Children with Cancer Breakfast Fundraiser at Barcelona Tapas

Children with Cancer
November 25, 2014

We want to share a story about Little Monserrat Gutierrez, who has been under the care of the Cancer Center for Children for the last 10 years.

As six months old, Monse (as her family calls her) was diagnosed with Bilateral Retinoblastoma. By age 2 she had eye surgery and Ocular Prosthesis were implanted. She endured lots of pain by the repeated infections on her eyes.

By age nine, Monserrat had to have new Prosthesis to replace the old ones which were, by now, too small for her.

This year in June, Monse had new Ocular Prosthesis implants. She has been under a doctor's care for four months.

Monserrat's dream is to some day play the piano and become a doctor to help other children like her.

We want to especially thank the International Friendship Club for their monetary aid for this surgery, to our monthly sponsorships who prefer to be anonymous, and to our many friends who participated at the March and April CANICA's Breakfast for their gifts to the children. They felt your love!

The CANICA Center for Children with Cancer is inviting everyone to join us for breakfast at the Barcelona Tapas Restaurant on December 3rd at 10:00 am.

Donation tickets are 200 pesos and you can purchase them at Barcelona Tapas (Downtown Vallarta at Calle Matamoros 906) or at Carol's Boutique on Basilio Badillo Street (corner of Vallarta) in Old Town Vallarta.

For reservations, please email auroradelatorrepv@yahoo.com or telephone (322) 293-4777.

Barcelona Tapas will donate 100% of the proceeds.

We will have lots of fun, raffles and door prizes. For donations, please contact the President of the Cancer Center, Mrs. Evelia Basanez at (322) 123-5688.

Thank you for giving these children a chance to survive.
