Ingrid needs to see a specialist!

Ingrid with her 2 sisters

You may remember Ingrid Elizabeth, the 4 year old in our San Antonio preschool. She has been ill with some very troubling symptoms that, according to some medical professionals, are symptoms of leukemia.

Mayan Families has provided Ingrid with some initial blood exams, but we have received different diagnoses from different medical professionals and no one seems to really know what's going on. We're extremely worried about Ingrid and need to send her to a specialist.

We desperately need to get Ingrid to the capital so she can be examined by a specialist and we can find out what's going on. Her parents are willing to go, but they are very afraid. They've never traveled that far before and they don't speak Spanish. We will have a MF employee who is bilingual accompany them, and another MF employee who is knowledgable about the hospital go with them. The cost of transportation, to pay for the translators, and food for the family (as it will be a day long trip) is $130.

Please help us determine what illness this little girl has so we can find her proper treatment! To donate, please go to Donate Now and scroll down. Enter your donation in the "Other $" box. In the "Details" box, write "Ingrid Medical". Thank you so much!
