Leticia Fuentes 60 y/o had emergency brain tumor surgery on 12/27/18 while visiting in NYC. Dr. will not allow air travel. Loss of motor skills. PLEASE. help get her back home to FL to start chemo & radiation therapy not covered out of state by insurance.

My name is Evelyn Caro. My appeal for help is on behalf of my 60 year old sister Leticia (Letty) Fuentes who underwent sudden brain surgery on 12/27/18.

On 11/30/18, Leticia traveled by car with her husband from their home in Deltona, FL to NYC to take care of their daughter recovering from a major surgery and to help her with her 10 month old baby. On 12/20/18 she experienced multiple symptoms that led her to believe she was having a stroke. She took a taxi to the hospital (by now her husband Noel had returned to FL due to his part-time job. He's since then returned to NYC). What came next was a shocker to us all.  My sister was informed in the Emergency Room that she had brain cancer. The increasing pressure from the tumor was such that she had to have brain surgery on 12/27/18.

Family members from out of state as well as many dear friends and acquaintances were all there physically and in prayer and Leticia made it through thanks be to God. Her recovery challenges are going to be tough. One of the major hurdle is transporting her to FL from NYC. Her medical insurance does not cover her required chemo and radiation therapy nor transport out of state. Her health is very weak. Her blood pressure and diabetes numbers are unstable requiring constant administration of stronger & additional meds. She has lost use of her right arm and leg thus her husband has to sponge bathe her and help her with all her other needs. Her veins are narrow and it causes her excruciating pain every time a line is inserted.  Her delicate state presents a monumental challenge for her to travel back to FL by car. This would take them many high risk days of travel. How can then such a weak state prepare her to take on chemo and radiation therapy?

Here's my appeal: please help us transport Letty back to FL in as safe, strengthening, and comfortable a manner as possible. This transport company can do just that. ACC Medlink Medical Transport - https://medic-trans.com/medlink-brochure.pdf 

The quoted cost is: $5,740.00. Any amount of help you can provide would be greatly appreciated and blessed by God. I know God will make a way for my sister's needs. Letty has such a big and generous heart and has helped many people. She's the type that doesn't lend money if someone asks, instead she gives/gifts it, out of her abundance and even lack.

Please help us help our sister financially and/or prayerfully.

May God bless you,

Evelyn
