Whenever anyone tells me to make a wish for anything, I always ask for good health for everyone in my family. While it may seem like a selfless wish, it's actually also really just for me because I don't think I'm strong enough to handle it when someone I dearly love is suffering from a serious illness. More so if that family member is my own child. I don't think I would be strong enough. But of course there will be no choice but to.
Sadly, the family of a friend of mine is now going through a hard challenge where their youngest member of the family, (and when I say young, I mean 3 months old) is suffering from a serious illness. It breaks my heart whenever I hear about a baby who has no choice but to battle sickness.
I am sharing this because their family needs help. Any amount will be a big help. Even just sharing this is a great help as well. Little Coby is an innocent infant who deserves to live life to the fullest. All babies do.
Craig Jacob "Coby" Araos Castillo, a 3 month old baby diagnosed with severe neonatal hepatitis. #CobyStrong
He's a 3 month old baby diagnosed with severe neonatal hepatitis. He has cytomegalovirus infection, went into liver failure, and the work-up to rule out other associated treatable causes has turned out negative.
His family and friends are not giving up hope for him even though the doctors are not very optimistic about his chances.
This page aims to be a centralized portal of information and updates about Coby for people who want to know how he is doing right now.
The secondary purpose of this page is to gather and disseminate information about possible treatments for liver diseases for babies in the hopes of helping Coby and others like him.
We encourage our followers to post anything that they think can help.
I also applaud their family for sharing their journey every step of the way. This way, we can all be aware of this type of health challenge and hopefully can help others who might be suffering the same.
Please like and visit the Hope for Coby Facebook page to be updated with his progress and to see how you can help.
