When Mario was 17, he suffered serious injuries from a high-voltage electricity line. The lower half of his right arm and his entire right leg had to be amputated.
Mario was fitted with two prostheses, one for his arm and one for his leg. They have served him well and enabled him to live a relatively normal, productive life over the last ten years.
But after a decade of hard work, Mario’s arm prothesis has worn out. The hand no longer functions, and the base no longer fits well. This causes pain and chafing, and makes it difficult for Mario to work to support himself.
Mario needs a functioning arm prosthesis to continue working. For $600, Wuqu’ Kawoq can replace Mario’s prosthesis, allowing him to resume working without pain. The cost of treatment includes $100 for travel and $500 for the prosthetic itself. Let’s help this extremely resilient guy get back to work!
