Our beloved native Cuencano J.T. Neira, founder of the Gringo Book Club and community organizer of the graffiti removal project in the historic center, needs heart surgery. J.T. has multiple stents and had a heart attack in the past. He is trying to raise $10,000 to help pay for the cost of the surgery and care. His wife Betty is a valued medical facilitator to gringos here in Cuenca. Both are very special people.
Here is the message from J.T.:
After several months under costly medical treatment, the doctors team decided that the only solution to the problems is a surgical procedure which must be performed before November 20th. Given the complexity and the possibility of unexpected situations, my wife and myself do not have enough resources to face the bills and are appealing to your solidarity in this time of urgency.
Thank you and may God Bless you.
