ARDS help

Our father Santiago was affected by H1N1 virus which was mistakenly diagnosed as a bronquitis. He battled and beated the virus by himself but it left him with a life threatening condition provoked by  Pheneumonia. Our warrior is now suffering from ARDS ( Acute Respiratory Distress) This condition prevents enough oxygen from getting to the lungs and into the blood.
The next step to save his life is a Treatment called ECMO (extra corporeal membrane oxygenation)  We are reaching our friends and family because we ran out of financial resources since we already have obligations for the ICU here in Ecuador. Thanks for your support we are trying to transport him to Colombia to Bucaramanga ; where we found the ECMO specialists in Latin America  THANK YOU & GOD BLESS!
Ayúdenme a salvar a mi papá Santiago, está combatiendo Distress respiratorio debido al virus H1N1, el lo combatió solito ya que el virus fué  confundido con bronquitis... el resultado ha sido neumonía e insuficiencia respiratoria severa; el siguiente paso para salvarle la vida es un tratamiento que se llama ECMO ( es una membrana extra corporal que le provee oxigenación a sus pulmones) Tenemos obligaciones pendientes por la Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos en el Ecuador y quisiéramos contar con su ayuda para llevarlo a  Colombia Bucaramanga en dónde encontramos el centro  especializado en este procedimiento pulmonar.Gracias infinitas por su apoyo! Que Dios los bendiga!
