Para mí ha sido muy difícil tomar la decisión de solicitar ayuda económica, pero ante la grave situación que vivimos en mi país, de escasez de medicamentos de alto costo, he recurrido a ustedes en busca de la ayuda que tanto necesito. Estaré inmensamente agradecido con cualquier monto que pueda sumar y ayudarme a comprar poco a poco la medicina en el exterior.

”No hay problemas que no podamos solventar juntos” Gracias por tomarse un tiempo para leer y compartir mi historia. Estoy seguro que con el apoyo de todos lo puedo lograr. Saúl Galavis
Nota: La cuenta para recibir los fondos esta a nombre de mi tío Humberto Sosa quien es residente en los EEUU y me ayudará a manejar el dinero recaudado.
My name is Saul Galavis Sosa, I am Venezuelan and 30 years old. In 2010, I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. This is a chronic disease that affects the bone joints and specially the spine. When in crisis, the different joints swell alternatively, there is loss of mobility and great pain. In this state I cannot do any physical activity. I am a professional cook and run two canteens in two renown schools in the city of Valencia, Venezuela. Until October 2016 the Health Department provided me with the medicine. In 2017, and due to the health crisis in the country, I lacked the medicine for 4 months and I had a great relapse that kept me without mobility for 3 months with great pain and attacked my digestive system as well. The medicine that stops the symptoms and the progress of the disease is Adalimumab, HUMIRA DE 40 MG. from Abbott Laboratories. With the support of my parents and friends I managed to find enough quantity to last a year. At the moment , there is no more medicine in the country. To buy it abroad costs from $1200 to $1500 monthly depending on what country I may buy it and have it sent from. Neither my parents nor myself have more economic means to buy it and I have only one more month of treatment. My goal is to have a minimun of 6 months supply of my medicine, wich would alIow me to evaluate other options, while keeping my health estable.
It has been very difficult for me to make the decision to request economical help, but due to the serious crisis that we are living in my country with lack of high cost medicines, I have turned to you in search for the help that I so much need. I will be immensely grateful with any amount that may add to help me buy the medicine abroad little by little. You can also help me by sharing this link to help my story reach more people.
Thank you for taking the time to read and share my story. I am sure that with your support I can make it. There are no problems that we cannot solve together. Saúl Galavis
