Our patients all live in Mexico and come from disadvantaged families. Either the family cannot afford the medical care needed or Mexican doctors have given up hope on the children. We see patients with a variety of debilitating medical conditions; for example, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, blindness, hearing loss, brittle bones disease, club foot, etc. This section of our Web site will show you the variety of patients we see. Most of our patients live in Nogales or other parts of Sonora, but some come from as far away as Mexico City. We see patients from age 1 month to 18 years. Here are 6 of our patients.
