For the past several months, Esperanza has been working along with The Ruth Paz Foundation and others in advocating for two year old Nelly who had a huge tumor in her stomach. She was finally accepted for surgery in Virginia and traveled there with her mother. Today she underwent surgery and her little body began to fail….after heroic efforts medical personnel stabilized her and she was sent to PICU.
Sadly, Nelly passed away at 2:00 p.m. Our thoughts are with her heartbroken family. Rest in peace, baby Nelly.
