Hi there, my name is JP and I am writing on behalf of the Oquendo family and a precious little girl named Nellie. We need your help now, more than ever and we don't have time spare. Nellie has been battling a rare form of childhood cancer called Neuroblastoma for the past 2 years.  She has undergone countless chemo treatments, surgeries, bone marrow name it, she has been through it. We have just been told by doctors that there is nothing more that can be done for her.  Conventional medical school treatments are no longer having any affect on the cancerous cells and tumors that have grown inside her tiny body.  The Oquendo family has pretty much been told that she has a very limited time left and she should be taken home and made comfortable.  The word "hospice" has been used.  You have no idea how it feels to have someone say those words to you about your 4 year old princess...and I hope you never do! But we do not give up!  We are fighters!  We are ninjas!  But even ninjas need help sometimes and this is one of those times.  There is an all natural regiment that my good friend Eric has been giving Nellie.  It is called boutiques and in many late stage cancer patients it has shown significant reduction in the size and strength of the some cases, the patients have been cured. This natural substance is not available in the US and it is not cheap.  Eric has to go into Mexico to get it and a 6 month supply cost almost $6000. All of Nellies Angels have been absolutely wonderful to our family and we appreciate every single penny that has been donated.  We know that times are tough, but we have no choice but to reach out to you for help.  If everyone could donate just $20...we could get her started on the treatment that may save her life!  Please, we can't do this without your help.  This little girl deserves way more than only 4 years on this earth.  To be blunt, they gave her a month.  Imagine how you would feel if someone told you that you only one month left with your only AMAZING child who melts the heart of anyone she meets. Skip going to the movies or going out to eat or buying that new pair of jeans and help.  WE have NO TIME TO WASTE!!! Help spread the word!
