Arturo Ramirez Alarcon requires immediate surgery on his foot, or he will lose it.  It started 4 years ago when he had to have 2 toes amputated.  He has been good for 4 years but in April of this year, due to overcompensating his foot while walking, he developed a large open sore on the bottom of his foot.  He hasn't been able to work since April.  He went to Mexico City to have his foot attended to and then came back to PV to heal -- but it hasn't healed and the Doctor took an x-ray last week and found that the inside of his remaining toes is badly infected, thus the immediate surgery.  The surgery  costs $10,000 pesos but the medicine which he has to take afterward is $10,000 pesos per month for 2 months.
