(UPDATE)Brave Shawn - A fundraising campaign for Baby Shawn's shunt operation- $330 in total donations alone.

Fundition: A Fundraising Campaign that aims to support baby Shawn's Shunt Surgery


Brave Shawn

Baby Shawn and his family are so grateful to those people who funded his campaign and especially to the steemit community which unitedly gave a tremendous support. That's baby Shawn, that's his current situation now. Day by day, as time goes by, his head is getting bigger. I did converse with his mother lately and gave each other an update. She told me that they managed to convince the hospital to consider the operation without the full payment on ready instead, they have to acquire first the shunt tool for the head which has a cost of 25k PHP or $500 at most. When it will be ready, they'll be setting the schedule for the operation immediately. While on my side was, I gave some updates about the big support which unexpected for me, to be honest. I gave her an initial deposit to her bank account coming from donations that were directly sent on my steemit account.

Given the amount I sent(which will be discussed below) as an initial deposit, help from friends and families of the patient and if they've already collected the money for the tool, they'll be pushing the operation within this week.
