Maia Asks to Go to the Doctor
What six-year-old asks to go to the doctor? Maia Amador did, and her parents got her in that very day. After some x-rays and CT scans, the doctor told them they hadn’t remotely prepared. The doctor entered and shared the diagnosis. Sarah said, “Cesar yelled ‘Cancer?’ and I left the room”.
As you read this, Maia has just completed her third round of chemo to combat Ewing’s Sarcoma and tolerates it with some nausea but a brave attitude. During a dinner conversation with her cousins and brothers, Mom Sarah said Maia said this about her cancer; “she doesn’t want to do it, but if she has to, she will.” The Amador crew clings to faith, family, and friends to help them endure the challenges before them. The team at Cocktails & Caregivers is in your corner, too!
In addition to the help family and friends provide, Cocktails & Caregivers is providing a $2,000 grant to the Amador family to help cover costs associated with childcare as they focus on caring for Maia.
