Damarys Hernandez: Face of a Survivor!

First and foremost, your love, support, prayers, and well wishes have been overwhelming the past few months. It's difficult for us to ask for any more from you. Please know how much we appreciate every kind word, prayer, and amount of love sent our way.

As some of you may know, Damarys was first diagnosed with a tumor of the brain that was thought to be benign in February of 2011. She underwent surgery and the tumor was removed. She continued with her regular check ups and for a few months felt better.

In December of 2011, Damarys began with the same symptoms as earlier that year. Another scan showed what appeared to be an air bubble or blood clot. After having been sent home, the symptoms worsened and another scan was conducted in May 2012 that showed the tumor had returned and was growing at a much more rapid pace.

The doctors at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine have unanimously determined that she is in critical need of radiation. Immediately Damarys and her family applied for disability insurance to cover her medical expenses. Unfortunately, she was declined.

Her family and friends are willing to do anything and everything we can to save Damary's life. The method of treatment she needs is very costly and we would really appreciate you helping us. Words can not express how much this has changed Damary's life in the past year. Again, as a family we are willing to help Damarys in any way possible and are asking for your help as well.

The Hernandez family and friends thank you with our hearts. And we will continue to pray for Damarys.
