Guy Michael brought her to the attention of HKIE. One of our board members, Luis Galarza, contacted the father and Sister Veronica Kim who works with HKIE out of her Palmar clinic on the coast north of Salinas.
Sister Veronica will have Maria examined at Roberto Gilbert Hospital in Guayaquil, who will then make arrangements to get Maria into the Solca cancer hospital to continue her treatments.
The cost for HKIE should be minimal as most of Maria's treatments should be free. For Maria and her family, the biggest contribution from HKIE is how quickly our medical staff can get her back into her treatment schedule. With regards to her cancer, time is not her friend.
Your prayers and thoughts are requested for Maria. And thank you to all involved who took the time to help this little child!
Isn't she a cutie!
