Lilian has suffered one setback after another, but we know that she can get through this recovery – with your help.
My sister Lilian Aguilar has lived an exceptionally healthy life, which makes what has happened over the last year all the more devastating for our family. Her health began to deteriorate in 2018, her digestive system preventing her from eating anything for weeks, the pain becoming so severe that she ended up in the ER in October. It turned out that she was suffering from extreme abdominal inflammation, and at her lowest point, anxiety and depression overcame her. On February 7th, she finally received a diagnosis: she had a helicobacter pylori bacterial infection in her stomach, something that had festered since childhood but only fully developed recently. If left untreated, this infection can lead to stomach cancer and other illnesses, and as if that weren’t enough for her to bear, she slipped and fell on February 9th, breaking both her ankles.
Lilian is, to say the least, devastated. She was back in the emergency room just two days after learning what had ailed her, and she underwent surgery, transferring into a rehabilitation center on February 13th.
Now, of course, we are just waiting to see what happens. She is getting the help that she needs, but her troubles are far from over. Employed as a personal trainer, she will be out of work for a long time and ineligible for either unemployment benefits or government assistance. In the months ahead, she will need 24/7 assistance, in-home nursing, a wheelchair, a shower seat, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and a lot of time for her to learn how to walk again – all of which cost money that Lilian simply doesn’t have.
Help Lilian get back on her feet!
We are looking to you, friends, for any support that you can lend us. Our goal is to raise at least $15,000 through this campaign so that we can point Lilian toward a full recovery. We are confident that she will come out of these challenges stronger, healthier, and more capable than ever before, but right now our focus is solely on helping her however we can. We appreciate any support you can offer!
