Alphonse was born with a heart condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. He needs to undergo an open heart surgery to survive and he needs it no later than 3 months since he was born or he will not make it. His parents are doing their best to raise funds for the surgery, which will cost $12,500 and they have to raise it in a month so Alphonse's surgery will be scheduled the soonest possible time. Read more about his condition in his mom's blog, An Innocent Heart.
"Our family should’ve been the happiest today but this situation brought us tears and worry for our little prince. Every single day, he is trying his best. You will never hear him cry. He cannot even feed a straight 1 oz of milk because it puts stress to his heart. He needs to rest in between small feedings. I cannot breastfeed him because he is not comfortable so I had to pump regularly and give it to him using a feeding bottle. He is fighting and as a family, we want to fight with him." - Mye de Leon, Alphonse's Mom
