Hi, my name is Blanca Estela Pérez Garcia and my family and I live in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I have started this GoGetFunding page for my younger brother, Flavio Pérez Garcia who, in December 2022, lost his leg after a tragic accident while at work. We are raising money to help cover his medical costs and a prosthesis.

Flavio is a very reserved, hard-working and honest 27 year-old man. In the place where he lives and its surroundings he has many friends. He is dedicated to working with wood, together with my dad, and unfortunately in December 2022 he had an accident on a hill where a huge slab of wood fell on his right leg. He was unable to reach a hospital for some time and he lost a lot of blood. When he was finally treated he had lost a lot of blood because an artery had been destroyed. In the first contact hospital they didn't have the equipment necessary to perform an artery surgery so we had to travel to two more hospitals until he was finally able to be treated. He spent 8 days in intensive care and when he was more stable we moved him to another less expensive hospital. It was there where he was forced to have his leg amputated because his life was still very much in danger. In the course of his time in the hospitals, he needed a total of 62 blood donations. We are very grateful to all those that helped us reach that goal as those blood donations saved my brother’s life. He is now much better thanks to his positive way of seeing life and moving forward.

Family and friends have already loaned us over $400,000 pesos ($20,000 USD) for medical and hospital expenses that were required to save his life and we have to pay them back. His next step is to obtain his prosthesis so that he can continue his life more normally. The prosthesis is another huge expense for my family as we do not have insurance coverage. We are looking to raise $235,000 pesos ($13,000 USD) to purchase the prosthesis. This is the most affordable prosthesis that we can find.

We truly appreciate your donations.



Hola, mi nombre es Blanca Estela Pérez García y mi familia y yo vivimos en Puerto Vallarta. He empezado esta página de GogetFunding para mi hermano menor, Flavio Pérez García, quien, en diciembre de 2022, perdió su pierna después de un accidente trágico mientras estaba en el trabajo. Estamos recaudando dinero para ayudar a cubrir sus costos médicos y una prótesis.

Flavio Pérez García tiene 27 años. Es una persona muy reservada, trabajadora y honesta. En el lugar donde vive y sus alrededores tiene muchas amistadas, él se dedica a trabajos de madera junto con mi papá y desafortunadamente en diciembre del 2022 tuvo un accidente en el cerro donde le cayó un enorme tablón de madera en su pierna derecha y por el tiempo en que duró sin poder llegar al hospital perdió bastante sangre y cuando por fin fue atendido el ya había perdido mucha sangre de su cuerpo porque una arteria le había destrozado y por allí se le estaba escapando toda su sangre, en el primer hospital de contacto no contaban con el equipo necesario para hacerle una cirugía de arteria entonces tuvimos que recorrer dos hospitales más y por fin fue atendido allí en ese hospital duro 8 días en terapia intensiva y ya cuando estaba más estable lo trasladamos a otro hospital menos costoso y allí fue en donde miramos que era necesario hacerle la amputación de su pierna porque ya su vida estaba aún más en peligro. En el transcurso de su vida en el hospital necesito un total de 62 donadores de sangre en los cuales llegamos a la meta, cosa que estamos muy agradecidos con todos los que nos ayudaron a reunir tanta sangre para salvar a mi hermano. Ahora estamos mucho mejor que antes gracias a su forma tan positiva que tiene de ver la vida y seguir avanzando ya solo nos falta obtener su prótesis para que él pueda continuar con sus obligaciones.

La familia y los amigos ya han cubierto más de $400.000 pesos ($20.000 USD) para gastos médicos y hospitalarios. Estos gastos son prestamos que se requirieron en el momento y el cual tenemos que pagarlos a las personas involucradas. Su siguiente paso es obtener su prótesis para que pueda continuar su vida con más normalidad. La prótesis es otro enorme gasto para mi familia, ya que no tenemos cobertura de seguro. Estamos buscando recaudar $235.000 pesos ($13.000 USD) para comprar la prótesis. Esta es la prótesis más asequible que podemos encontrar.

Le agradecemos por sus donaciones.
