You're all invited to join us in the celebration of the International Children with Cancer Day and Valentine's Day.
There is no better time to celebrate Valentine's Day than giving a child with cancer a smile and the much needed opportunity to continue his/her much needed treatment.
The children of CANICA in Puerto Vallarta are extending a cordial invitation to their annual breakfast to celebrate International Children with Cancer Day.
This group of 22 children with cancer are celebrating life and the fact that they have such good friends in Puerto Vallarta that always support them and help them with their medical expenses. The expenses are many and the children recognize that without their friends support they would have to interrupt their chemotherapy treatment.
The children of CANICA thank you in advance for your participation in this annual event. This annual breakfast it will take place on the 13th of February at Oscar's restaurant on the River Cuale with a beautiful view of the gardens, river and the ocean.
This will be a buffet breakfast that will be personally supervised by the owner of Oscars, Ms. Lucy Sanchez. Lucy is known for her kindness and amiability that will carry throughout the entire breakfast.
We have a lot of surprises, gifts, raffles and especially the opportunity to meet all these children.
Please buy your tickets in advance at Oscar's restaurant, Carol's boutique on Basilio Badillo and the Salon Alexander in Plaza Marina 25D.
The donation ticked is US$20 or 290 pesos.
Please don't miss this event or the opportunity to help support a child and his/her family during these difficult times.
As sent to PVAngels by Aurora de la Torre who dedicates her time to help the children in the "CANICA Program" of Children with Cancer in Puerto Vallarta:
"We need to raise over USD $48,000.00 per year just to keep the children in the chemotherapy. We pay for them to go to Guadalajara (there is no treatment center in Vallarta) and for special food they need to have as they get very weak after their chemos. We keep getting referrals. At the moment we have a new child 6 years old with Cancer, the poor Mom and 2 other children came from another town and have no furniture, they sleep on the floor. We desperately need a bed, food, clothes.... for this family. Is there anything you can do to help this family. She needs a stroller to carry the 6 year old child, as he is too weak to walk. I know you are an angel, and will make miracles. God bless you."
We ask that you help support these children and their families that are going through this rough period in their lives. We hope that you'll join us on February 13 at 10:00 am for a great breakfast and the opportunity to meet these special children. If you are unable to attend, we are hoping that you will buy a donation ticket anyway.
You can be assured that after you see these precious children you will feel you´ve done a good deed for the day! You are welcomed to bring a gift for a child.
Oscar's Restaurant is located at Isla Rio Cuale #1 by the walking bridge by the ocean that separates Downtown and Old Town Puerto Vallarta.
