Last month, our hearts were tugged by couple Kaiser Louren Yves and Mizpah Rej Balaoro who said their wedding vows while she was lying on her hospital bed. A day after their impromptu wedding ceremony, baby boy Sebastian was born.
After Sebastian was born, he was confined inside the newborn intensive care unit (NICU) to treat some problems because he was born prematurely.
Now, they are knocking on everyone’s hearts to help raise funds for baby Sebastian’s continuous medication and other needs. Baby Sebastian is now three weeks old and is currently battling an infection.

A benefit concert will be held on October 25 entitled “My Beating Heart” to raise funds for baby Sebastian.
Kaiser said the proceeds of the benefit concert will be beneficial aside from the prayers which are also needed for his baby to recover.
“Makakatulong ‘yong proceeds dahil sa ngayon ay may infection pa si baby. Still fighting pa rin siya, hindi pa masabi exact status niya pero nag-blood transfusion siya. Nagbigay ako ng dugo ngayon para sa kanya kasi maputla siya,” he said.
He said the estimated goal of the benefit concert is to earn at least P150,000.
The benefit concert will feature Myk Perez, a friend of Kaiser, and other local performers on October 25 at 7:00 p.m. at Homegrown Café Bar along Jose Rizal Avenue.
He said the support of the locals of the city will help Sebastian a lot.
He also invited them to support the benefit concert and to extend prayers.
“Sa tingin ko naman makakatulong sila, marami naman siguro su-support kay baby and sa amin. Samahan niyo kaming lumalaban, manalangin sa health ng aming anak. Maraming salamat sa inyo,” he said.
Kaiser also extended his gratitude to some of his friends who extended support and help to their current situation.
“Gusto ko rin magpasalamat sa kaibigan kong si Fau Mariposa and Novee Nalica and sa Dotaboys, Palawan Sounds, Kuya Myk and Mari Cortez,” he said.
