Help Martin to Recover from GBS

Hi, my name is Brenda I Machado, I am from Texas and I am looking to help an old friend from Mexico. Due this I would like to ask for your help. My friend, Andrea, and her family because they are going through a delicate situation. Andrea's father was attacked by the Guillain-Barré Syndrome desease,  which weakened his nervous, the respiratory and the digestive system, so he is maintained in intensive therapy at the Hidalgo Hospital in Aguascalientes, Mexico , from January 2, 2018; Mr. Martín Enríquez is totally paralyzed with artificial respiration, the doctors have not given a diagnosis/prognosis of improvement.

Guillain-Barré syndrome is a serious health problem that occurs when the body's defense system (immune system) attacks part of the nervous system by mistake. This leads to nerve inflammation that causes muscle weakness or paralysis and other symptoms.

Currently the family does not have insurance to cover medical costs, so these have become quite expensive. Family and close friends have supported Andrea, however this has not been enough since there is no recovery date. What is collected will be for recovery and hospital expenses. As the Hospital where Martin is hospitalized has a public bank account,  I will transfer directly the money to her bank account so she will able to do the proper payments.

We thank you in advance for your support for this cause. For any questions or more information, you can contact Andrea in her email: [email redacted]
Solicito la ayuda de todos ustedes, porque me gustaría ayudar a mi amiga Andrea y su familia que están pasando por una situación delicada, el papá de Andrea fue atacado por el Síndrome Guillain-Barré el cual le debilitó el sistema nervioso, respiratorio y digestivo por lo que se mantiene en terapia intensiva en el Hospital Hidalgo de Aguascalientes, México, desde el 2 de enero del 2018; el señor Martín Enríquez se encuentra totalmente paralizado con respiración artificial, los médicos no han dado un diagnóstico/pronóstico de mejora. 

El Síndrome de Guillain-Barré  es un problema de salud grave que ocurre cuando el sistema de defensa del cuerpo (sistema inmunitario) ataca parte del sistema nervioso por error. Esto lleva a que se presente inflamación de nervios que ocasiona debilidad muscular o parálisis y otros síntomas.

Actualmente la familia no cuenta con un seguro que cubra los gastos médicos,  por lo que estos se han incrmentado bastante. Familires cercanos y conocidos han apoyado a Andrea, sin embargo esto no ha sido suficiente ya que no se cuenta con fecha de recuperación. Lo que se recaude será para la recuperación y gastos hospitalarios. 

Agradecemos de antemano su apoyo para esta causa. Cualquier duda pueden contactar a Andrea en su correo: [email redacted]
