Children in the Philippines who live in extreme poverty lack access to quality healthcare. They are often denied assistance and are unable to afford necessities to improve their quality of life. Meet baby Crystal Anne. She is a little over one year old. Her mom has never seen her smile. However, she hears her cry in pain all the time and there is nothing she can do to ease it. Crystal Anne has a Meningoencephalocele and Hydrocephalus. (Meningoencephalocele is a type of encephalocele, which is an abnormal sac of fluid, brain tissue, and meninges (membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord) that extends through a defect in the skull.) The only effective treatment for this condition is reparative surgery that costs $5,900. The family doesn't have this kind of money. But they are willing to do everything possible for their baby girl. During the interview with Rose - Crystal's mom - we found out that they are so desperate that they were prepared to borrow money from a loan shark. If the family acquired this money from him, they would have to repay a certain amount daily with a 20% interest. This family is so poor they are sometimes unable to afford the gauze needed to change the dressings on Crystal's "lump" 2-3 times a day. Taking a loan of this type would be a disaster. This family was referred to us by our neurosurgeon. This case is extremely urgent. Please help Crystal's family finally see their baby girl comfortable and smiling!
