Martha Rincón de Durán and Martha Emma Durán Rincón have almost everything ready for the trip to the United States and are accompanied by their daughter and sister: María Fernanda Durán Rincón, a 31-year-old man from Santander, who was recently diagnosed with leukemia in that country and requires bone marrow transplant
This month, Maria Fernanda received treatment to alleviate this disease at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, in the state of Michigan.
According to the medical opinion, it is strongly required that the mother and older sister can travel to that country in order to undergo the relevant tests for the donors.
In addition to what Martha says, they want to accompany their granddaughters 3, 6 and 13 years old granddaughters, and Freddy Acevedo, the husband of Marius Fernanda, who remains in the midst of his medical company partner in this site.
After two trips to Bogotá and carrying all the documents, the two women go ahead to meet Maria Fernanda.
Last week, the United States embassy granted Martha and Martha Emma a humanitarian visa that allows them to travel to the events that Maria Fernanda is experiencing.
Every day during this treatment, the count and condition of Maria Fernanda is “serious”, explains Martha, which is why it is necessary to collect the travel expenses as soon as possible to be available for the medical staff to transfer. “No family is immune from this situation. We ask for your cooperation at this time,” said Martha.
Four times a day, Martha Rincón picks up her phone to talk to her daughter, María Fernanda, via video call and to see how she is doing. In these calls, which for the last few minutes, Martha and Maria Fernanda are happy, they exchange some anecdotes and laugh.
Faced with this situation, the family raised some money and searched through raffles and solidarity bonds to get the remaining expenses of the trip. The resources, as they admit, are not enough to travel immediately due to Maria Fernanda’s health
For this reason, this family decided to open two accounts to receive donations from people who want to help them.
