Looks like we’re going to Mexico!
(Actually, we already were from before we started this fund raiser, the difference is now we can go without worrying how to pay for the treatment for the next 10-12 months.)
We are *extremely* grateful.
However, I have upped the limit of the fund raiser and kept it open.
-There are still many people who like to contribute and there are always unforseen circumstances.
Since Emma is on chemotherapy (and will be for a while), her immune system is not always working on peak efficency, and as such, she is prone to get quite ill much easier than the average child. If Emma gets ill while we are in Mexico, we need to pay for that care as well in addition to the treatments.
$5000 USD buys us 24 hours in an intensive care unit.
Only yesterday I read about a family with a girl who had to abort their cancer treatment in Monterrey due to their daughter getting pneumonia and spent 30 days in the ICU.
They lost $150,000 USD out of their funds just due to a pneumonia.
We don’t want to repeat the same thing.
We are going. YOU guys made this happen. I have lost count on how many thousands of people have joined together for getting Emma there and if anything, it shows that mankind is not as bad as the newspapers let us to believe.
We love you all.
