todosUNO – A Conspiracy To Help The Neediest Hondurans

Update posted by Carla Perez On Aug 12, 2015

Julin's hip replacement surgery was this past Tuesday, August 4th. Everything went well and he's back home recovering with the caring and loving help of his wife Gloria, his children and friends. Click here for video message from Julin.

I will see him and Gloria in two weeks when they go back to the clinic for a check-up. Thank you all for helping to make this miracle happen for Julin and his family!

Below are some pictures of Julian's day at the clinic.

Love and light, Carla

Getting Prepped For Surgery

Morgan and Johnny are getting ready to set Julin's IV. They were keeping him entertained all the while and explaining what was going to happen every step of the way.


Julin & Gloria Esperanza

With thirty-nine years of marriage, 10 surviving children--8 of them grown and 2 still at home, and 7 grandchildren, here they are smiling for the camera. They call each other "Love."

As Julin looked as his wife with teary eyes, he told me that in their entire married life, Gloria had never had to gather and carry wood, until he broke his hip in January. He is eager to go back to work so he can provide for her and their kids.


A Massage From Ann

Ann and Yvonne (not in picture) gave everyone in the staging room, including me, a back massage. This was Julin's turn right before he was called to the operating room.

The doctors, nurses and staff at Holy Family Surgery Center are wonderful. One of them was making the rounds with guitar in tow, soothing everyone in his path.


A Loving Kiss From Gloria

As he was being taken into the operating room, Gloria and Julin exchanged a loving kiss.

Thank you for getting us to this point. We need less than $800, which I will match dollar for dollar, to make our interim goal of $10K. Yay!

As you know, the first person we will be helping is Julin. We'll be providing the hip prosthesis that will make his hip replacement surgery possible in just a few weeks.

When I first spoke with him back in April, he said it would be a miracle to have his surgery and that he had faith. Miracles do happen every day and they happen through every day circumstances--those out of the blue moments we marvel at and they happen through other people, sometimes those close to us, sometimes total strangers. That's us.

Love and light, Carla

After days of attempting to reach Julin, I got a call from his wife Gloria Esperanza this evening and I was able to give him the good news that his surgery is on for the first week in August.

I could hear the joy in his voice. He wants everyone who made a donation and, therefore, his surgery possible to know that he is happy. He sends blessings to each one of us wherever we are.

Thank you for helping me make this possible for Julin!

This initial coming together to support the poorest of the poor in Honduras is coming to an end on Monday.

We are close to meeting our interim goal of $10,000. Please continue to share the campaign page and if you haven't had a chance yet to share your love and compassion by wrapping it in a donation, please do so now. $1, $5, $10 or more will go along way when joined with other donations to make the lives of Hondurans better. Thank you!!

t minus 6 days. I reached out to Julin this morning and I'm waiting for a call back. Julin lives in a remote town with no electricity, Aldea El Carrizo in Choluteca. To reach him by phone, I have to call a friend of his on her cell phone to arrange to speak with him. She then has to go to his home and let him borrow her phone to call me. Stay tuned. I'll let you know when I've delivered to good news to Julin that his hip surgery is on!

Hmm. GoGetFunding is on UK time, so I missed my t minus 7 days post. This one makes up for that one. :-)

Tomorrow I will be calling Julin to tell him his surgery is a go! Everything is set for this surgery the first week of August. I can't wait to make this, the first call to deliver happiness and a better life to someone who's been waiting for a miracle.

Thank you backers for making this possible! #LoveWins #WeAreAllONE

Only 8 days to go before this campaign ends and it?s a bright, sunny, breezy day in Tegucigalpa.

Today, I?ve coordinated Julin?s hip replacement surgery with the surgery center?s representative. He?s confirmed that the surgery can take place the first week of August. And, I?m waiting to hear back from the supplier of the hip prostheses to ensure Julin?s prosthesis is available for that date. Yes, thanks to your help, Julin will soon have his much needed surgery!

We still need $2K to meet our interim goal. Please continue to share this campaign?s page with your friends and ask if they would help. http://bit.ly/1FMVEOB

Many blessings, Carla

It?s Saturday and we have 9 more days to go! We are close to the $3,000 mark ($6,000 with my match). We need $4K more to hit our $10K interim goal. As you go about your weekend, would you consider sharing the link to the campaign page via social media and e-mail and donating at least $1? Your helping us spread the word will help us get to our goal.

I am coordinating the scheduling of Julin?s hip replacement surgery and the purchase of the prosthesis. As soon as everything is set, I will call him with the good news--I can't wait to do so! Thank you for helping to make this possible.

I?ll keep you posted. Enjoy the rest of the day.

I'm not sure "conspiracy" is the right word, but it's a great effort, & I am happy to contribute to a cause supporting needy Honduran mothers.
