My name is Shirley Sanchez.  I am a single mom of a beautiful 11 years old girl named Mia.  She is a wonderful, energetic and kind little girl.  She enjoys time with her family and her friends at Saint Veronica’s school in Virginia.   Very recently she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.  Currently, the doctors are saying that she will require insulin for a lifetime.  As a woman of faith, I am hoping for a miracle.  Currently, Mia is in a state of “honeymoon” which means that her pancreas still has some good cells and her immune system is temporarily not bothering her beta cells.  Time is of the essence.  Currently, she only requires insulin at night.   I have a light of hope, thanks to the scientists at Sanoviv Medical Institute.  They are working with stem cells and recycling of cells.  Although they don’t normally work with children, they are willing to accept Mia, but I need to act quickly as the honeymoon stage can stop anytime.   Mia needs immediate attention at Sanoviv.  This will include a 4-day Integrative Physical, full analysis, and infusions including stem cells and expos ones.  The shortfall in the cost of the full treatment in the first stage is $12,400.   I have checked availability, and I have cleared an opening for her to come as soon as possible. As a mother, I will do anything necessary to help my girl.  Any contribution, no matter how big or small will help.  Please consider contributing and PLEASE forward to all of your friends, family, church members, etc.  Together we can do this.   Español: Soy Shirley Sanchez, madre soltera de una hija maravillosa de 11 años llamada Mia. Ella es muy energetica, activa y amable con la gente que la rodea. Disfruta el tiempo con sus amigas en la escuela St. Veronica en Virginia, juega basketball en su temporada, disfruta mucho la familia, con sus primos y amistades que crea en cada momento. Recientemente fue diagnosticada con Diabetes Tipo 1, actualmente los doctores dicen que requerirá insulina por toda su vida. Como mujer de fé, tengo esperanza de un milagro. Mia se encuentra en un estado de "Luna de Miel" (Honeymoon) lo que significa que su pancreas aun tiene reserva de Celulas Buenas y que sus sistema Inmunologico no lo esta atacando temporalmente. El tiempo es esencial para poder actuar y no solo prolongar su estado de "honeymoon" pero un milagro mas grande. Por ahora ella solo usa insulina a la hora de dormir. Tengo una luz de esperanza gracias a los Cientificos de SANOVIV Medical Institute que estan trabajando con Celulas Madre y reciclando celulas, aunque actualmente no trabajan con niños, estan dispuestos a aceptar a Mia pero necesito actuar rapidamente ya que el estado de "honeymoon" puede terminar en cualquier momento. Mia necesita atencion inmediata en SANOVIV, esto incluirá un análisis integral fisico de 4 dias e infusiones de Celulas Madre. El deficit en el costo del tratamiento en su Primera fase es de $12,400. Se ha verificado la disponibilidad y se ha aperturando una vacante y necesita llegar lo mas pronto posible . Como madre haré absolutamente todo lo necesario para ayudar a mi niña. Cualquier contribucion no importa cuán grande o pequeño sea, ayudará. Porfavor considera contribuir por Mia y porfavor comparte con amistades, Familia, miembros de tu Iglesia,  estoy completamente segura que TODOS juntos podemos hacerlo. Dios los Bendiga.

July 10th, 2018 the day Mia was diagnosed with T1D. The worse nightmare and night I ever felt knowing that my Healthy and Happy girl was facing a critical situation high sky Blood Sugar in the Intensive Care at Children Hospital of Fairfax.

I thought I was losing her, the most terrifying night I passed as Mom and I cannot imaging my daughter's body and mind, she was totally weak and lost in her tiny body 12 more pounds plus a few more pouds in the 3 days of hospitalization.

"It's not your fault Shirley" Doctors, people and myself have to repeat it over and over. This Type 1 Diabetes is a result of "unknown" factors according to Science in Eastern Medicine, but there is so much more than that answer. I'm grateful for the Hospital who stabilize my daughter, I am thankful that I awake to a whole totally different reality that I want for my daughter. I want her to grow, to persist, to impact, to research, to love, to ask questions, to find answers, to meet people, I want it to cure her.

It was a year of LOVE, learning experiences, awaking feelings, awaking soul, get rich information about how our mind is totally connected to our soul and heart, we got to experience the healing in a way that we never imaging lots of people are seeking by CONNECTING with oneself, love oneself, forgive oneself. Healing way more mindful than just taking the insulin. BY doing that we heal and we help family and people to heal as well.

We did as a Community something incredible, I never felt alone, even though we were in this journey My daughter, myself and (God + Community) as my husband that I don't have. I can't thank you enough for being my support system when at some point I was hopeless.

Mia grew up in 1 year beautifully, her spirituality, her confidence, her social life, her love for herself, acceptance, she totally is my hero. Its not easy to deal with niddles every single day, at any time of food intake average (5 times a day) to poke herself to monitor and/or correct her blood sugar injecting insulin. plus her night routine. Her total average amount of pokes is 7 a day.

She is my absolutely motor to live life in the state of grateful, to serve more more, to value what truly matters.

We are done with the treatment at SANOVIV and Stem Cells, her hemoglobin still high and her Peptice D decreased. Stem Cells were a bless and we only add extra help to the current insulin intake with the hope of Regeneration of her Beta Cells. I am strong in my faith, as a Human, I feel frustrated, As a Mom of Mia I feel BLESS and I can lay in my bed thinking how fragile our lives are. In a blinkof an eye - in less time than it takes to inhale- everything can change. Everything.

Today, I woke up after a terrible night of hopeless, I ready an entire book in a night, I prayed for inner peace, I love myself and accept that life is giving us exactly what we need to keep going, I got a clear message " It will all make sense in the End" ❤

I want to thank you every single one of you for being my Support System (I meant you Community as the Husband that I don't have) went I truly really need it. God has his ways, I am awake, I'm bless, I am Shirley a mother of wonderful girl, a Mom that will never give up.

This is not the end, thanks to the insulin my daughter is alive, thanks to the food and eat mindfully our lives are bless, thanks to people like you, our lives will have abundance of joy.

1 year went through so much to be thankful. I only have one more thing to ask you with my heart in my arms : "We chose to live, Healthy and Happy"
please repeat with me and pray as much as you can for Mia.
God / Universe with your immense love and power to heal, use your Angels to always protect Mia. Love amends.

Just by sending the energy of LOVE we can heal. I believe in LOVE. And for us GOD is LOVE.

I believe in miracles and you can help me with that, please pray with me. I know in my heart Mia is heal, Mia is Healthy, Mia heal all of us by carring this T1D. Please help to create this miracle for MIA.

I will never stop believing in.
I believe Mia will continue stable, using her insulin, until the day comes where she not longer will need to depend of that.

Mia will start her 7th grade with her power back, it was challenging year of adjustments, but now you got to see her and talk to her, she is becoming our natural healer. We only need to nurture her with positive thoughts, positive challenges, positive friends and block completely negative people and negative thoughts.

I will keep active this Gofundme page so my dreamer daughter would love to see this one day.

I will continue have updates in her Facebook Page @Mia The Warrior - Child Of God.

I will get my certification by September as Diabetes Educator. Also continue working in a Catholic School as Co- Director of an amazing After Program. I certified as Yoga Teacher for Children, also I will finish my certification as Energy Medicine by the end of Summer. I will continue with my path of Wellness and with Open minded knowing more amazing people who can help me to spread the word of HOPE and Help people in bleak moments. There is too much to do, there too many people to heal, we have to LOVE more. I believe in the power of Intention, whether how to get to the root of Type one Diabetes or How to Play Basketball with T1D in a cool way. There is always a way.

Health and Happiness for all,

Shirley Sanchez
Mia's Mom

Please pray for Mia and her Pancreas absorbs the Stem Cells and heal, regenerate and maintain the level of Peptice C high, Beta Cells and most importantly her INSULINE works again and regenerate as a normal and perfect, just the way God create his Children.
