Mariga's Odyssey with Cancer

My Niece has been diagnosed with Triple negative breast cancer.  This comes as a shock to our whole family, as Mariga is such a healthy and active 27 year old. She is far too young and full of life to be burdened with the enormous out of pocket costs she will incur. Health care in Mexico is excellent, IF you can afford it. Many doctors do not accept the government insurance. Similar to us seeking an Out Of Network Doctor, all of her treatment costs will be paid for by the family.  We are at the very beginning of this long journey, but we are hopeful. Between pathology, chemo and radiation, new doctor visits and follow up visits, labwork, medicines and the daily cost of living and food, we are looking at almost half a million pesos in care. Thankfully, the dollar is strong and any contributions you make will go so much farther.  Please help us to lift some of the financial burden off of my incredible niece, Mariga and her partner through all of this, Gerardo.
