Initially when we were writing this we were coming with sad news about one of our Hope for Youth family members cancer diagnosis. But, by the grace of God, after a third opinion and surgery we are happy to say we are not asking for help for cancer treatments.
Yackelin is a the wife of our beloved friend and taxi driver Aurturo. A couple months ago Yackelin had contracted Covid 19 and was in the hospital for a while. Soon after she felt lumps in her breasts but thought that it was just an affect of Covid. Without having insurance, she didn't get it checked out by a doctor because of the fear of another medical expense her and her family couldn't afford during this economic time.
After a couple of months the lumps and stared to develope more and cause serious problems. She went to a doctor and they told her the devastating diagnosis of breast cancer. As a mother of three and one being very young, their family was heartbroken. They went to get a second opinion and that doctor gave the same answer.
So we were contacted earlier in the week to see if we can help in anyway to get the cancer treatments started. Yackelin was having very bad infections in her breasts had to go the hospital. They performed a surgery on her by a different doctor and to everyone's surprise yesstrday, they found that the lumps in her breasts turned out to be solid balls of milk from when she stopped breast feeding about a year ago.
All glory to God that she doesn't t have breast cancer!
They said that she has two very bad infections in both of her breasts which she is on strong antibiotics for and has been in the hospital for a few days and is expected to be in the hostal for a few more.
The family is without medical insurance and would need help paying for their hospital stay, medications and help for their family while Aurturo stops work to help Yackelin and their children.
If you can help in anyway please donate below, they would appreciate it so very much.
