Gabriel Martinez is a little warrior fighting for his life. This beautiful boy is stronger than we could ever imagine. Gabriel, at only 17 months, began to feel horrible stomach pains, to which doctors discovered a Mesenteric cyst obstructing his intestines. Doctors performed his first, and then second and third surgery, removing sections of his intestines. By his last surgery, Gabriel only had 10% of his intestines and fell into a coma.
Doctors expected him to last no longer than 72 hours. However, this little warrior had more fight in him and awoke from his coma. Gabriel came to Miami and has been under treatment receiving nutrition intravenously.
International Kids Fund supports the family in their fundraising efforts and opened an account in Gabriel’s name. Please open your heart and give this brave little boy a fighting chance. Your contribution can help save his life.
Gabriel underwent a successful STEP surgery and is doing well. However, his journey is not over, he still needs to receive Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) to help him in his recovery to a healthy future. Please continue supporting his treatment.
