 AFTER two miscarriages, Ooi Soo Yi, 31, was overjoyed when her  daughter was born three months ago.
 However, her excitement was shortlived when baby Ashley Poi Pei Ying was diagnosed with a heart condition.
 “When Ashley was a month old,   my husband and I brought her for  routine check-ups, but at that time, the doctors did not detect anything   wrong with her.
 “However, two months later,
our daughter started breathing rapidly, rejected her milk and her body temperature was high,” she said.
She and her husband, Alvin Poh Wai Hong, 30, immediately brought Ashley to Serdang Hospital where she was diagnosed with Patent Ductus Arteriosus, a congenital heart disorder in which an extra blood vessel fails to close after birth.
The toddler was then transferred to Gleneagles Intan Medical Centre here.
Paediatric cardiologist Dr Lim Miin Kang said in her present clinical condition, Ashley, who is  on respiratory support and under critical care, would need to undergo  surgery immediately.
Ooi said because of the heart condition, her daughter also suffered from several infections,  and they were informed by the hospital that the infections  would worsen if not treated immediately.
Ooi, who  resigned from her  job when she was three months’ pregnant with Ashley, said they now faced  the burden of raising    RM40,000  for their baby’s operation.
The family had tried to raise money, including withdrawing RM7,000 from Ooi’s Employees Provident Fund account, but it was  not sufficient.
“We can hardly make ends meet with so many expenses   for our daughter.
“We hope that the public can help us,” said Ooi.
All contributions should be sent to the New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd, with the patient’s name written on the reverse side and addressed  to: The Cashier, Finance Department/Charity Unit NSTP, The New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd, 31 Jalan Riong, 59100, Kuala Lumpur.
