Luis Angel

This is the time of the year we celebrate Thanksgiving Day.

The Puerto Vallarta Women´s Association has many Friends to thank for their support to our 27 Children in the Cancer Center in Puerto Vallarta.

Luis Angel, a beautiful 9 year old boy, an honor student who loved sports is so lucky to have survived after beeing hospitalized for four months in Guadalajara.

A tumor on his head has paralyzed the right side of his body.
He came back to Puerto Vallarta and needed a wheelchair, which was donated by our Friends at The International Friendship Club.

His one room home was painted thanks to the American Legion who came to his aid, brought running wáter into the house, electricity, two fans, and built a roof for their kitchen.

These things were necesary for a healthier and safer environment for our beloved Luis Angel and his family.

Luis Angel continues traveling to Guadalajara 3 or 4 times a month for his Cancer treatment.

Special thanks to all our Friends for providing an opportunity for these children to survive.

You can join us at our first Thanksgiving Dinner, to benefit the Puerto Vallarta Children with Cancer.
