Linda Perez GoFundMe
Hello and thank you for taking the time to read the story on our Linda Perez.
Linda underwent surgery on August 12, 2013 that left her disabled for life.
Linda Perez was 18-years-old when she went in for a "routine" procedure at the Coral Gables Cosmetic Center in August 2013. She left the center in a coma and remained in a vegetative state for approximately three months. While now out of the coma, she remains brain damaged and requires 24 hour nursing care. Unless utilizing assistance, she can no longer walk, eat, bathe, and/or go to the bathroom herself. She can also no longer care for her son on her own. All of the medical expenses are astronomical and not feasable for the family to take care of on their own. We need your help.
Linda researched the facility prior to having surgery there but unfortunately the anesthesiologist the clinic selected to participate in her surgery, Dr. Mario Albert Diaz was not listed on the website as one of their doctors. , Dr. Diaz had previously been convicted of federal drug trafficking and served 30 months in federal prison, followed by two years of probation, unbeknownst to Linda. At some point prior to Linda's surgery, Dr. Diaz was unfortunately able to get back his medical license.
Please share Linda's story.
So sad that younger and younger girls are turning to cosmetic surgery. Not sure when that picture was taken, but she looks healthier here: https://www.facebook.com/arlyalfarot51/photos/pcb.1598416187135466/1598415037135581/?type=3&theater
To the woman with the questions below. The page was created by the family attorney, on behalf of the mom, the young ladies caretaker. It is in the article on Facebook.
I am confused. At the top of the page, it says this page was created by Mark Eiglarsh on behalf of Mariela Diaz. The story is about Linda Perez. So, who is Mariela? If this happened at the Coral Gables Cosmetic Center, why is she not suing them for everything they've got - if they were at fault? The part about the doctor really doesn't have anything to do with it because he was put in jail for pushing drugs but he got his license back when he got out of jail. Him being in jail and this story aren't related. There is no diagnosis either.. nothing saying what actually caused this condition. I don't mind donating but this cause has too many unanswered questions for me. I want to make sure my money is going for a genuinely good cause.
