Lyndon Copland, a New Zealander, a friend, who i have met on

the internet,
knew Antoinette's relative from New Zealand. He asked me if

I could check out her situation,
and if operation was still possible.I did meet Marife, Antoinette's

mother,
and brought them to the doctor.Unfortunately, the Doctor told

me, it's too late.
There's too little brain left, the surgery should have been

done
a few years after she was born.

Antoinette was stricken with Hydrocephalus since the day she

was born. She was 8 years old at the time I met her, but her

body was trapped in an 8-month old infant.
Her parents could not afford an operation.They knew, she would

not live long.
But obviously, Antoinette was fighting for her life.

 

 


Marife is 30 yrs old, and a mother of 5 children.
Her husband was a security guard, but is presently unemployed.
She takes care of plants and sells them for a living.

 


This is Marife's Garden, and her house is located behind it.
She averages an income of $1.00/day.


Despite the situation, she maintains a sunny disposition,
and a strong faith in God

I have never aspired to be a superwoman, nor can


I interfere in someone else's karma,
(so they say, in the eastern philosophy), But I just couldn't

 

sleep nights,
conscious of her plight, moreso now, that I am aware of it.
Worse than that, I feel frustrated not being able to do something

about it.
Antoinette did give it a good fight. No one expected her to live

10 long years.

I dedicate this page in the loving memory of Antoinette

Racho,
and her fighting spirit. In her passive still way, she has touched

my life and all the people around her, who knew her personally.

She has also touched the lives of people who have never met her

from different parts of the world, who knew her from my website.

For those, who supported Antoinette and her family, Thank You

so much…you all know who you are !
