Please consider donating to help this sweet little 12 year old girl Daniela.
Daniela is a bright and sweet girl with a great sense of humor.
Daniela is from Santa Marta, Colombia. Our Medical Team first met Daniela while doing medical missions in Colombia.
Sadly, she has been living in the hospital for many years. Daniela was born with a rare disorder of her immune system leaving her susceptible to infections that any other person would easily be able to fight off. Her body has been attacked by bacteria and funguses that have caused a relentless destruction beginning in her sinuses and spreading to all areas of her face. In the past year it has become more aggressive and it now affects her vision and her speech as well. The medical teams have done all they can in the area of Colombia where she lives but she lives with a continually progressing destruction and deformation of her face.
Recently, through the efforts of several infectious disease specialists in the U.S., her diagnosis of Corynespora Cassiicola Disease has been established, and the N.I.H. (National Institutes of Health), in Bethesda, Maryland accepted her case. Daniela and her dad arrived on April 15th and she is now a patient in their facility in Maryland. She is receiving antifungal therapy and doing well. With your help, we are hoping to raise money to help support Daniela and her father while they are here for treatment. This may be a lengthy process and Daniela will need plastic surgery after treatment of the infection.
Please make your tax deductible donation today to help support Daniela while she is in the U.S.
100% of your donation will go to support Daniela.
No amount is too small and we are very grateful for any help you can provide.
