Help Mariel receive a life changing surgery

Hello my name is Valentina, I’m asking for donations in the name of my sweet friend Mariel González Pierres. In May of 2019, Mariel was diagnosed with Uterine Myomatosis. She works as an Interior Designer in Maracaibo, Venezuela; a city widely affected by this crisis. She has always been very hardworking, loves to exercise and enjoy time spent with those she loves. Her life changed when she received this devastating diagnosis. Since the day she was diagnosed, her doctors recommended she carry out with the operation as soon as possible, due to the severity of the risks of postponing. However, due to Venezuela’s socioeconomic and political crisis, she does not have the monetary resources to make it happen. 

Uterine Myomatosis are benign cysts that grow in the uterus and can occupy the entire uterus, with some, growing to fill the entirety of the uterus itself. This brings obvious complications when considering pregnancy, but also has the potential to cause damage to the nearest organs such as the bladder and intestines. Already, Mariel has 4 large fibroids, which are beginning to impede her ability to function outside of immense abdominal pain. They continue to grow rapidly, making her daily life a painful task.

Each day she goes without having this surgery, the likelihood of the full removal of her uterus rises exponentially, taking away her chance of one day having children. Mariel wants to move on and have a normal healthy life, without pain or limitations, with the possibility of fulfillment in becoming a mother. Any donations, whether big or small are a blessing and will make all of the difference in the projection of her life. The money raised will be used for pre and post- operative medical expenses such as exams, medications and food.
Thank you for all your help ❤️
