Tiny Tia with Turners Syndrome
Je recueille 2 000 $ pour OMRM du Canada.
Hi there, this is Tia's mom. I would like to start off by saying that my daughter Tia is diagnosed with Turners Syndrome. Most babies(95%) diagnosed with Turners Syndrome do not make it past 20 weeks and my daughter was the 5% that did make it. I was asked if I wanted to abort her due to her conditions and I said no, I wanted to continue with the pregnancy. Tia is my second born, my first daughter passed away due to SIDS at 2 years old. I was not going to take a precious life away, because I know what heart ache that is. Tia is also missing her right hand, she has a horeshoe kidney and a mild coarctation of the aorta. She was born at 32 weeks & 4 days due to myself developing pre-eclampsia & HELPP Sydrome. I was in the hospital for a total of 42 days due to everything that has happened to my daughter & I. I currently live in a remote area, and my daughter requires a lot of medical trips to Toronto Sick Kids Hospital very soon, to check her heart, and to see a plastic surgeon. My car needs repairs so I am able to take my daughter to her appointments. She is due to make her first appointment before the end of August. Anything would kindly help, as this is for my daughter getting the best medical care she needs. Thank you kindly. Tias Mom
