Recurrent fever and seizures – these are just some of the symptoms of TB Meningitis and Hydrocephalus afflicting Joshua Bagan. The two-year old boy is in need of immediate medication to survive.

A couple from Alabel, Saranggani Province is seeking help from Bantay Bata 163 Davao in giving the needed medical treatment for their two-year old baby boy, Joshua who is suffering from TB Meningitis complicated with hydrocephalus.

In a small room of Davao Medical Center, little boy Joshua struggles to survive.

"We were told by the doctors that a VP Shunt operation will not be possible if my son will not be treated from his TB Meningitis"., Joshua's mom, Jenny, told Bantay Bata.
The couple does NOT have a regular source of income, except for the father’s income as a tricycle driver.

Joshua needs a VP Shunting Operation for his hydrocephalus and medicines for the treatment of TB Meningitis.

His parents call for help for their son to be saved.

"We worry so much about my son’s condition. Please help us, so my child will get better", Joshua's father, Marven added.

Joshua's stay in the hospital makes the couple more hopeful that someday, they can go back to their house thankful for a new lease on life.
