Daniel Tellez lives in the shadows. That’s because the 18-year-old is going blind. Claudia, his younger sister, is going blind too. They also both suffer from epilepsy, and live with their widowed mother in heart-breaking poverty.
After scraping together a loan, their mother finally brought Daniel and Claudia to visit a doctor last year. The doctor recommended a treatment plan to arrest the condition, but could not get further financial assistance. Unable to pay for the treatments, they returned home and their condition worsened.
Heaven’s Family founder David Servant, along with missionary partners Jason and Nicole Fitzpatrick, met the family for the first time a few weeks ago when David was in Mexico (you can read his report by clicking here).
In response to their sad situation, Heaven’s Family would like to send Daniel and Claudia to the children’s hospital in Puebla, Mexico. Transportation, medical tests and doctors fees will cost about $350. If you would like to contribute to the Critical Medical Needs Fund to help, please click the blue button below.
