Please help Melanie

Melanie is 15 years old and her doctor just told us that she will not live to see her 18th birthday. Mel had a case or Rheumatic Fever which now resulted in Rheumatic Heart Disease. Though the incidence of rheumatic fever/rheumatic heart disease is low in the United States, it continues to be the leading cause of cardiovascular death during the first five decades of life in the developing world.


Melanie Serbano was born on July 18th 1995 in a small province in the Philippines. She has five siblings. Three of them are ages 8, 7 and 5. Melanie's mom is a housekeeper and her dad is a sugar cane farmer, but there wasn't enough income to support her family. In 6th grade, Mel dropped out of school to get a job. She took odd jobs like house keeping and babysitting to bring food on the table for her sisters.

With the recent Rheumatic Fever attack, Mel is now in need of daily pain medication, heart failure medication, monthly antibiotic injections and continuous medical care for the rest of her life. We are trying to raise funds for Mel's immediate medical needs for heart testing and to secure her daily and monthly medications.

Your donation will save her life.
 

  


We have a very small goal of only $2,000 with this fundraiser. We are reaching out to ask for help to Heal Mel's Heart and Save Her Life

Please feel free to share her link on your facebook, twitter or share her donation widget. We thank you from the bottom of my hearts for any help you can give.

  • Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!

    will be well-known, due to its feature contents.

  • Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working
    with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being
    off-topic but I had to ask!

  • You could definitely see your enthusiasm in the work you write.
    The sector hopes for even more passionate writers like you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe.
    Always follow your heart.

  • Hey there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a collection of volunteers and starting
    a new project in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us valuable information to
    work on. You have done a extraordinary job!

  • My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net
    from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer
    all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  • Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  • I’m no longer sure where you are getting your info, however great topic. I needs to spend a while finding out much more or working out more. Thank you for excellent info I used to be searching for this information for my mission.|
