Hi and welcome!

We do have http://vbfphilippines.org. Try that and see if there's someone close to you.

Have you tried something like crowdfunding? Or gofundme.com?

I know that Dr. Levitin is planning to open an office in Guam. While I know it's a little closer to the philippines ... well, it's not as far away as Boston. Get in touch with Dr. Levitin at http://birthmarkcare.com

Mabuhay, mommay2009,
The Rotary Club of Makati West was helping families get treatments a few years ago. Have you contacted the Makati Medical Center? I bet they have a specialist on staff who can help you.
Good luck.
What did Dr. Levitin say? Did you send your photo to him his website?
