Emergency Surgery for Sandro

Our dear friend Sandro Canovas needs emergency surgery. 

Sandro has been in pain for six weeks. And was diagnosed with Urethral Stenosis.
He was in Mexico City last week for his mother's funeral. When he went to his urologist, the doctor wanted to operate the next day. Sandro did not have the money for the surgery. 

We only need to raise $7,000.

Sandro can be seen and treated by his doctor next week.

Sandro is a Marfa treasure, a beloved community member.

Let's all come together to help him please.

( Urethral stricture) 
A suprapubic urinary catheter will be placed to drain the urinary tract, since the urethra is obstructed. In a second surgical stage. An endoscopic internal urethrotomy must be done to unblock the urethra

These two chart show how Sandro's condition is worsening.

Thank You Friends ~ Gracias
