In Danli, Honduras, there is an amazing little girl in need.  Laura is 13 years old and has had a tumor growing on her face since she was two.  Her family lives hours from the closest hospital and cannot afford surgery.  Time is ticking.  Laura has dropped out of school from the pain of being teased, and all the while, her health suffers.  She is now at risk of losing her right eye.  We need your help to fund Laura’s surgery. Let’s make a difference together and change Laura’s life.

UPDATE: Over $20,000 Raised and We Can Still Do More


Everything donated above and beyond the goals will be given to Laura, Hansy and Eber to provide them with the education they've missed as result of their conditions.

In El Campo, Honduras, I met an amazing little girl in need. Laura is 12 years old and has a rare facial tumor. It began protruding from her face at the age of two, but her family cannot afford surgery. They live two hours from the closest hospital in the capital city of Tegucigalpa. Laura has dropped out of school from the agony of being teased, and all the while, her health suffers. Her tumor greatly affects her mouth, teeth, and her ability to eat. If left untreated, it will lead to further health risks including the potential loss of her eye. Time is ticking. Let’s give Laura surgery!

In Laura’s village, I met two brothers named Eber and Hansy with another incredibly rare disease. They grow breasts and are at high risk of breast cancer. Heartbreaking. This condition greatly impacts their everyday lives and is detrimental to their well-being. Each brother needs a double mastectomy and biopsy, which costs $3,500 each.

We have a doctor ready to perform their surgery tomorrow. We are so so close and only need the funds. Come on guys…let’s do this.
