Thank you for believe in Casa de la Amistad

"I was diagnosed with cancer on October 2, 2017 at the Hospital Infantil de México.

After 9 months of chemotherapy, they decided to give me a bone marrow transplant, and then they sent me to Casa de la Amistad to shelter me since my house was not suitable for me to live there.

I thank you very much for all the support that Casa de la Amistad gives me and for my medicines, food, shelter and all the services you provide, as well as the transportation support, which allow me to go to the hospitals and my home to continue with my treatment.

Keep getting many smiles from these little angels.

Thanks a lot!"

Your donative help to change a life

Dear [donor first name],

My name is Ángela, I started with a high fever, headache and paleness, my mother took me to the consultation and they gave me many medications, but they did not work for me, the doctors did not know what I had, that was when they decided to take me to the Hospital Infantil Federico Gómez in Mexico City, where they did several studies and took plates, first they controlled my fever and when they gave the results to my mother they confirmed that I had acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

They told her that the treatment was very long and expensive, the social workers at the hospital asked her if they had relatives or someone to get to in the City and she told them that we had no one, that's when they told her that they could send us to Casa de la Amistad, after doing a socioeconomic study, they told her that we could receive support from Casa de la Amistad.

For me and my mother it is very important to have the support of the Institution since we do not have enough resources to treat the disease, transportation is one of the very important supports since without it we would not have a way to cover the expenses to move and we could not continue my treatment.

“My message to the donors is Thank you! For your big heart and for helping more families and us with treatment so we can regain our health”

Ángela
