About Alphonse

Alphonse De Leon was born on December 27, 2012. Unlike any other babies, he was barely crying when he got out. Little did his parents know that their little man has a serious health issue. 

The following day, the doctors informed his family that Alphonse has a congenital heart disorder called Tetralogy of Fallot - there is a hole in his lower heart chambers causing him to not have enough oxygenated blood in his lungs and body. This is such a devastating news for them. It was supposed to be a happy day with their new bundle of joy around. But now, they are facing another challenge in their life because Alphonse will have to undergo an open heart surgery to cure his illness and be able to live a healthy life.

Help Alphonse Get His Surgery in February 2013

You can make a difference in this little boy's life. The family is in dire need of raising the surgery cost before February and the clock is ticking. Help Alphonse get his surgery done on time so he can live a healthy life and be with his family.
 
At present, he is in the Philippines and there is no medical insurance to cover the cost of the surgery. They were advised to have it done in a public hospital but even so, the cost was estimated to be $12500 just for the surgery alone. According to the doctor, the surgery must be done at 6 weeks old (the earliest) or 3months old (the latest). If not, he will not be able to make it.

What Alphonse Need?

Alphonse needs $12,500 by February 2013 in order to get a surgery schedule. Any amount you can contribute is greatly appreciated.
