Anahi is 11 years old and is sponsored through our Chalice sponsor site in Arica, Chile.
Chalice Critical Needs - Medical assistance for Anahi, ChileShe has had stomach problems for two years and has just recently been diagnosed with colon cancer. She needs an operation but the doctors say that they need more tests before that can take place. She will have to leave Arica to have these tests but that will be paid for by the State.

In the meantime, doctors say that because of her condition, she should be sleeping and spending her time in a room away from others to prevent her from contracting any cold or other sickness. This is not possible in her home since her mother and brother sleep in the same room with her.

The only reasonable solution is to construct a separate room for Anahi where she can be away from unnecessary contact with others and maintain a sterile environment. She is also required to have a milk-making machine and the nuts to prepare the milk, as well as a supply of special food that will enable her to maintain a vegan diet. The cost of the prefabricated room, milk-making machine and a year's supply of nuts and vegan foods, is estimated to be $4,857.91. The family is unable to cover any of these costs.

Our sponsor site director has come to Chalice to provide the financial assistance to help the family with this urgent need.
