For those who don't know her, when Lorella was two-years-old, a car pinned her against a wall, causing her to have her right leg amputated. Her parents decided to bring her to the United States from Peru following her amputation so that she could receive medical treatment. Their decision to leave Peru was also driven by the belief that the U.S. would be a place where their daughter’s disability would not define what she could and could not do.
In many ways, this accident gave the United States the biggest gift: one of the fiercest advocates for a just & fair immigration system. Without Lorella, we would have not achieved DACA & DAPA. It's time to make that gift we received come full circle and pay it forward by helping her raise money to finally get a new leg so she can embark upon her journey to walk again!
We have found a donor who is willing to match the remaining $10,000 Lorella needs if we raise $10,000. If each of us chip in what we can we can make this happen!
