I stumbled upon baby Anya's site.. She is 7 months old Lissencephaly type 1; a rare brain disease wherein my brain is very smooth compared to the regular brain with lots of hills and valleys.. Some parts of her brain are missing, she have hydrocephalus, she has poor vision & profound hearing loss on both her ears..
But we can make her feel our love by extending our hand to her and putting our hands in prayer position..

The sound of an airplane engine is deafening to our ears, but comes as a whisper to Anya. She is a candidate for cochlear implants which cost around PhP1,000,000.00 per ear. By statistics, the sooner a child has cochlear implants, the better the outcome will be. Early intervention is always the best. She can also already enroll in Auditory-Verbal Therapy which will help her develop her speech.Part of the ticket sales of the concert will be donated to help Anya hear and eventually help her speak. Anya will be 9 months and half by the date of the concert.
I don't know Anya or any of her family & friends.. But I know God made me go to her site so that I could post it on my blogs so that we could support Anya in whatever way we CAN. Our prayers will move Anya's mountain..
