Emmanuel was born in the state of Guerrero in Mexico. His parents, Lucio and Antonia, worked the land for a living. One day when he was just a toddler, Emmanuel began having headaches and soon afterwards stopped walking and talking. His parents had no idea what was happening to their son and began to search for answers. When Emmanuel was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a cancerous tumor in his brain, they also found out that Emmanuel’s treatment would require an operation and subsequent hospitalization, which they could not afford. Fortunately, they found Honoree organization Casa de la Amistad, a program providing free cancer treatment for underprivileged children in Mexico. Thanks to Casa de la Amistad, Emmanuel was able to receive the treatment he needed and today is cancer free.
