We would like to introduce you to Eloy, our new hero of the month! This sweet 11-year-old is winning his fight against Leukemia.
Eloy, who was diagnosed when he was 9 years old, told us his story. You don’t want to miss it!
“Only 16 months ago, when I was 9 years old, I was told that I had Leukemia. I didn’t know what this was, but now I do because I am 11. At the Hospital Niño Jesús my doctors and nurses are curing me. Now since I am feeling much better, I go to school and I am really happy.
My family, my friends, my school, the Fundación Aladina and their wonderful volunteers have been at my side from the beginning. They have supported, cared for, and rallied together so that I, my parents, and my sister can be strong and fight together against the sickness, always with a smile and bravery.
The aladinos are an important part of what has helped me get through this fight. They gave me the strength to continue on each day!
It makes me happy to think that there are people like you who help kids like me. We love you now and always.
Thank you for everything. BIG hugs.
You are the true superhero, Eloy, and you are so thoughtful! We are sending a huge hug to you and your parents, a pair who have given us more help than we could possibly imagine.
