A few days ago, I was sent a link in facebook about baby Aiyanna, who was born with a complex cyanotic heart disease (complete atrioventricular septal defect, single atrium, single ventricle, malpose great arteries, pulmonary stenosis, closed PDA). She has what they call single ventricle defect, which is a very rare congenital heart defect. A normal person would have 4 chambers in his heart but Aiyanna only has 2. Her latest 2D echo result suggests heterotaxy heart condition and she is considered for heterotaxy syndrome, another rare defect involving the arrangement of the heart and other organs in the chest and the abdomen manifesting malposition as well as abnormal symmetry. Why am I giving so much focus on Baby Aiyanna? Baby Aiyanna is actually a daughter of a fellow former Doctor to the Barrios (Doc Yash, Batch 21). The multiple issues with her heart requires three (3) stages of surgery. Doc Yash and his family is in need of financial support to help save their baby and give her a bright future. I am posting Baby Aiyanna's picture here and also a link to their page where you can learn more about Baby Aiyanna and how you can help raise the necessary funds. One fundraising activity that they are doing is selling t-shirts for only 250 pesos or roughly 6 US Dollars. They are hoping to sell 6,000 of those to raise the 600,000 pesos (14,000 US Dollars) for Baby Aiyanna's operation. For anyone who accidentally reads this blog and has some extra to spend for a shirt, please contact them and help them.
