HELP INGRID...AYUDA A INGRID

NO ES CUESTION DE SUERTE

(FOR ENGLISH, SCROLL DOWN)

Hola a todos,

No me deja de asombrar que a pesar de los problemas que me rodean, soy dichoso. Tengo salud, tengo trabajo y una familia. Llamemosle suerte o llamemosle Bendicion, pero el caso es que tengo mucho que agradecer. Desafortunadamente, no todos podemos decir lo mismo. Hace poco, recibi la triste noticia de que Ingrid Beltran, una niña de 11 años e hija de una empleada de un familiar, le diagnosticaron cancer en su pierna derecha. Para colmo, despues de varios diagnosticos, deberan amputarle su piernita esta semana para intentar salvarle la vida. No tengo el gusto de conocer a Ingrid pero no quiero ni pensar lo que ella, al igual que su familia, estan viviendo. La familia de Ingrid no goza de un “colchon” economico para soportar este golpe tan duro y su madre ha tenido que dejar su empleo para poderla atender. Sus finanzas han sido afectadas y a pesar de que los costos mayores de su tratamiento estan siendo cubiertos, simplemente, no es suficiente. Como ya se podran imaginar, les escribo hoy para pedirles un donativo que quizas ayude a la familia de Ingrid mitigar los gastos de dia a dia.  Rara vez me animo a a solicitar ayuda de esta manera asi es que creanme, si lo escribo, es por que hay una gran necesidad. El caso de Ingrid ha tocado mi corazon y espero que al tuyo tambien. Ayudar no es cuestion de suerte, es cuestion de voluntad. Si te consideras con suerte o Bendecido/a, por favor, ayuda. Gracias.

Att.

A MATTER OF WILL 

Hi everyone,

It never fails to amaze me that despite the problems that surround my daily life, I've got it good. I'm healthy, I work and i have a family.  Call it luck or call it a Blessing but I have a lot to be grateful for. Unfortunately, not everyone can say the same. Recently, I received the unfortunate news that an 11 year-old girl named Ingrid Beltran, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in her right leg.  To make matters worse, after several professional opinions, it has been determined the leg will have to be amputated this week in order to save her life.  To add to the tragedy, she is not a candidate for a prosthesis. While I've never met Ingrid, I can't begin to imagine what she, as well as her family, are going through. I can tell you that Ingrid's family doesn't have the benefit of a safety net to help them through such a difficult time and her mother has been forced to stop working to be in her care.  Her family's finances have been deeply affected and although some of the major costs are being covered in her treatment, it's not enough. Her mother has been a long-time employee of an aunt of mine, and as you might expect, she is helping her wherever she can, but again, it's not enough and it looks like Ingrid is in for a long fight. As you also might expect, I'm writing to you today asking if you can find it in your heart to help Ingrid with her finances and make a donation today. I rarely, if ever, do this sort of thing so believe me, if I'm posting it, it is because there is a great need. I've set a modest goal of $5,000 and hopefully, you can help Ingrid reach it, or go far beyond it. This story has touched my heart as I hope it will touch yours. Helping is not a matter of luck, but a matter of will. If you consider yourself lucky, spread the love and please donate whatever you can afford. Thanks.

Sincerely,

Juan Jose Campos
