Hi! We hope you are doing well :)

This month we had outstanding results and none of them would have been possible without your great sense of commitment, solidarity and care. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Therefore, we would like to share with you a brief report of our work together.

Facts and Stats of Children in Mexico

  • 5,000 diagnostics every year
  • 59.27% without social security
  • 30-60% of survival rate

Results of Our Efforts with Children and Their Families in Mexico

  • 1,221 in active treatment
  • 4,621 in remission (observation)
  • 12,747 in more than 30 years

Now, let’s leave numbers aside and introduce you to a great person who is part of our community: Yessenia’s mom

“CDLA has helped me a lot. It gave me back my faith and hope. My story began in January 2016, when my daughter, my life, told me that her feet, heels and knees were hurting. At first, I thought it was from exercising too much but when I took her to the doctors, they did several tests and diagnosed her with leukaemia. I felt like the world was coming down on me because I also thought I would not be able to cover the expenses, but thank God they sent me to this foundation where they opened the doors to us and now everything is easier. Thank you."

Have a nice day and we'll be in touch!
