Potira's Medical Fund

TO OUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, FRIENDS OF FRIENDS AND WHO ELSE THIS SOLIDARITY CHAIN ​​CAN REACH. I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU MY COUSIN'S SITUATION, POTIRA CASTAMAN DO NASCIMENTO (12 YEARS OF AGE) IS GOING THROUGH.  POTIRA WAS DIAGNOSED WITH STEVENS JOHNSON'S SYNDROME, A RARE AND VERY AGGRESSIVE DISEASE.
DUE TO HER SERIOUS CONDITION SHE WAS TRANSFERRED TO A PEDIATRIC ICU OF JORGE VALENTE HOSPITAL IN SALVADOR / BAHIA, PRIVATE HOSPITAL IN BRAZIL. AS WE COULDN'D GET VACANCY IN A PUBLIC HOSPITAL. I AM HERE KINDLY ASKING FOR HELP TO COVER THE EXPENSES OF INTERNATION, MEDICINE AND AMBULANCE AIRPLANE THAT DUE TO THE URGENCY SHE NEEDED TO BE TRANSFERRED FROM ILHEUS (WHERE SHE LIVES) TO SALVADOR TO RECEIVE APPROPRIATE TREATMENT.  UP TO NOW THE BILL HAS ALREADY REACHED MORE THAN AU$ 60,000 AND THE FORECAST IS THAT SHE WILL NEED TO STAY IN THE HOSPITAL FOR ANOTHER 3 TO 4 WEEKS . GREATLY  WITH THE HELP OF A FAMILY FRIEND, YESTERDAY 19 AUGUST, SHE WAS TRANSFERED TO ANOTHER HOSPITAL,  SANTA ISABEL HOSPITAL, WHERE MOST OF THE EXPENSES WILL BE FUNDED BY THE GOVERNMENT. SO THE EXPENSES FROM NOW ON SHOULD BE SMALLER. BUT WE STILL NEED HELP TO COVER THE EXPENSES UP TO NOW.

PRAYERS AND POSITIVE THINKING ARE A GREAT WAY TO HELP ON POTIRA'S RECOVERY. BUT ANY FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION WILL BE VERY IMPORTANT SO POTIRA CAN RECEIVE APPROPRIATE TREATMENT. 

THANK YOU SO MUCH, TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER.

GRATITUDE.
