I hope you all are doing great. I'm Jesús Morales, I'm 27 years old and I'm from Venezuela. I'm writing this post for two reasons.
The first one: my mother suffers from rheumatoid arthritis. She's 56 years old and she was diagnosed with this disease about
8 years ago. As soon as she was diagnosed with this disease, she started receiving monthly the medicines (Enbrel - Etanercept) she needed from the goverment (when the medicines are very expensive, there are agreements that stablish that the goverment must subsidize these medical treatments and you obtain it by no cost). In the present time, it is getting really hard to obtain these medical treatments in Venezuela. In fact, she has not received the medicines for 5 months and we cannot pay for it by buying it at Colombia (the nearest country to Venezuela) or anyway because it's really really expensive. By now, I'm living in Santiago, Chile. I had to move because of all the situation in my country.
The second reason, and the most important i think: I'd like to know if there are organizations that can help me to get this medical treatment (or some equivalent) by donating it for my mom. It's really breaking my heart this situation in my country, but for now there is nothing we can do to change it, and is getting harder and harder every day.
I would really aprecciate it and I'd be very greatful if someone could help me and could help my mom. She's everything to me and I don't want to see her suffering again.
