    Little Girl Needs Help

    SAD TO REPORT - NACKETNA PASSED AWAY IN JULY, 2008 - RIP


    Nacketna, an 11 year old living in the town of Urique, Mexico, located in the deepest canyon in the Sierra Tarahumara, host of the Caballo Blanco Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon, NEEDS OUR HELP.

    She needs a bone marrow transplant. She has donors but needs around $11,000.00 to pay for the procedure. Otherwise, she will be gone in one year or less.

    My dream is to see the ultra running community step in and help this child.

    I would love to see her at the start of all future Caballo Blanco Copper Canyon Ultra Marathons as a symbol of life and love and korima (the Tarahumara word for unconditional giving).

    The above photo is a scan of a flyer that was given to me by her uncle. See translation below. It includes information where to wire funds.

    Let's keep the race alive. Let's help Nacketna and the beautiful people of Urique and our running brothers and sisters of the Sierra Tarahumara. Let's make a beautiful story together!

    Aplastic Anemia occurs when the bone marrow stops making enough blood-forming stem cells.

    This is the disease little Nacketna suffers from. She is currently hospitalized at the General Hospital in Chihuahua City.

    Aplastic Anemia is a grave disease and its treatment is very costly. The medicine Nacketna needs costs around $14,900 USD per dose and requires two doses. If this treatment does not work, Nacketna will need a bone marrow transplant in Monterrey or Mexico City. The bone marrow transplant would cost around $112,000 USD

    This is why we come to you now to ask for your financial support with these medical costs.

    The Dominguez Mariscal family thanks you in advance for your support.
