This month we would like to introduce you to Raúl, a 13-year-old superhero who is fighting like a true champion against Fanconi Anemia. This aladino, who loves sports most of all, is an example to all about overcoming an illness, always filled with energy and positivity.
Below, we will share with you his beautiful story:
“Hello I’m Raúl and I am 13 years old. My parents’ names are Nuria and Pedro and I have 3 sisters: Ana, Marta, and María.
My illness, Fanconi Anemia, was detected when I was just 7 years old, and ever since this moment, we were looking for a bone marrow donor, but because we didn’t find one, I had to take pills that allowed me to live a normal life until a donor could be found.
Later, after my sisters Marta and María were born, we discovered that María was compatible, and I had the bone marrow transplant when I was 12 years old.
Since then I am getting better bit by bit and fighting each day to be 100% healthy.”
Nothing would make us here at Aladina happier than to see our valiant fighter playing once again with his friends. In the time being, we will be here by his side to support him and his family in anything they may need. We love you, Raúl!
