Hola. This is a request for financial assistance for our volunteer ambulance driver, Francisco.
Over a year ago, Francisco started/got a hernia while lifting a drowning victim off the beach. He felt the injury just as he picked up his end of the stretcher. Francisco had provided resusitation and CPR and the person had responded before being carried to our then functioning ambulance.
After our ambulance quit, Francisco retrofitted his van so as to keep providing ambulance type service to this area. His hernia kept growing as he kept delivering water or picking up injured or ill people. One young boy from Los Ingenios was saved after falling off a makeshift plank bridge on his bike. He had to be carried up from the arroyo. According to the treating physician, the boy survived his head injuries because Francisco and his crew got him to medical care in time.
So, to make the story short, Francisco finally had to get operated on. He has volunteered providing emergency service for many, many years. Two years ago he got the training and license in Guadalajara to drive our ambulance. Now, he needs our help.
Francisco supports his family by working in construction and running a small water delivery business. He needs our help to cover some medical expenses and for support while he recovers.
