Hello this is Emiliano just turned 4 this year. A few months ago he was diagnosed with leukemia. The doctor said he needs chemotherapy urgently, we have done some sessions. But home session costs about $ 12,000 Mexican pesos, this amounts to about $ 600 US dollars. Maybe that is not much for you but for me that is my household income in 2 months. We have to go to Mexico City once a month for chemotherapy.

We still need many sessions, and we no longer have money to take my little boy for the October session. We are trying to get help from the government or a foundation, but we are still on waiting lists.I'm desperate I don't know what to do anymore. We have borrowed money from friends and family.

I have stopped working to take care of it at home. He is so strong, he needs special care. This August I wonder that because he couldn't go to school like his brothers, I told him that I was going to teach him here at home. He has only been in chemotherapy for 3 months and has changed so much. We had to cut his hair because he was losing it.

I really try to be strong for him, one as a person is never expected or prepared for these things. As I said before I don't know what to do, this is my last option. Without your help I will not be able to continue. We live by the forces of the city of Acapulco in the state of Guerrero in Mexico. If you have $ 10 dollars, $ 5 dollars or $ 1 dollar, they helped me a lot little by little. Believe me if there was no other option I would not be here.

I just want my baby to be like before. I want him to  run, play soccer, play with other children and go to school. My baby is so strong, he is the only one who keeps me going. I hold my tears when he is with me so he can see that I am not torn inside. I thank anyone who has taken the time to read this, and I will be totally grateful that they can donate to me. Please donate what you can help me with my baby.
