Story

Whilst most of Kaira's medical care will be covered by insurance, some of it won't. The funds raised will help relieve the pressure of the additional associated medical costs for Kaira and Tip & Ryo's household bills during this stressful time....

8 weeks ago our friends in California welcomed their beautiful daughter, Kaira, into the world.

On Wednesday night, 9th May, Kaira was crying in Ryo’s arms and lost consciousness. She was also gasping for air so she was taken straight to hospital. After they took some vitals and Kaira was seen by a doctor she was discharged as her temperature and heart rate seemed fine. Kaira usually makes great eye contact but when she opened her eyes she had a completely blank stare. Tip and Ryo tried to explain to the doctor about her unusual behavior but it was believed that symptoms were normal at that stage. The doctor scheduled a pediatric appointment for the next morning and they were sent home for the night.

On Thursday at 10am Kaira attended the pediatric appointment. There the pediatrician said she looked pale and needed immediate attention and called 911. Once the medics arrived it was decided that Kaira would be taken to a different hospital, CHOC - Children's Hospital of Orange County, California.

An MRI showed that Kaira had a stroke, which led to the bleeding in her brain.

For the last 2 days, she’s been having silent seizures. A new definition of “suffering in silence.” The seizures occur in waves of every couple of hours, every 5 minutes. They can’t seem to get it under control.

Doctors are leaning towards a blood disorder that was likely to have caused the stroke, and the stroke is causing the seizures. Further tests are currently being carried out.

Please help us support the family to minimise any financial pressure, allowing them to be by Kaira's side at this difficult time and during her recovery.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read about Kaira and donating. your support means the world to Tip and Ryo.
