The parents and family Of marco ortiz Jr. Are uniting to raise money to help with his Hearing surgery.. Please let's help this lil guy..

My name is petrona portillo i am Junior's mom. My son is 2 years old. He was born on january 10 2010, when jr was born he was diagnosed With microtia. Microtia is a congenital deformity where the pinna (external ear) is underdeveloped (microtia). A completely undeveloped pinna is referred to as anotia (anotia). Because microtia and anotia have the same origin, it can be referred to microtia-anotia,. Microtia can be unilateral (one side only) or bilateral (affecting both sides). Microtia occurs in 1 out of about 8,000–10,000 births. Inunilateral microtia, the right ear is most commonly affected. The hearing loss associated with congenital aural atresia is a conductive hearing loss—hearing loss caused by inefficient conduction of sound to the inner ear. Essentially, children with aural atresia have hearing loss because the sound cannot travel into the (usually) healthy inner ear—there is no ear canal, no eardrum, and the small ear bones (malleus/hammer, incus/anvil, and stapes/stirrup) are underdeveloped.Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.
God Bless you.
