Life can change at the blink of an eye

This is my friend Cecilia, a few of days ago, she was involved in a horrible and tragic accident, the accident occurred due to a gasoline explosion that turned into a rapid and destructive fire. Cecilia and her friend Danny were taken to a hospital with very severe burns. As a result of this terrible accident Cecilia has 2nd and 3rd degree burns on her legs, torso and arms. She’s had 3 operations and is in urgent need of 3 more in order to regenerate her body’s skin, and she’ll have to wait a long and painful time to recover, not to mention the expenses this also involves. Tragically Danny had burns on 90% of his body and died 2 days after. In a matter of a second their life changed completely. . None of them had medical insurance as they both are foreigners in our country, she is from Argentina, and Danny was from Canada. All of our friends and the community of Puerto Morelos got together to support her spiritually and also economically organizing music events to raise money for her surgeries and also to rally community help to support our young friend in her dire time of need. An ACCIDENT could happen anytime to anyone, it was amazing how strangers and friends helped without judging, without barriers, only to do good for a person that this day needed us more than ever. As I’m writing this I’m exploding with emotions, I love to be part of this community, I’m proud to be Puerto Morelense.

Ella es mi amiga Cecilia, hace unos dias ocurrió un terrible accidente en Puerto Morelos. La palapa donde vivía Ceci se incendió debido a un acccidente con Gasolina, ella y su amigo Danny  resultaron con quemaduras graves y fueron trasladados a un hospital en Cancun. Cecilia tiene quemaduras de 2do y 3er grado en las piernas, el abdomen y ambos brazos. Tuvo 3 cirugias y le faltan aun 3 mas para poder regenerar la piel de nuevo. Desgraciadamente Danny con el 90 % del cuerpo con quemaduras fallecio a los dos dias. Su vida cambió en un segundo por completo… Ninguno de ellos tenia seguro medico internacional, ella es de Argentina y Danny era de Canada. Los amigos y la comunidad de Puerto morelos, nos unimos en un intento por ayudar a ceci con los gastos medicos, organizamos eventos con musica, rifas, recaudacion de donativos, fue impresionante como amigos y extraños ayudaron, sin juzgar, sin barreras, solo por el hecho de ayudar a una persona que necesitaba la ayuda. Un accidente le puede ocurrir a cualquiera y la verdad me siento muy orgullosa de ser parte de esta comunidad.
