Child Of The Month
By Nicole Sergent
Programa Pro Niños Incapacitados
Maria Guadalupe A.T.
Maria was born in August 2009 in Chapala. She came to our Chapala Clinic after being diagnosed with Leukemia at the end of 2013.
The family needed help with transport to and from Guadalajara, with blood tests and others throughout the treatment period and some medication.
She underwent 35 months of chemotherapy and is now in remission since the end of October 2017. The doctors will do follow up on her with exams every six months for the next year and they are very hopeful that she will continue to remain cancer free.
We have reimbursed the family a total of 30,429 pesos and we will continue to help with tests and transport for this coming year.
Thank you for this opportunity; once again, it is very exciting for us when we have good news like this after helping a child for a few years.
I invite you to visit our website at:

Column: Child of the Month
Nicole and her husband Bob have lived in Ajiic since 2007. Nicole has lived in Canada, Japan, Portugal and Spain. She speaks French, English and Spanish. Since her arrival in Ajijic, she has been active in the community. She worked for the Red Cross for many years and has been involved with Ninos Incapacitados since 2009. “Working with the families is sometimes hard emotionally but it is so rewarding when we see the appreciation that the parents have for what we do.” Nicole and her husband appreciate the beauty of Mexico and the friendliness of its people.
