Baby Arabella Panes is turning seven months this 17 August, 2020.
The baby is by, all appearances, healthy and happy.
But, according to her father Jonathan, by Ara is diagnosed Congenital Heart Disease, Atrioventricular Septal Defect, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.
Here is Jonathan’s appeal posted verbatim in his Facebook page.
Dear friends and families:
Hope you’re all well in this time of pandemic and thank you for asking the condition of our little sweet Ara. She is in great shape – for now.
When she had her check up last week, her pedia mentioned she’s well. She suggested and referred for a 2D-echo just to make sure everything’s in shape.
This morning is a hopeful morning. Though doubtful to go because of the pandemic, we brought her to the laboratory.
Surprised, that we thought this day is a nightmare, we wanted to wake up. Just as her Ate Ianna weep as we told her, as their parents we need to be strong. Our Ara needs an open heart surgery due to Congenital Heart Disease, Atrioventricular Septal Defect, Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.
I have great regards to those who are striving hard at this challenging times. But for our Ara, we will even more strive. We are now down and humble asking for any donations, referrals, financial assistance.
Thank you for reading this lenghty post. Please don’t forget to repost or share so that we can reach people with golden hearts to help us raise funds for the surgery.
