De antemano muchísimas gracias, que Dios bendiga cada rincón de sus hogares y a cada uno de sus familiares y amigos. A veces pensamos que algo pequeño no hace la diferencia, que una gota de agua es insignificante en la inmensidad del mar, pero el mar sería menos sin esa gota.
Hi! My name is Daniel Alejandro Carvallo Garcia. I am 20 years old and I am currently majoring in Economics at the Universidad de Carabobo in Valencia, Venezuela. On March 7th I had an MRI done after a neurological exploration showed the presence of a Space-occupying Lesion on the posterior area of my cranial floor (the skull’s base). Thanks to the support of my relatives, I was hospitalized at the Medical School Center ‘La Trinidad’ in Caracas. Here, the doctors performed a stereotactic biopsy in which a grade 3 Anaplastic Astrocytoma, which in layman’s terms is a particular type of brain tumor (glioma).
Knowing this, I once again address myself to you: friends, relatives, acquaintances and whoever out there willing to give me a hand to cover the large costs of the procedures that I will have to undergo in the following weeks. On March 25th due to a medical complication, I had a ventriculoperitoneal shunt implanted to relieve the pressure in my brain. Then, on April 2nd I was seen by an oncologist who prescribed approximately 30 sessions of radio and chemotherapy sessions (simultaneously) during the next six (6) weeks. The support I am requesting now is to afford the chemo.
We are aware of the precarious situation that Venezuela is in, but it is because of this that we reach out to you now. We just cannot afford the myriad of fees that have already come our way and that will continue to come in the foreseeable future. I once heard that kites only take flight when the wind blows against them. Each one of these hurdles is there to remind us what we are made of.
The amount that we are trying to collect represents the fees of the doctors involved in the different medical interventions, as well as the OR, medicine, and hospitalization charges.
I thank you beforehand for taking the time to read this text and for any contribution within your means. May God bless every corner of your homes, as well as your relatives and friends. At times we think that a small act might not make a difference, that a single drop of water is negligible with respect to the immensity of a sea. However, the sea would be less without that single drop.
