Isis Andrea Rojas Arce
Andrea is currently 5 years old and has a complex set of problems concerning her heart. She suffers from Pulmonary Atresia which is a lack of proper development in the Pulmonary Artery and its branches that does not enable her body to get the oxygen she needs. She also has a large hole in her heart. She came to Tijuana to do a full series of tests. A major university in California is currently considering her case. We will also approach a foundation based in BCS with connections to pediatric doctors in the United States to see if anything can be done. Andrea is also scheduled to be seen by ISSSTE in August. She has been seen twice by them. However, ISSSTE has not initiated any significant steps to seek a solution for Andrea.
Lupita Amador Villegas
Lupita is a 2-1/2-year-old girl who has spastic cerebral palsy. She is a very happy girl but currently cannot walk. She is now receiving regular therapy both in La Paz and in Loreto. She was also given a special needs stroller to help her mother move her around. The hope is that in the very near future she will be able to walk with the help of a walker or cane. This would significantly improve her life.
