Those who have had the pleasure to know Yaudy know what a sweet, caring and generous person she is. Yaudy comes from a poor rural family in Arenal, Costa Rica and has always helped support them by working full time in Tamarindo. She puts her family first, and her friends second, and she always thinks of others before herself. However for just this once, Yaudy needs to come first. At only 24 years old, she has been diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer which has Metasised into her Lymph system. She needs surgery ASAP to remove her Thyroid and Lymph nodes in her neck before it spreads through her body. This surgery is then followed by Radioactive iodine treatment. The Costa Rican health care system has a 1-2 year wait for this kind of operation & treatment, a wait time that could cost her her life. The only other option is for a operation at a private clinic, which costs $20,000. Half of the money ($10,000) has already been pledged by her boyfriend of 5 years (Jarryd) and his mother (Diane), but we still need help to cover the rest. Please show Yaudy the love and support she needs and help her survive this difficult time in her life. Anything helps to reach our goal, and to get her the care she needs and deserves.
