Perla's fight against Cancer

Perla is a 13 year old girl who is an amazing friend,dancer and  an honor roll student.
She was recently diagnosed with Cancer.
She started feeling sick a little before Christmas and doctors thought it was the flu and later said it was pneumonia... Her symptoms were not improving, so her mom took her back to the hospital were they did some more testing because they realized she was loosing too much weight. The reults ... CANCER!
A rare type of cancer that most often occurs in and around the bones and usually attacks teenagers, the cancer is in her bones and around one of her lungs, ribs and really close to her heart. She had her first chemotherapy today, but she has a long ways to go.
Her family of 6 depends on her Dad's income, and Perla needs her dad by her side.
We are hopig to get that load off her Dad's shoulders so he can focus on Perla's recovery.
We are also planning other events to raise more funds for the family, you can follow our facebook page Orgullo Latino (dance group to whom Perla belongs), we will be posting all events there.


Perla una jovencita de 13 anos de edad, excelente amiga, bailarina y estudiante.
Perla fue recientemente diagnosticada con cancer!
Al principio los doctores pensaron que era influenza, luego la diagnosticaron con Pneumonia, pero al no mejorar sus sintomas, su mama la llevo nuevamete al hospital, donde ademas se dieron cuenta que estaba perdiendo mucho peso, por lo que decidieron hacer  mas estudios,los resultados...CANCER!!!
El cancer que ella tiene es un tipo muy raro que afecta principalmente a los adolescentes. El cancer esta afectando sus huesos y esta alrededor de sus pulmones, costillas y muy cerca del corazon.
Perla recibio su primer quimioterapia hoy, pero le espera un camino largo para su recuperacion.
La familia de Perla depende del ingreso de su Papa, y ella necesita que el este a su lado en estos momentos. Nosotros esperamos poder recaudar fondos para ayudar con los gastos y que el Papa de Perla pueda enfocarse solo en su recuperacion y estar con ella en estos momentos.
Estamos planeando mas eventos para la recudacion de fondos para la familia. Nos pueden econtrar en facebook como " Orgullo Latino" (grupo de baile al que pertenece Perla) ahi tendremos detalles de todos los eventos futuros.
Esperamos contar con su ayuda!
Hoy por Perla, manana quiza por alguno de nosotros!
