Child Of The Month

By Barb Corol

child oct2017

Mariana Belen was born December 24, 2004 and lives with her parents and two siblings. She was referred to Niños Incapacitados by DID Jocotopec and accepted into the program in March 2017. 

In December 2016, Mariana was experiencing excruciating pains and rushed to the hospital.  After undergoing an MRI and numerous blood tests, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  Shortly thereafter she was operated on where doctors removed one tumor from her ovary and began chemotherapy.

Subsequent testing reveals that Mariana will need further surgery.

Seguro Popular are helping the family with all hospital costs.  We are helping with transportation for her chemo, blood analysis and medications.

To date, we have reimbursed the family $4500 Pesos.

Mariana will finish with her chemotherapy shortly and doctors will monitor her condition in preparation for her second surgery.

As Director of the Jocotopec Clinic, thank you for the opportunity of presenting some of our children to you.

Remember we see families at three locations, Jocotopec, Chapala and Ajijic.  Should you be interested in attending a clinic, please contact Nicole Sergent at 376-766-4375 or Barb Corol at 376-766-5452

We are looking for individuals or foundations who can help us take over the care of our ageing out-children. If you can help, please contact Nicole Sergent at the number listed above.
