BANGKOK - Jan. 21, 2016 - PRLog -- In early 2015, a CT-scan confirmed that Ukiko Rojcharatwatana, then 9-months old, was afflicted with Crouzon syndrome. This news was devastating to Uki's single mother, Phunwadee "DeeDee" Rojcharatwatana, who learned that her youngest daughter would be facing months of observation, surgeries, and eventual reconstructive surgery. It's a diagnosis that continues to offer up challenges for DeeDee, who describes Uki as a beautiful and intelligent girl who loves to write, draw, dance, and listen to music.

Apart from the obvious emotional strain, the medical treatment has also created a substantial financial burden on the family. Borrowing from supportive friends and family has carried them this far, but paying for continuation of Uki's treatments has become a nearly insurmountable proposition.

In hopes of overcoming the financial hurdles to give her daughter the care and treatment she requires, Uki's mother has launched a fundraising campaign through YouCaring.com, a crowdfunding site akin to Kickstarter, but focused on helping people in need.

Donations of any amount are appreciated, and proceeds will be used to help fund Uki's next upcoming surgery -- one that is intended to prevent her from incurring any permanent brain damage as a result of her condition.
