The family of Francisco Ramirez would greatly appreciate any donations to help offset the cost of his eye surgeries and travel expenses.

Francisco is 24 years old and suffers from chronic retinal detachment. He suffered his retinal detachment in 2006 and was unable to have the surgery at the time for insurance reasons. He only works seasonally as a farm laborer and I work full time year round. He has had 1 surgery this year and is in need of a minimum of 2 more. The first surgery was mostly successful but do to scar tissue a 2nd & 3rd surgery are needed to remove it and reset his retina and remove oil from the 2nd surgery. Each surgery is estimated at about $24,000, and the surgeons Dr. Nash and Dr. Singh at Vitreoretinal Associates in Washington have agreed to waive their portion of fees for the surgery. His insurance coverage will end December 2012 and our family doesn't qualify for state assistance. We are left with having to cover for this year’s 2 surgeries the rest of our Insurance deductible, Hospital facility fees & Anesthesiologist fees, Gas (we have to make about 2 trips a month), Food, Hotel & Medication.

If you would like to mail a check please contact us at for mailing information.
Thank you,
Vitalina & Francisco Ramirez
