In keeping with Dianny’s community leadership and ambition, she was elected to represent Belioness as a member of their board in 2016 as Area Representative, and later in the year as a member of the Belize Tourism Industry Association’s Caye Caulker Chapter. In January 2017, having demonstrated her passionate and dedicated attitude, Dianny was re-elected to the Belioness board as Vice-Chair.
On Friday June 23rd, while sleeping, Dianny suffered a massive stroke that has left half of her body paralyzed. She was urgently transferred to Chetumal, Mexico where she has been receiving medical care but due to her critical condition, she will be transferred to a hospital in Merida, Mexico for more advanced treatment. Here, she has been diagnosed with a hemorrhage in her brain due to a malformation of her veins and arteries, which caused the bleeding and stroke. She now requires brain surgery that will cost over $15,000 US dollars. This does not include the cost of medical treatment she has already received or the additional medical expenses after the surgery while she stays in hospital in order for her to fully recover.
As a single mother, it is impossible for Dianny to cover her medical expenses. She needs your help.
As Chairperson of the Belize Lionfish Jewelry Group, and on behalf of its other members, we are requesting your assistance in helping to cover these medical expenses so that she is able to receive surgery as soon as possible. Please help us by donating whatever you can to help cover these medical expenses and allow her to fully recover and get back to her son, family and extended family, Belize Lionfish Jewelry Group.
We have already received a pledge from a generous anonymous donor – the donor will match what you raise up to $5,000 US dollars.
Please consider donating to this extremely worthy cause.
