Her name is Elizabeth, she is just one year old, born in Carupano at the Sucre state of Venezuela. She is been treated in Caracas. This gorgeous warrior was diagnosed with RETINOBLASTOMA IN STAGE 2B in her right eye by the PEDIATRIC SERVICE OF ONCOLOGY. She was operated from this tumor on 07/18/2018 and also went through 7 cycles of Systemic Chemotherapy.
To continue fighting her illness it is necessary to undergo radiotherapy urgently.
Unfortunately her parents do not count with the necessary economic means to assume such treatment for this little warrior. The cost of her treatment was originally USD 7,000.00 (USD Seven thousand)in the equivalent rate of the local currency. Due to the great effort of her mother the initial cost was reduced to just USD 3,700.00 (USD three thousand and six hundred) amount which we need to collect as soon as possible due to the vital urgency of her case.
UPDATE on July 9th 2019: We have raised USD 600,00 and fortunately the clinic’s board of directors accepted TODAY to at least START the radiotherapy treatment while we continue raising the funds! We are so glad to know this.
We kindly invite you to join us for this noble and vital cause to help this innocent child and her humble family.
WHY ASK FOR DONATIONS IN DOLLARS?
In Venezuela current hyperinflation makes unviable to rise the needed funds in local currency. That is why we are asking for your donation in US dollars. If you live outside the USA, do not worry: the payment platform from GOGETFUNDING.COM will do the needed currency conversion.
HOW THE FUNDS WILL BE USED?
Although the funds are been collected in the US, we accept donations from any country, and all money received will be used to support the very much needed medical treatment for little Elizabeth. All donated funds will be converted to pay for the clinic and medical supplies. Any additional money received will be used to help her to cope with recovery costs and make sure she gets properly fed and dressed and be strong enough for the radiotherapy.
THANKS FOR YOUR DONATION!
