My Mother, Maria Aparecida (59 years old) and diabetic, from a low background family in Brazil. She is been fighting and suffering so much with her health issues. 10 years ago, she was diagnosed with (Rheumatoid Arthritis), later on she had a lower back fracture that requires a very risky surgery.
Two days before Christmas eve, she was diagnosed with a condition called (diabetes mellitus), most known as (diabetes feet). The infection is spreading too fast that she is in high risk of having to amputate her lower leg or having a general infection that leads to death.
She is in constant pain and agony as she needed to stop taking her medicines which are very strong pain killers for the lower back fracture and for Rheumatoid Arthritis. This is to control the diabetes so that the antibiotics can fight the infection.
Our town is very limited with hospitals and professionals, she needs to be transferred urgently to a bigger city, where the hospitals and the professionals are more equipped to deal with her condition and where she will have bigger chances of recovering and save her lower leg and her life.
The money will be used to cover hospital costs such as exams, medicine and a variety of different type of treatments she will need to go through in order to manage her condition.
