It is very hard and sad for us to share this news. Unfortunately, this morning our friend Dorita Ramos passed away (Dec8, 2013). The donation page will continue to receive contributions until Dec15 (Next Sunday) to help her children in Perú More ...

My wife Cinthya and I (David Jackson) are raising money for our close friend in Peru to help her pay her medical expenses. Meet Dorita Ramos who is 36 years old and a single mother with 4 young children, living in the remote city of Huancavelica, Peru. She was diagnosed late with stage 4 breast cancer in February 2013. Dorita is a very hard working mom who worked as a secretary until recently due to her weak condition from her battle with breast cancer.

There are no cancer centers in Huancavelica, so Dorita needs to travel 6 hours to the nearest cancer center in Huancayo city, Peru. She began treatments of chemotherapy prescribed by her doctor.

The chemotherapy treatment is expensive, and it has depleted her savings. She has received her chemotherapy number 9 (once per month), and her body is not responding well to the treatment. She has lost a lot of weight, and is unable to walk by herself.


In November 2013, her doctors decided to take a more aggressive approach by starting treatments of chemotherapy (once per week), radiotherapy, and also prescribed  Trastuzumab  (Herceptin) 440 mg injection (once per month for 12 months). It has been impossible for her to afford this medicine (cost of each injection is around $2800 USD).  [... Herceptin can slow or stop the growth of the breast cancer. Herceptin is an example of an immune targeted therapy. In addition to blocking HER2 receptors, Herceptin can also help fight breast cancer by alerting the immune system to destroy cancer cells onto which it is attached...]

Please keep Dorita's Health and her family in your prayers. If you would like, kindly  write  a positive message to cheer her up (in English or Spanish),  suggest a passage of The Bible that can boost her spiritual strength, or any other encouragement is welcome. We will call her and let her know immediately, and our family in Peru will print the messages to give her.

Join us to help Dorita fight her Cancer "A fight for her life." Her children deserve to have their mom with them. Let's help her and her family with our prayers, positive energy, love, and with donations, if it is possible for you, any amount will be greatly appreciated. Dorita Ramos and her family need our support and positive energy. Let's help make her feel that she is not alone in her fight, so she can focus on her health and children without the worry of costly medical bills.

Thank you to everyone for taking the time to know about Dorita's condition, for your help and contributions. Kindly share the link with your friends and loved ones.

God bless you!

With love,

David & Cinthya Jackson.
