Family History

I was born November 13, 2009, in Ensenada Baja California. I come from a family of 4, which includes my parents, my 8 year old brother and me. My dad works as a phone company promoter and he is the one that pays for all the house expenses. His income is $ 4.000.00 MXN and all the money goes towards paying our expenses. My mom is a housewife dedicated to taking care of our home, of my brother and me.

Medical History

On April 20, 2014, I woke up with pain on my left foot and with fever, my parents were very worried because I began to limp and the fever would not stop. They took me to get medical attention, where they performed laboratory tests and the results were not good. The doctor told my parents that something was wrong and that we would have to go to a specialist. We went to the specialist so that I would get evaluated. The results of the tests that were performed were not favorable to my health. The doctor called my parents to give them the results and the diagnosis was that I had acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

The doctor suggested that I get an appointment at the Pediatric Oncology Center of Baja California and on August 13, 2014, I saw Dr. Lozano who told my parents that I would have to be hospitalized for further follow-up. This is the story of how I got to this pleasant place where I am surrounded by good people that take care for me.

Current State

I currently receive ambulatory chemotherapy. I don’t feel very well so it is hard to be at the hospital but I like it because I can play and talk with the medical team, with other kids receiving treatment and with the Foundation’s staff. Fortunately I have reacted well to the treatment. Dr. Lozano tells me that I am doing well.

Treatment Cost

The estimated cost of my treatment is of $326,081.75 MXN without including any complications.
