Help for my cousin and nephew

**If you prefer PayPal send your donation to [email redacted] as friends and family** Family is the most important. My family is in need and I am putting this page together to help, drawing resources from the abundance of the universe and counting on my friends and community for support. My cousin Yudy is going through a very very tough time in her life. Her son Martin has been dealing with a medical condition that puts him in the hospital constantly. He suffers from urinary infections to the point where urine retraces back into his kidneys and at age 3 he has to go through traumatic and painful catheter procedures, hospital stays and aggressive antibiotic treatment. He is again in the hospital with a an antibiotic resistant infection, battling fevers and at times seizures from the high fevers. At this time, my cousin is also going through a separation from the child's father and is facing a very difficult financial situation. Half of the reason why this baby has had to suffer so much is because she does not make enough money to qualify for better medical care for her child. She supports herself, her mom and brother, and now also her two children, all by herself. She is a professional social worker who has dedicated her career to work with the most impoverished children of Bogota, to help them get off drugs and the streets, but social work doesn't pay well enough in a country like Colombia. Professional outlets are well fought over and despite her many attempts and qualifications she hasn't been able to get a raise or better job.  I am resorting to you, friends of the world, to help me and my family. Martin might have to have a surgery soon to perhaps cease these infections but the surgery is costly and she has to pay out of pocket. In truth, she doesn't have the money. There is nothing more painful than to watch your own child in medical distress and not have any resources to bring him health.  Please help in donating any amount, she is an amazing human, trying to be the best mom and woman she can be, but she needs help right now.
