A Miracle called Meddy

UPDATE: While visiting Meddy and her Mom in Galveston, Texas, last week, it was decided to finish this campaign while looking for other options of financing. We wanted to say thank you so much for your donations, prayers and for sharing this campaign.
God bless every single one of you and if you are a personal friend of Meddy's please continue encouraging her and praying for her. Thank you so much.
ANUNCIO: Cuando visite a Meddy y a su Mami en Galveston, Texas, la semana pasada, se decidio finalizar esta campaña mientras buscamos otras opciones de ayuda y financiamiento. Queriamos agradecer inmensamente por sus donaciones, oraciones y por ayudarnos a compartir la historia de Meddy.  Dios les bendiga a cada uno de ustedes y si son amigos personales de ella, por favor continuen apoyandola y orando por ella . Muchas gracias.

Her Name is Meddy Proaño Estupiñan. She suffered an accident, together with her grandfather Galo Estupiñán , in which both received an electric shock of high voltage (13.000 V), on March 8, 2018. Her grandfather fought for his life until the end, he sadly passed away with burns of 90% of his body.

Meddy survived but she's got almost 40% of her body burned. She was transferred to the Luis Vernaza Hospital in Guayaquil, Ecuador where she remains in intensive care in the burning unit room. She was initially in an induced coma, and now she has pneumonia, among other complications. Doctors and nurses work day and night so her story doesn't end the same as to her grandpa. That's why we need your help.

The initial treatments were extremely expensive and every day in the hospital exceeds the 200 dollars in supplies and medicine. Meddy daily receives care for all the burn areas in her body with high costs involved.

She's been hospitalized for over three weeks and still unaware how much longer she can be in this situation.

The Shriners Hospital for Children in Galveston, Texas has agreed to admit Meddy and cover some cost of her care. Meddy needs to be transferred from the hospital in Ecuador to USA in a special airplane.

Our goal is to get $80.000 for Meddy, this will help to pay a portion of the account, which is expected to be higher. This will immensily help bringing Meddy to the USA to receive all the specialized treatment that she urgently needs.

Meddy is fighting a daily battle for her life, her recovery will be slow, so we ask for help. We thank you, your family and friends in advance for any contribution you can make to help cover all hospital related expenses.
