"Ailing kid gets help from strangers"
0:24 AM (Manila Time) | September 02, 2001
By Volt Contreras and Blanche S. Rivera
Inquirer News Service

"IN this cold world, one can still depend on the kindness of strangers."
"When Dajed was asleep, Jennifer and her sister would take turns surfing the Net in search of treatment for the child's condition, as well as foundations that could extend assistance. They have been hooked up since December last year."
"Jennifer sent e-mails to around 10 international foundations championing the rights and welfare of children, but few bothered to respond."
"Their hopes flagging, Jennifer's sister came across a story of a Chinese boy who was helped by a medical team in the United States through the efforts of Children’s Rights Across the World...."
"We were getting frustrated because everyone was ignoring us, Jennifer says. This was the last shot, so we were so thankful that finally, somebody out there was taking us seriously. It was the answer to our prayers."
"Dajed and her parents will fly to the United States for her Sept. 27 operation at the Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx in New York. She will get a valve homograft, the best medical option for her abnormal heart."
Article correction: The Inquirer text says, the actual Rotary District, cooperating with BOES.ORG is New York based. Correct is Gift of Life Foundation of Rotary District 7490, New Jersey

"The surgery was performed for the purpose of putting a valve homograft – available only in the United States – inside Dajed's chest. It was the best option for her to survive, this child who had no main pulmonary valve".
"Who would think that this lively and cheerful two-year-old underwent surgery lasting seven-and-a-half hours only three months ago?"
