Nice to meet you! My name is Natali and I'm from Ibagué, Colombia!

This project is to get support to help my sister's son, who is suffering from a brain tumor. I would be really thankful if you can help him!

My 10 years old nephew is suffering a brain tumor

My nephew is only 10 years old, but he is suffering a very serious disease.

He already underwent surgery 3 times, to try to remove the tumor from his head. The tumor is located in a very delicated area in the brain, so it has not been removed completely.

My nephew is still under treatment and he needs to travel more than 200 km in order to go to the hospital, in another city.

Living together

My sister used to work as a lawyer but she has to quit when my nephew got sick, to take care of him.

My sister has 2 children. When the old one has to receive his treatment, me and my mum take care of the young one. We, as a family, try to support each other as much as we can.

As my sister has no job, me and my mum, we are taking care of the living expenses.

Usually, my nephew's treatment is covered by our health insurance, but there are other many expenses that are not included, like the transportation, food and accommodation when they are in another city to receive the treatment, as well as some vitamins he needs to take.

We just have left $200

I'm working as a teacher and my mum is working as a seamstress.

However, our family had to use a lot of savings to pay all the medical expenses until now.

My nephew needs to keep receiving treatment but without savings we won't be able to help him.

Details on needed funds

I would like to raise $1,700 so my nephew can keep going to the hospital and receive the treatment he needs. Thank you very much in advance for your support!

Schedule

All the collected funds will be used for my nephew's treatment.

We're running out of savings, so we would need support as soon as possible. I just want my nephew to have a normal and happy life, like other children!

We don't know what else we can do to get help.

We can't take another loan because we're already in debt. Please, help my nephew to keep receiving his treatment!
