If you're interested in helping Rodrigo and his family during this time, please make donations toward specified as "Rodrigo" or student number "#810". Thank you so much.

I will update the blog as soon as possible, if you have any questions please email us at familyaid@mayanfamilies org and we would be happy to talk with you further. We are respecting the family's wishes in regards to the hospital decision. The family is aware that we are willing and able to help with hospital expenses if they choose to change their mind, but Rodrigo does not want to be in the hospital alone. He was in the hospital about 15 days ago and did not receive good care. He fell various times while being attended to and did end up hurting one of his legs. He says he wants to stay home and we are respecting his decision.

Thank you so much, Caroline, for sharing your experiences with the group. It was a very sensitive, difficult situation to be part of, but I believe we were all honored to be there as we tried to offer some peace of mind and support. Much like you, I was almost sick at the thought of accepting cold bottles of water from the family, but I think it shows how much they wanted to say thank you to us for coming. In the midst of their grief, they took the time and money to show us their gratitude and I am so very humbled by this.

Thank you to those of you who are donating or considering to donate. At this time, all donations will be used for food for the family, as was Rodrigo's request. If there is a change and he does decide to go to the hospital we will notify you immediately.

All the Best,

Jenny Durica
