Help Jechu Dance Again!

After diabetes diagnosis, my dear Mexican grandmother Jechu started having problems to walk. Several times she said that she felt her legs 'asleep' and would not respond. This complain was followed (weeks after) by an unbearable pain. After months of medical research, the doctors in Mexico City have found a critical problem in Jechu's vertebral column. She needs immediate operation in which they will reconstruct her vertebral column. The doctors are positive that this operation will end her tremendous pain (now she is using morfine pads) and it will make her able to walk again!

Since it is a very expensive operation and Jechu does not have any medical insurance to cover the costs, our family has invested all the savings and friend's lendings to Jechu's health. However we still lack €5500,- euro to complete the payment for the operation. We need to get this money within ONE MONTH! By obtaining this funds, Jechu can be operated immediately. The doctors are positive that after the operation, my grandma will have 'Quality of Life' again. 

Your help is highly appreciated! 

Next week I will be traveling to Mexico to support Jechu in avery way I can and also to give my support to the victims of the last earthquake.

Receive my most sincere gratitude for helping us funding jechu's operation!

God bless you always, always!

Love and blessings,
