“Thanks for helping me bring my child into the world”


DoraDora Maridueña, is a smiling 18 year-old who unfortunately suffers from acute lymphoblastic leukemia (a type of blood cancer). Dora is facing this reality with the emotional support of her mate. Her father reacted negatively to the news about the son she was expecting, but finally obtained his support. Her mother died of cancer five years ago so there is no support from her. At the moment Dora is happy and grateful to God for the arrival of her son Liam Adriel. Both Dora and little Liam received care, free of charge in the Enrique C. Sotomayor Gynaeco-Obstetric Hospital of La Junta de Beneficencia de Guayaquil. Today Liam Adriel constitutes the will and motivation for Dora to beat cancer.
