Hola a todos. Somos Karla y Erika De La Vega.

Mi mamá sufrió un aneurisma que la va a mantener aislada de sus micrófonos de interpretación y las traducciones por los próximos 9 meses. Su carrera ha sido su pasión y único trabajo durante más de 40 años. Como la mayoría saben, ella es intérprete freelance y, por lo tanto, no tendrá ingreso alguno hasta que sane y pueda retomar sus actividades.

Para Erika y para mí (nosotras) es y será muy difícil afrontar todos los gastos que se nos avecinan y, por ello, apelamos a su generosidad. Sabemos lo mucho que quieren y aprecian a María Cristina, y que tanto ustedes como nosotras queremos recuperarla completamente. Se que ustedes van a querer tener de vuelta a esa amiga que siempre está dispuesta a compartir sus buenos y malos momentos, ofreciendo soluciones y amistad incondicional, así como queremos nosotras de vuelta a esa incansable, generosa y amorosa madre. ¡Les estaremos eternamente agradecidas por su donación!

Hello to everyone from Karla and Erika De la Vega:

As many of you might know, our mother, María Cristina Quesada, suffered an aneurism which resulted in surgery and a week in the intensive care unit of Westside Hospital in Plantation, Florida. She has been released and is now convalescing at home. Her condition will require intensive therapy for at least nine months. A nearly full recovery is expected in nine months.

During the period of therapy she will be totally unable to continue her work as a freelance simultaneous translator. As most of you know, her work has been both her passion and her only source of income for over forty years. The length of time required for the necessary therapy treatment means that she will not have any income until she is able to resume her career.

Losing her only source of income to cover her living expenses as well as those associated with the lengthy treatment to achieve our mother’s recovery poses a big challenge for both of us until she is able to resume her career. We know how much you love and appreciate Cristy and we now appeal to your generosity to help us meet these expenses. We know she is loved by her friends and we all want to see her back with her vibrant personality and proud of her professional career.

We will always be grateful for your support.
