The family and friends of Maria Luisa are asking for help to pay medical costs and related expenses. Thank You and God Bless you.

Maria Luisa Colin developed pneumonia about 2 weeks before christmas and was taken to the doctor by her family to get some tests done. As they were at home waiting for the results she fell and hit her head and developed a huge bruise on her face. A few days later, on New Year's Day, she fell into a coma-like state and when the doctor came to see her he said she was in the last stages and she had at most 10-12 hours left to live. He had seen the results of her previous tests ( which had said that she was only breathing with 25% of her right lung) and based on her current condition there was nothing left to do. The family was also told that taking her to the hospital was hardly an option since it was doubtful they would admit her. However, they felt they had to at least try and took her by ambulance to the closest hospital, where they were able to save her. The doctor that saw her upon arrival said if they had waited even an hour longer she wouldn't have made it. The doctor attending her later told the family that he was extremely surprised that she had survived as long as she had seeing as how she hadn't been able to eat in 2 days and was breathing with her heart and stomach because her lungs were so bad off. Also, they determined that when she had fallen she had hit her head hard enough to cause her brain to swell and that caused her coma-like state. She is now making a slow but steady recovery but the family is asking for help to cover the medical expenses. Any help no matter how small is welcome. Thank You and God Bless you.
