We don't really know how, but this was covered by Milenio, a local Mexico City News Channel.

Muchas gracias por el apoyo!

A small update on Nadia's situation.

Last week, we were finally able to transfer Nadia to another hospital, because our family could not keep up with the costs there. So far Nadia has gone through more than 20 surgeries and received 15 transfusions. Skin recovery has been particularly tricky, since such an exposed area is vulnerable to catch nosocomial infections, and the skin grafts cannot be implanted while there is an infection. The last big surgery was an abdominoplasty to use her own skin to cover part of the exposed wounds, and it seems to have successfully covered most of her abdomen, and we hope that the exposed left thigh will soon follow. This has all been very painful for Nadia, and after a month and three weeks her spirits are quite down. Fortunately she is somehow stable, though in permanent risk of acquiring another nosocomial infection due to all the exposed wound on her leg and all the catheters they put in her.

Our family is quite surprised with the support and solidarity we've received, for in only three weeks since this crowdfunding campaign began we have raised around 7,200 CHF/USD, all thanks to your kind support and generosity. We all have also received amazing words of support, and for that we are specially thankful, they really help to keep the spirit up!

However, since the insurance ran out her medical bills have been around 120,000 CHF/USD, and growing by the day. Without meaning to abuse your kindness, I would like to ask you to share and repost the link to the campaign to whoever you can, since the wonder of this platforms is that it can reach kind solidarity far and quick.

On behalf of Nadia, our family and myself, thanks a lot!

Since last Monday, Nadia has had three surgeries: two (one on Monday, one on Wednesday) for cleanup of the exposed area and checking on a nasty opportunistic hospital-acquired infection that had prevented the doctors from implanting new skin grafts. On Friday she went in again, and fortunately the infection had significantly receded, so the doctors took the opportunity and after 7 hrs they covered a large part of her abdomen and upper leg. Since the skin is not growing back, she got some patches of skin substitute and wound dressings to guide the skin recovery. She also had the catheters draining water from her lungs removed. We are happy and hopeful for these news, as her situation is stable yet delicate.

As of today, and thanks to all your donations, our crowdfunding has gathered around 2,500 CHF. We are enormously grateful for the donations and kind messages of support all our family has received. Your donations will partly cover the costs of these surgeries. Next Tuesday she will go again into surgery and if the infection has receded, she will need new skin patches to cover the rest of her exposed wounds on her leg. Please keep on supporting her by donating and spreading the word. If you already have, we cannot thank you enough!
