August 9, 2019  16:56

The parents of an 11-month-old girl from the Philippines are trying to find a surgeon as their daughter MK Cruz, who is 11 months old, was born with a build-up of fluid on her brain, Daily Mail reported

According to the girl's parents, Cathleen Chavoso and Reynaldo Cruz, their daughter is thought to have hydrocephalus.

A huge growth has already caused a deterioration in the baby's vision. Doctors are in no hurry with forecasts, since surgery can be dangerous.

Parents rely on the opinion of a specialist from the US who should come to the Philippines.

'My daughter can be saved. There are doctors who can do it. We will keep fighting for her,’ the mother said.
