Hi Brendan,

Thank you so, so much for your generous donation to La 72. It was unexpected and very much appreciated: I didn't know Shannon forwarded you the link to my page, but I'm glad she did.

Hi Juanita,


Thank you so much for your donation to my fundraiser for La 72.

This past Sunday, I spent the morning in a Mexican hopsital with a woman named Elena, who comes from Honduras. She left her two children behind and, with her brother, walked through most of Guatemala to arrive in southern Mexico. She arrived severely dishydrated, and with a severe allergic reaction on nearly all of her skin. She told me that she hadn't eaten in four days, and when I tried to give her liquid electrolytes she immediately threw them up. A day passed, but her condition improve at all, so Sunday morning I asked her if she was willing to go to the hospital. She said yes, and we waited several hours in the emergency room together before she was seen by a doctor, who gave her a mysterious injection and a list of prescriptions to pick up at the hospital's pharmacy.

The pharmacy, however, was out of all the medicines the doctor had prescribed, so after I dropped her off at the house I went with Fray Tomas, the director of La 72, to buy the medicines at the pharmacy in town. They would have been free at the hospital, but none were in stock, so Tomas paid for them himself. The next morning, after a day of taking the medications, Elena came to tell me that she had eaten a huge dinner and slept for the first time in days. It was honestly one of the happiest moments of my life--I know that sounds like hyperbole, but it's not.

Anyway, your $100 covers the cost of all her prescriptions, times twenty. A few dollars goes a long way in pesos--so thank you again. It means a lot to me, and to everyone in this house.

All the very best to you, and here's hoping we meet again soon.
