BENEFITING: Corazon De Vida Foundation
HELP US RAISE FUNDS FOR BENJAMIN'S MAJOR SURGERY
Meet Benjamin, a spirited 13 year old boy who lives at the San Jose Orphanage in Tijuana along with his 7 other "brothers & sisters". We are his only family as Ben was abandoned when he was born due to his medical condition.
Ben was born with spina bifida and has been in a wheelchair his entire life. His condition has worsened due to a newly discovered renal disease and recently, he has completely lost his eyesight. Ben remains joyful and strong through the many challenges he has faced in his young life and is one of the most resilient spirits we have ever encountered. His joy and love of life in the face of advesity is inspiring.
Doctors in Tijuana recommend that he have a new bladder formed using a portion of his small intestine. The surgery will be in Tijuana at a private hospital. For more details on Benjamin's surgery, please click HERE.
WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR THE SURGERY AND POST OPERATION CARE. The surgery will cost over $13,000 and post surgery care for a full time nurse and other meds will be expensive. Help us save Ben's life by making a donation or getting this information in front of others who can make a difference. Share link http://www.crowdrise.com/helpben/ on your social media pages.
TOGETHER, WE CAN HELP BENJAMIN LEAD A MORE STABLE LIFE.
