11-year-old cancer fighter named Dulce and her family need your prayers and support.

Dulce’s situation is very unique in that she has experienced 4 major health issues at such a young age. First, she was born with Down syndrome which will impact her mentally and physically for her entire life. On top of that, she was diagnosed with leukemia a few years ago. Next, she recently contracted COVID-19 which caused her immune system to go into attack. Dulce began to feel sicker and weaker so her doctor’s ordered a bone marrow biopsy. Last month, she was diagnosed with a rare form of life-threating immune system cancer called, Hemophagocytic Lymphohistocytosis (HLH).


Dulce is currently in the hospital fighting for her life. Her family is also very spiritual and has asked for prayers. Also, her parents are facing large medical bills and lost income caused by COVID and Dulce’s cancer diagnosis. 

Please make a donation of any amount to help Dulce and her family! Thank you for your support!
