By Rubén Morales Iglesias: A family is seeking help to cover medical expenses of BZ$250,000 for medical expenses for 24-year-old Ariadiny Sanchez, who has been diagnosed with extensive longitudinal myelitis.
According to Magnu Sanchez, who asked for help in a Facebook post, the Sanchez family is “currently feeling overwhelmed by the huge medical bills cleared so far ($100, 000 BZD.) As if though, that was not already a large amount of money, we need to come up with $150, 000 BZD more.”
Ariadiny Sanchez is hospitalized at the Star Medica Hospital in Merida, Mexico, where she is receiving urgent medical treatment.
A letter from a doctor at the Star Medica Hospital explained that Ariadiny needs five plasma transfusions at a cost of $1,000,000 pesos. The doctor added that Ariadiny will need two weeks of intensive care hospitalization which costs an additional $200,000 pesos per day.
“As a family, we humbly urge our relatives, friends and by extension the wider community to keep my niece in your prayers. We would also very much appreciate any monetary contribution towards this cause,” Magnu Sanchez said.
