Surgery To Remove Cancerous Growth On Brian's Arm

Donation protected
Ok, well, I sent all your generous donations over to EntreAmigos and they are ready to pay the hospital bill, BUT at Brian's medical consult, yesterday, we found out that the hospital didn't include the actual surgeon's costs... So instead of $22,000P +IVA, we now need $64,000P +IVA. UGGGHH...

Fortunately, both Sarah Kaminshine (ex EntreAmigos Director and fellow coordinator of Brian's healthcare) and I kept taking donations, as we've learned the hard way over the years, that when it comes to Brian's health, there are always surprises that call for just a bit more dinero.

***So, with what we have, we still need about another $2,000USD or $3,000CDN (if we include IVA).***

I really want to get him in into surgery, as I'm worried they'll cut off his hand/or arm if the cancer has spread.

It's not much of a hand or arm, as Brian's fingers were burnt off in the fire, but Brian is an amazing kid, and his tiny handwriting is the best of anyone I know, and he writes in good, old-fashioned cursive!! He can even ride a motorcycle with that thing, so, we'd like him to be able to keep it.

He currently works as a telemarketer in TJ and uses his hands for his computer work each day in order to help contribute to his family's finances. Without his hand or arm...

So... if we can get the money, he can have surgery on either Dec. 9th or Dec. 15th.

I sort of think of Brian as Sayulita's most famous, adopted son.

We gave Brian a GREAT Birthday present on Nov. 28th.

So, what do you say, should we try to blow him out of the water with an even more AMAZING Christmas present?

Please help, amigos.
