Meet Dora

Dora was a perfectly healthy 7-year-old until she contracted a virus 6 months ago.  Due to lack of proper diagnosis and medication, she now remains permanently paralyzed from the neck down.  This sweet little girl communicates by blinking her eyes.

Her other 3 younger siblings currently live in Saipan and desperately need to be reunited with their mom and sister who will now remain in San Diego.  Although Dora is currently in Rady Children’s Hospital, there is nothing more they can do for her and she will be released as soon as her mom can raise enough funds to rent a small apartment. This family will need long-term assistance for rent, food, utilities and clothes.
