Neva of ManilaMommy steered this little boy’s journey into my radar and I can’t help but empathize with this family as a mother.
From the website:
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.
There are several ways you can help Alphonse raise the money (around $12,000) so he can get his surgery and go on to live a full and healthy life. From a $10 donation to digital scrapbook gift card, and even a purchase of super special gift boxes designed and made by Alphonse’s mom and her team, there’s a way that you can contribute to the extent of your capability.

I pray for blessings upon blessings for you and your family Alphonse! We send our love to you.
