El 1 de febrero de 2019 Luis Busto falleció de cáncer gástrico en compañía de su familia en su casa en Santiago de Chile. Hemos creado esta campaña para poder ayudar a la familia de Luis a pagar la deuda hospitalaria.

Luis estudió Ingeniería Comercial en Chile y en 2011 partió a Australia por nuevos objetivos y aventuras en la vida. Se estableció en Sydney y vivió una vida muy saludable con una gran pasión al baile. En Agosto de 2018 le diagnosticaron cáncer gástrico terminal etapa IV, con esperanza de vida de 3 meses. Se hizo varias cirugías y tratamientos en Sydney cubiertas por su seguro y luego tomó la decisión de volver a Chile con la fé de salvarse y estar con su familia y amigos.

Él no estaba cubierto en Chile por alguna Isapre o seguro médico y tuvo que irse al servicio de salud público. Desafortunadamente el sistema público no fue capaz de brindarle una buena atención por lo que su familia tomó la decisión de internarlo en el hospital Clínico de la UC. Finalmente Luis falleció y su familia quedó con una deuda de alrededor de 40 millones de pesos chilenos (85 mil dólares australianos).

Cualquier aporte ayudará mucho a la familia.

Esta campaña fue creada por mi, Nicolás Celedón, a nombre de la familia de Luis y en contacto directo con ellos. Yo conocí a Luis en Chile cuando ambos estudiamos en la misma universidad en el año 2003. Luego tuvimos la suerte de vernos nuevamente en Australia ya que ambos vivíamos en Sydney. Yo sigo viviendo en Sydney y todo este monto será transferido directo al papá de Luis en Chile.

Los gastos médicos de Septiembre '18 a Enero '19 fueron financiados por la familia. La deuda pendiente de alrededor $40 millones de pesos son de las últimas semanas de Luis (10 días en el Hospital clínico de la UC en Marcoleta, 3 días en la Clínica UC en Lira y 7 días en la casa). El detalle de los costos que se pagarán con estas donaciones son las siguientes:

1) Urgencias (epicrisis) primer día: $3.128.000.
2) Día cama $800.000 en hospital Clínico  (x 10 días) y $1.200.000 en Clínica (x 3 días). Total: $11.600.000
3) Ambulancia a la casa $100.000
4) Oxígeno en casa $100.000 el día (x 7 días). Total: $700.000
5) Enfermeras a domicilio $45.000 y doctores a domicilio $80.000. Total: $635.000
6) Honorarios de kinesiólogos, nutricionistas, gastroenterólogo, medicos paliativos y oncólogos. Además del pack de morfina, jeringas y otros. Total estimado: $ 23.500.000 (a la espera de las boletas para mayor detalle).
7) Inyecciones de vitamina c y sueros especiales (192 mil + 164 mil) en casa. Total estimado: $356.000

Estamos comenzando a recibir donaciones externas, por lo que hemos bajado la meta de AU$85.000 (40 millones chilenos) a AU$75.000 ($35.500.000 pesos chilenos) para reflejar esas donaciones externas.

Muchas gracias

On 1st of February 2019 Luis died of gastric cancer in companion of his family in his house in Santiago de Chile. We are generating this campaign to help his family to pay the debt of his medical treatments.

Luis studied and started his first professional years in Chile and then on 2011 he moved to Australia to experience new adventures and reach new goals. Since then, he lived in Sydney all these years with a very healthy life and very passionated about dancing.

In August 2018 he was diagnosed of terminal gastric cancer stage IV, with life expectancy of only 3 months of life. He did several surgeries and treatments in Sydney covered by his insurance, until he decided to go back to Chile to be closer to his family and friends with the hope of recovering. 

In Chile he didn't have any insurance and had to go for public health system. Unfortunately the public system wasn't able to assist him in his treatments so his family decided to go for private health with out-of-the-pocket payments. After more battles Luis didn't recover and died in his house. Now the family has a debt around of AU$85,000 ($40,000,000 chilean pesos) of outstanding medical bills.

Any donation will enormously help the family.

This campaign was created by me, Nicolás Celedón, on behalf of Luis' family and in direct contact with them. I met Luis in Chile when we both studied at the same university in 2003. Then we were lucky to see each other again in Australia since we both lived in Sydney. I continue living in Sydney and all this amount will be transferred directly to Luis' father account in Chile.

The medical expenses from September '18 to January '19 were financed by the family. The outstanding debt of around AU$86.000 ($40 million chilean pesos) is from Luis's last weeks (10 days at the UC Hospital, 3 days at the UC Clinic and 7 days at home). The detail of the costs that will be paid with these donations are the following:

1) Emergency (epicrisis) first day: AU$6,700.
2) Day bed AU$1,700 in Clinical Hospital (x 10 days) and AU$2,552 in Clinic (x 3 days) . Total: AU$24,700
3) Ambulance at home AU$215
4) Oxygen at home AU$212 per day (x 7 days). Total: AU$1,500
5) Home nurses AU$95 and home doctors $170. Total: AU$1,400
6) Fees from kinesiologists, nutritionists, gastroenterologist, palliative doctors and oncologists. Also pack of morphine, needles etc. Total estimated: AU$50,000 (awaiting for invoices for more details).
7) Injections of vitamin C and special intravenous (AU$408 + AU$349) at home. Estimated total: AU$760

We are starting to receive some external donations. So we just updated the goal lowering from AU$85,000 to AU$75,000 to show those external donations.

Thank you very much
