Jorge Machain

jorgeJorge is a local 7 year old boy that knows all too well the inside of a hospital. This is his second time with liver cancer. His first diagnosis was when he was 5, and now his liver sarcoma has returned. Just this past August when he went in for a check up they had found a large sarcoma in his liver and immediately went into action. Something that was all too familiar after only a year of remission.

Jorge loves to play just like any other 7 year old boy! He loves to fish, shoot his BB gun, ride horses, play video games, and run around his family’s property with his little brother Hernan. He is OBSESSED with Spider Man and wants to be a pediatrician when he grows up specializing in infants…I mean, how adorable is that?!

I love being able to spend time with him and his family. They are the kindest people and so hard working. They have lots of goats and chickens that they use for milk and eggs which helps Jorge’s mom out as she tries to feed him organic foods. His treatment is 5 hours away and he has to get treatment twice a month; after multiple rounds of chemo he will soon be having surgery to remove his tumor. It astounds me that when I was in their home there wasn’t a heaviness that filled the rooms. They were laughing and welcoming. No hard heartedness from this terribly difficult life circumstance, but instead beautiful vulnerability and bravery. This family is another that is very deserving of love and support. With his mom leaving her job to take care of all of his needs, the travel, organic foods, treatments, hotels, and more this all really adds up. I cannot wait to be able to love on them emotionally and financially through this journey. Would you join me? Would you be a part of this community that stands with Jorge as he fights for his life for his second time?
