Dear friend, I hope you are healthy.

I am writing this message to tell you about Nicole, one of the teenagers who benefits from the donations received through GlobalGiving. Nicole is 15 years old, she was born and raised in Venezuela and since 2019 she moved to live in Medellín Colombia with her father and brothers because of the social and economic crisis that affected her family and led them to seek new opportunities in our country (colombia).

Nicole likes the arts, especially painting, she loves to draw, do crafts, listen to music and cook, she is currently taking a muralism course with which she hopes to enhance all her artistic abilities.

From the age of 6 he was diagnosed with craniopharyngioma, which is a rare, non-cancerous (benign) type of brain tumor that includes gradual changes in vision, urine, feeling tired, headaches, and affects growth. This has resulted in loss of vision in his left eye and part of the vision in his right eye, constant urinary tract infections, and hypothyroidism.

From our Foundation we support Nicole because she does not receive her medical attention in the public health system in Colombia and her family does not have sufficient financial resources to guarantee the treatments that she requires.

Thanks to your generosity and support since January 2020, Nicole receives appropriate treatment for her recovery, which includes special consultations for ophthalmology, nephrology, neurology, pediatrics, endocrinology, medications and glasses. She is part of a project for adolescents run by the foundation in which she receives workshops for the promotion of healthy sexual and reproductive health and the prevention of psychoactive substance use, and also receives virtual psychology appointments.

I thank you on behalf of the Foundation and each of our children and adolescents!

Querido amigo, espero que estés sano y salvo.

Les escribo este mensaje para contarles sobre Nicole, una de las adolescentes que se beneficia con las donaciones recibidas a través de Globa Giving. Nicole tiene 15 años, ella nació y creció en Venezuela y desde el año 2019 se trasladó a vivir a Medellín Colombia con su padre y hermanos a causa de la crisis social y económica que afectó a su familia y los llevó a buscar nuevas oportunidades en nuestro país.

A Nicole le gustan las artes, en especial la pintura, le encanta dibujar, realizar manualidades, escuchar música y cocinar, actualmente se encuentra realizando un curso de muralismo con el cual espera potencializar todas sus capacidades artísticas.

Desde los 6 años se le diagnostico craneofaringioma, que es un tipo de tumor cerebral no canceroso (benigno) y poco frecuente que comprende cambios graduales en la visión, la orina, sensación de cansancio, dolores de cabeza y afecta el crecimiento. Esto ha tenido como consecuencias la perdida de la visión en su ojo izquierdo y parte de la visión del ojo derecho, constantes infecciones urinarias e hipotiroidismo.

Desde nuestra Fundación apoyamos a Nicole porque no recibe sus atenciones médicas en el sistema de salud público en Colombia y su familia no cuenta con los recursos económicos suficientes para garantizar los tratamientos que ella requiere.

Gracias a su generosidad y al apoyo desde enero de 2020, Nicole recibe un tratamiento adecuado para su recuperación, que incluye consultas especializadas de oftalmología, nefrología, neurología, pediatría, endocrinología, medicamentos y lentes. Hace parte de un proyecto para adolescentes que ejecuta la fundación en el cual recibe talleres para la promoción de la sana salud sexual - reproductiva y la prevención de consumo de sustancias psicoactivas y además recibe citas de psicología virtuales.

¡Les agradezco en nombre de la Fundación y deseo que su buena acción sea devuelta con creces!
