A Call to Generous Hearts

Dear friends, readers:

Follows is a solicitation letter for a girl needing financial help for her liver transplant.  Her father and I were former officemates in Amkor and I know him (and his family) to be good people. PLEASE HELP by doing any or all of the following:

1. Make a donation of ANY AMOUNT. (If there are a thousand of us making a P50 donation, that makes P50,000.00.. a higher donation from more people makes a bigger help.)

2. Forward the message to people you think can help or may help-- those who may want to make a donation, doctors and hospitals who can give free services, people who can help the family get some discounts or anything that would make the costs of the operation more within reach (free medicines, etc).

3. Please include the family, especially the little girl Nikka in your prayers.

As a parent myself I feel for both Gil and Dolly.  Please, please I ask you to help.

Thank you.

Anne

Mga kaibigan,

Kami, si Gil at Dolly Silva, mag-asawa, may tatlong anak, nakatira sa Cainta, Rizal ay humihingi ng inyong tulong para sa aming bunsong anak na si NINA KRISTINA C. SILVA (Nikka), 8.7 taong gulang. Pagkapanganak kay Nikka noong December 2002, nalaman na mayrron siyang “biliary atresia”, isang sakit na kung saan nasira/hindi tumubo/nagbara ang biliary system na daluyan ng bile patungong intestine. Sa ikatlong buwan niya, inoperahan siya (kasai procedure) upang mag-connect ng bahagi ng small intestine sa kanyang liver upang maging daluyan ng bile mula sa liver patungong intestine.

Sa mga nakaraang taon inalagaan naming siya sa tulong ng gastrologist upang maging malusog ang kanyang liver. Unti-unti naging cirrhosis ang liver niya at lumaki ang kanyang spleen. May mga pamamaga na rin ng mga ugat niya sa paligid ng atay. Sa pagtagal ng mga taon, unti-unting nasisira ng bile ang kanyang liver. Sa ngayon po, bumababa na ang mga kakayahan ng kanyang liver. Ang tanging paraan ay ang LIVER TRANSPLANTATION. Ang liver transplantation po ay nagkakahalaga ng Ph 4.5M. Ang liver ay maaring manggaling sa live donor o sa brain dead na pasyente.

Nagkakaroon si Nikka ng mga testing upang sumailalim sa liver transplantation sa Medical City, Ortigas. May mga kaibigan po kaming tagalabas na kasalukuyang tumutulong sa pangangalap ng pondo para sa transplantation. May maliit na halaga na kaming naitabi para kay Nikka ngunit hindi ito sapat. Buong-kababaang loob po kaming humingi ng tulong upang malikom ang pondo para sa kanyang operasyon. Maaari po kayong maghulog ng inyong donasyon sa mga bank account numbers na 'to:

Why AnneThology?

Anthology means a collection of poems, short stories, plays, songs, or excerpts. My name is Anne, and this blog contains a collection of my thoughts, musings and writings (poems, short stories), some songs I like, plus a sprinkling of excerpts I find worth sharing --hence, AnneThology.

Did you know?

Anthology derives from the Greek word ἀνθολογία (anthologia; literally “flower-gathering”) for garland — or bouquet of flowers — which was the title of the earliest surviving anthology, assembled by Meleager of Gadara.

Look, what I have -- these are all for you.
