Sending love to little Franchesca.

No. 141: Name: Francesca Ole Estoquia, 3, Congenital Heart Disease Ventricular Septal Defect Large (severe pulmonary hypertension with inlet extension).

Francesca is the youngest of two siblings. She was diagnosed with congenital heart disease and is prescribed for immediate open-heart surgery. She and her mother have been temporarily living in Caloocan where she gets her medical treatment from a government hospital. The father is a sugar-cane farmer with earnings of Php 6,000 a month. The father and the eldest child were left in the province of Negros Occidental while the mother and Francesca were here in Manila. Unfortunately, the province was severely hit by the devastating typhoon Odette and the family’s house was severely damaged. This catastrophe has added to the mother’s worrisome concerns. As much as she wants to go back home but she just couldn’t, considering the medical condition of their sick child. Still, they are very thankful that her husband and the eldest child were safe.

Chummy Chum Foundation immediately sent help for little Francesca with cash assistance for her medical management, grocery items to share with her family, along with Chummy Chum freebies like coloring books, mini stuff toys, wrist bands, and special gifts.
