What are Colorectal Defects or Anorectal Anomalies?
Anorectal anomalies are medical problems affecting the structure of the anus and rectum. A person with an anorectal problem would have some sort of deformative feature of the anus or rectum, collectively known as an anorectal malformation.
On the other hand, an imperforate anus or anorectal malformations (ARMs) are birth defects in which the rectum is malformed. ARMs are a spectrum of different congenital anomalies in males and females, that varies from fairly minor lesions, as well as complex anomalies.
It’s when the story of ColorKiddos started:
April 16, 2009, a beautiful baby girl was born to Joey and Maricar. A few hours after the birth, the pediatrician went in to Maricar’s room and told her that the other parts of the baby’s body are normal except for one – she has imperforate anus (rectum is malformed). Not knowing what that defect was, Maricar’s first response was, “What’s the solution? What can be done?”. So the doctor went on and explained the possibility of the little one to have colostomy and that a surgeon is needed to do the procedure. In simple terms, Meimei (the baby’s name) will have a hole on her side with her intestine exposed, so her feces can leave the body. On April 18th, the colostomy was done. Meimei went out of the hospital 23rd of April.
As a thanks giving offering, Maricar and Joey decided to put up something that will be a testimony of God’s goodness, HIS COMFORT in times of trouble, and His unending provision by establishing ColorKiddos, to provide support to parents and children that are going through what they have gone through. ColorKiddos will be a place where people in the net can find good products and help finance the needs of the colorectal children. It is also our desire that through this site, we can teach moms, dads and caregivers the proper care for a colorkiddo.
