Meet Judely ... She needs our help!

Judely immigrated to the United States from Nicaragua with her father last school year and began studying at Menlo-Atherton when she was 16 years old. She immediately dedicated herself to learning English, became involved in the school community, worked hard to earn good grades, and formed lasting bonds with her new teachers and friends. Unfortunately, when school closed for COVID, Judely collapsed while at work and found out that she had Cancer. She was hospitalized and it was discovered that she has stage 4 cancer in the liver, kidneys, adrenal glands, pancreas and lungs.

When she was diagnosed, Judely's only wish was that her mother in Nicaragua could come to be by her side. Her mother obtained a humanitarian visa and when she arrived, and they met again at the hospital, it was her best Christmas gift. Judely's parents, Bismarck and Maribel, have stayed with her in the hospital as she continues to fight this disease and have given her all of their support, love and comfort.

If her optimism, strength, humor and love could heal her, Judely would be 100% healthy by now, but after two operations and 6 chemotherapies Lucille Packard gave the devastating news that her cancer is terminal.

Judely and her parents need help paying for hospital costs, plane tickets back to Nicaragua and the hospice care she will need in her native country. Please consider supporting this M-A student and her loved ones during this difficult time. Your support will be greatly appreciated!


Conoce a Judely ... ¡Ella necesita de nuestra ayuda!

Judely emigró de Nicaragua a los Estados Unidos con su padre el año pasado y comenzó a estudiar en Menlo-Atherton cuando tenía 16 años. Ella se dedicó inmediatamente a aprender inglés, se involucró en la comunidad escolar, trabajó duro para obtener buenas calificaciones y formó vínculos duraderos con sus nuevos maestros y amigos. Desafortunadamente, cuando la escuela cerró por COVID, Judely se desmayó en el trabajo, estuvo internada y descubrieron que tiene cáncer etapa 4 en el hígado, riñones, las glándula suprarrenales, pancreas y pulmones.

Cuando fue diagnosticada, Judely solo pidió un deseo que su Madre en Nicaragua pudiera venir a estar a su lado. Su madre obtuvo una visa humanitaria y cuando llegó su madre se reencontraron en el hospital, fue su mejor regalo de Navidad. Sus padres, Bismarck y Maribel, se han quedado con ella en el hospital mientras ella continúa luchando contra esta enfermedad y le han brindado todo su apoyo, amor y consuelo.

Si el optimismo, la fuerza, el humor y el amor pudieran curarla, Judely ya estaría 100% sana, pero después de dos operaciones y 8 quimioterapias Lucille Packard dio la devastadora noticia de que su cáncer es terminal.

Judely y sus padres necesitan ayuda para pagar los costos de hospital, pasajes de regreso a Nicaragua y el cuidado de hospicio que necesitará en su país natal. Por favor considera y apoya a esta estudiante de M-A y a sus seres queridos durante este momento tan difícil.  ¡Tu apoyo será sumamente agradecido!
