Mayra Needs Prayer...and Help

Mayra 7 comes from a strong praying Christian home. They need to be. Mayra has a problem with the right lower part of her brain that affects her face, motor skills and causes massive headaches. It may be a growth or water on the brain. We knew of USA doctors visiting the capitol that specialized in this kind of care and had a small window of time. It was an opportunity we could not pass up and rushed her to the airport 3 hours away just for a brief encounter. The doctors requested an MRI before they left to see if they could help. Lisa and I took her to the only MRI place in the capitol, drained the last of our bank account, on the chance the doctors could and would help. The doctors took the scans back to the States for review. Pray something can and will be done. The money spent would have cost this family several months pay. For us it was less than one month’s support, but the opportunity to save a life... priceless.
