This is the story of a little boy named Alexander Benedict P. Caringal or Alab for short. He has been diagnosed to have Alpha Thalassemia Major or 4-Gene Deletion Alpha Thalassemia. He was born premature at 29 weeks with a failing heart, for which he stayed in the Neonatal ICU for 3 and a half months.
Alab's story is one for the books. He miraculously defied insurmountable odds. He is the 1st and only survivor of this condition in the Philippines and is amongst the very very few cases reported worldwide.
His journey has been an inspiration and ray of hope to many people, especially to families who have been going through similar situations.
Alab has been developing well, with no current medical problems, but requires lifetime blood transfusions every 3 weeks to keep his hemoglobin within normal range. The only known and acceptable cure to Alpha Thalassemia Major is a Bone Marrow Transplant, which he will be undergoing in the near future. This is his only chance to rid him of the blood transfusions and its future complications.
