Cancer / Tumor on His Neck. Sergio Needs Your Help to Live.
Organized by: Mercedes Lorenzo
Hi, my name is Mercedes, Lorenzo. I just arrived from a volunteer trip in the Dominican Republic. Dominicans are very good people, happy, caring and lovable. After this trip, I decided to open my won non-profit organization to help people that need my help around the world. During my time there I encounter a very unfortunate situation with a 20 years old adolescent named Sergio. Sergio has a very rare neck cancer that is growing like a balloon. His cancer is shaped like a tumor and his family doesn’t know what else to do.
I have always being fascinated with non-profit organizations and helping others. Sergio desperately needs our help. His mother is a single mom and has 4 children. She works, but Sergio’s monthly medication alone is over twice her monthly salary. She does have medical insurance, but the insurance dropped her and will not cover his costs. Friends and family has already depleted all their resources and they can no longer support the expenses of this situation. One study that was done on Sergio costed the family $23k Dominican pesos which are around US $520. That is about 4 months of pay for average Dominican workers.
A specialist told the family that it will probably take from $75,000 to $100,000 dollars in expenses to completely cure Sergio’s disease. He might have to be transported to the United Stated to complete his treatment and surgery. Unfortunately, Sergio will die if we all don’t help with this cause. There is no way his family can come up with this amount of money. Her mother is even about to get fire from her job because she is taking too much time off to care for her son.
Please I ask all of you to donate anything you can; even a small amount can make a huge difference if we all unite for this cause. I wish you a great day/night, my family and I keep in contact with his family daily and pray every day for Sergio’s well-being.
