Baby Chino's heart surgery appeal

As a dad to a 7-month old healthy boy, I just can't help but feel the anguish of Cynch Nebrao, a friend of mine back in college. Please include baby Chino (suffering from severe mitral regurgitation with mild stenosis) in your prayers. If you are able to, please consider giving a donation as well through -- thanks!

Dear Family & Friends,

After serving for more than a decade as missionaries for Couples for Christ and after even going for long-term mission in Africa together, Clarke and Cynch Nebrao discover that their only 10-month old son Chino has severe mitral regurgitation with mild stenosis, Simply put, the Nebraos’ third child has a defective heart valve. The condition
affects only 2% of the world’s population and survival rate is only 5%. Open heart surgery to treat baby Chino’s condition, including hospitalization expenses and medications is going to cost around Php 2 million or USD 45, 000.

This is why, we, a group of Clarke and Cynch’s friends came together to talk about what could be done to help them during this trying time. Concretely, we would like to invite you to help raise a portion of the funds Chino needs to get a chance to live. We are writing this letter to ask for any amount you could spare for Chino’s cause. We need 2,000
generous souls to give, at least, Php 1,000 (USD 20) each. Also, your prayers and gestures of support to the Nebrao family would work wonders.

His doctors say that he needs to undergo surgery before he turns one; he turns one in October. This is why his cause is pretty urgent. We would appreciate it very much if you would help spread the word and take up Chino’s cause as your own and pray for his healing.

For more information about baby Chino’s condition and how you can help, please visit You can also donate via Paypal on the website. Follow baby Chino, as well, on Twitter

Champions for Chino

Let's start a chain of prayers around the world! It would be appreciated if we could pray at 3PM, 6PM and 9PM everyday for Chino and his healing.

Lord Jesus, we trust in Your great mercy and love for Chino. We lift him up to You, his mind, body and soul. We ask You, dear Jesus, to heal Chino. Let very cell in his body, his heart give You glory. Place Chino’s entire family and all who care for him under the mantle of Mother Mary’s protection and comfort. Let this experience be an experience of conversion and an affirmation of faith for many. Send us Your Holy Spirit in all that we do. Amen. One Our Father. One Hail Mary. One Glory Be.
