This is the Esperanza Velasquez Transplant Fund. The funds will be used for Esperanza's medical costs not covered by insurance.

In October 2011, during a routine gall bladder removal, Esperanza's doctors found irregularities in her liver. After numerous tests, she was given the diagnosed of liver cancer.

Esperanza has since endured over 5 months of chemotherapy to slow the growth of the cancer, and has been placed on the transplant list at the University of Birmingham (UBA).

This crisis has taken quite a toll on the Velasquez family, emotionally and financially, although Esperanza's spirits remain high. The estimated cost of the transplant is $500,000, and her insurance plan has already been exhausted by her chemotherapy and pre-translant treatments.
