Success! Marta from Guatemala raised $1,850 to get healthy.

  • $1,850 raised, $5 to go
Fully funded
Marta's treatment was fully funded on January 03, 2013.

Marta is a 43-year-old wife and mother with with papillary thyroid cancer. Her doctors are confident that her cancer can be cured with surgery and radiation therapy. Without treatment, Marta could face debilitating symptoms that would prevent her from living a normal life.

Marta has a loving husband and a 3-year-old son she adores. She came to the doctor when she noticed a lump growing on her neck. A biopsy immediately showed that the lump was cancerous. As with most indigenous people in Guatemala, cancer care is completely unaffordable for Marta. She needs our help to cover the cost of surgery, radiation, and travel.

Let’s take care of Marta’s medical costs so she can go back to living her life!
