Help for Julian and his family.

Posted by Nansee New on January 23, 2014, 2:07 pm

Some of you have already met Julian. For those who have not, this beautiful boy was born without a femur bone. His parents are requesting help from the visiting community to pay for his trips to Guadalajara for physical therapy and to Mexico City for adjustments in his prosthesis. They need to take 2-3 trips per year to each of these two cities. The annual bus fare for both parents (Julian goes for free) totals 18,000 pesos.

There are two trips coming up in February - one to Guadalajara on the 9th and one to Mexico City on the 16th. Recently Belen ( his mom) took him to Guadalajara and spent a good deal of the money we had already raised for Julian at a specialist, which was not anticipated or budgeted. As a result she now has 3000 pesos in Julian's account. The bus fare alone to Mexico City for Julian's parents is over 4000 pesos.

Please consider giving generously to this local family. There will be a donation jar at the opening of ArTiSaniK Pazifico tomorrow evening (Jan24). There is also a donation jar in the event space at Casa Luz. Or you can pass your donations to me personally.

Thanks very much
