Our Heartfelt Sympathy to Nelly’s family

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.

Searching For Help

Earlier this week, I received the medical information for Nelly Fernandez, from Mrs. Peggy Kipps, Executive Director of The Ruth Paz Foundation in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Twenty-two month old Nelly suffers from “Fibromatosis Infantile” and is in URGENT need of help to remove the large tumor in her abdomen. And so the process begins of finding an interested doctor and hospital who will be able to provide medical care at a reduced amount, and an interested party in providing the financial support. Here’s hoping for a successful outcome.

Please keep little Nelly in your thoughts.
