About me and About Job

Hi!

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Mara Guevara. I’m an Architect by day and wannabe triathlete at night. I’ll be celebrating my twenty-sixth (26th) birthday this 08 May 2011. This year, I’ve decided to hold a benefit run for Job Tyrese.

Job Tyrese is a nine month old baby who was born with Biliary Atresia – a fatal, serious and rare liver disease that affects 1 in 15,000 newborn infants. His liver does not have bile ducts which are supposed to help the liver drain out bile to pass it to the intestines for proper food digestion. This disease is destroying his liver. He has yellowish eyes and skin (jaundice) and his stomach is noticeably bigger than normal babies’.  When he was two months old, he underwent a Kasai procedure. This procedure temporarily provides a passageway for his liver. Unfortunately, the procedure was a failure. His only option at this point is a liver transplant which costs approximately Php 3 million.

Job’s parents are newlyweds who work as nurses and only make enough money for daily expenses and medications. They started a blog (http://www.hopeforjob.blogspot.com) to raise funds for their son’s liver transplant, and this is where my journey begins.
