Jhaira Mae Villa, my friend’s daughter was born with a heart enlargement and has a hole in it. In medical term, they call it Ventricular Septal Defect. They only found out about it after 3 years of her existence.
VSD is a hole in the wall separating the two lower chambers of the heart. In normal development, the wall between the chambers closes before the fetus is born, so that by birth, oxygen-rich blood is kept from mixing with the oxygen-poor blood. When the hole does not close, it may cause higher pressure in the heart or reduced oxygen to the body.

After 4 years of medical treatment, doctor advised that they need to undergo surgery.
In other words, I am deeply appealing for your support for my friend’s ( Jess Rodriguez Villa) daughter. The cost of the operation estimates to Php600k. She also needs continuous medical treatment after the operation. Jess is a single mother of 3 kids thus she is unable to shoulder the financial responsibility from the said operation.
She is currently seeking help from organizations such as Bantay Bata, PCSO and Philippine Heart Center. To date, she was given total approved donation for Php185k from Heart Center and PCSO and Php14,850 from friends.
The schedule of the operation will be announced later on. Hopefully, before the year ends. Jes can’t tell exactly when as it will depend on the funds on hand.
Still a long way to go and any financial help will be appreciated.
