Cuban, Maria Cristina Martinez Munoz, (pictured left) died on 11th January at the age of 50 having battled with diabetes for many years, leaving her 15 year old daughter Arasay Alamo with cerebral palsy and bound to a wheelchair. My partner Juan Mursuli Munoz (pictured centre) once a doctor in Cuba now lives in the UK and desperate to support his mother, Candida (pictured left) who also suffers from diabetes type 1 insulin dependent. Juan's mother is now caring for Maria's daughter in their family home which is by no means wheelchair friendly or wheelchair accessible, hence a constant struggle without the help of family and friends. Juan would like to raise money to send to Cuba to help make some very basic improvements to the home to make life a little easier for Maria's daughter and her carer, Great Auntie Candida. Although Juan and me are running in support of BUPA's nominated charity Diabetes UK, we would like any donations to go direct to the source. In this case to Candida who lives in Cayo Hueso, Havana Cuba. Candida shares her home with 4 grandchildren and now Arasay. They have no running water and have a very primitive living conditions so every little helps! They still live on rations and therefore food is minimal and their diet is not ideal, especially for diabetes sufferers. Candida has very poor eye sight due to her condition and struggles to leave the house. As well Juan's sister Evita has diabetes, as does my father, now 83 and struggling with many symptoms. We would be extremely grateful to anybody happy to pledge to what we hope you agree is worthy...With love Juan and Trish.
