Laly's Surgery/Cirugía de Widallys

Para español, por favor vaya al final del documento.

Hello friends,

I come to you with sad news. Some of you may not know that our beloved Laly will have to undergo bilateral mastectomy (removal of both breasts) on September 26th because she was found to have multiple pre-cancerous lesions. This is NOT an elective procedure because she is at high risk. In addition, she will have to undergo another major surgery in a few months to reconstruct her breasts. She has already had multiple sonograms, MRIs, and biopsies, as well as doctors' visits and consultations with specialists. In addition, because of the extensive surgery, she will not be able to work for 6-8 weeks with loss of salary during that time. She has to fly family from Puerto Rico to have them care for her during her recovery, so the expenses keep on piling up. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated, so no amount is too small. As you can see, this is an urgent matter, due to the brevity of time, and your assistance will help to cover some of the immediate expenses. If you're not able to contribute financially, your prayers are needed and welcome. We thank you for your generosity from the bottom of our hearts.

Hola,

Lamento acercarme a ustedes con malas noticias: nuestra querida Widallys tendrá que ser sometida a una mastectomia bilateral (le removerán ambos senos) el 26 de septiembre debido a que le encontraron lesiones pre-cancerosas. Esto no es un procedimiento electivo ya que su condición es de alto riesgo. También tendrá que someterse a otra cirugía en varios meses para reconstruir sus senos. Hasta ahora le han hecho varios sonogramas, MRIs y biopsias, además de visitas médicas y consultas con especialistas. Adicionalmente, debido a lo extenso de la cirugía, ella tendrá que traer a su familia de Puerto Rico para que la cuide durante su periodo de convalecencia y estará fuera del trabajo de 6 a 8 semanas sin sueldo. Por estas razones solicitamos por este medio que la ayuden a sufragar algunos de los gastos médicos inmediatos. Esto es un asunto urgente debido a que la fecha está a solo unos días. Si no puede contribuir financieramente, esperamos poder contar con sus oraciones. De antemano agradecemos su generosidad desde lo más profundo de nuestros corazones.
