My name is Oscar Torres. I'm a filmmaker in Los Angeles, California. A woman from Guatemala reached out to me through a friend because her son's life is in danger unless a surgery is done. I jumped on the phone with her and upon hearing her shedding tears, I decided to help them. The boy's name is Jonathan. This is their situation...
Jonathan lives in Guatemala with his mom whos is a teacher. He has fought and beaten some pretty aweful illnesses including: hidrocefalia, congenital arachnoid cysts, severe cerebral edema and the danndy walker syndrome. He’s had 7 surgeries so far and he’s only 9 years old.
In march, 2017 he was diagnosed with stage 2 anaplatic astrocytoma (brain tumor). He needs surgery now, in June, for a chance to live, which can only be performed in the U.S.A.
It costs $80,000 dollars. Being a low income family, there's no way they could ever come up with this kind of money.
Jonathan has fought many battles and won them all. But he can’t face this one alone. He needs us! Let’s help him win this last one!
Please donate for his life saving surgery. Every little bit helps!
