Mark, Joe, Fabiola talked to Blanca this afternoon and was told if we can get some clear copies of the results from the trip to San Luis she will forward them to Manos De Ayuda in Tucson. There is a good chance Manos DE Ayuda will give us the device at a huge discount or possibly even free. My email with the results looks good, Mark can I email you these and see if they are clear enough for Blanca to forward to Tucson?

This is great news... Blanca told me this Sunday morning at breakfast... I have also been talking with Patricio & his wife from "Manos de Ayuda", they have a door for a house that is being built in the barrio San Rapheal and they also have a cement mixer to donate to the community center (to use when we build homes), but like always we need transportation from Tucson...

Bill... I think I have the email you sent but please send it again... if I remember the size of the photos was really big and when I shrunk it it wasn't as clear... Bill... Can you print or copy the originals???

Naomi and I are in for 100 as promised Mark do I know where you live? Can I just take a c note to you?
Thank you Russ & Naomi... sure you can drop by with a c note later sometime... and I know where you live you can't run away...

Mark....Bill had sent me a copy of the test results, and I printed them out at a reasonable size. I just did some enhancing of the files in Photoshop, converted them to pdf. Mark, they are in your prodigy email.....

Joe we need to get together over some coffe and get some ideas on a flyer for the Concert as well.. The guys have been booked and paid... this is going to be a great concert. by the way we had a total of 6 nights of rentals for the month of March. I will have Michelle figure out how many dollars will be coming your way.

Joe, Rob and Mark, You guys have done something beyond the call of duty, on behalf of Maria,Thanks alot. P.S. she has lost her job at the Mayan and I am not sure how she is going to get by. But thats a different problem.

Bill....trying to avoid the "pat on the back" some of this things can become...but all I did was to stir the pot a bit....I guess I have the rep for that on here. There are several people who have worked very hard on the matter, some quietly in the background.....prominent have been Rob(AZROB) and his wife Michelle, and Mark(Seadweller) and his wife Barb.....and there has been considerable generosity from many with the raffle prizes that have been provided!

Most of the people on here don't know what you and Fabiola did...with taking Ximena and Maria to San Luis for the testing, the stay overnight, and even running her around town trying to find out where and how to get the testing done....PLUS kicking in a BUNCH of $$ for the actual testing, the transportation, food, etc.

I received some AWESOME News this morning in an email from mi amigo Harold a.k.a. trade

Quoting Harold, "Kathy & I brought Ximena's test results back to the US, we showed them to St Andrews Clinica and they are willing to help her."

Will update as more info comes in...

Mark...any more info? I think that the St. Andrews Clinic people misunderstood the help she needs. A hearing aid will not help her. She needs a device to stimulate her auditory nerve for a year, and then surgery.

Joe... I think they are calling the device that stimulates the cochlear nerve a hearing aid... I will check into it more and post what I find out on here...

Marand Joe, when I talked to Laurie at St. Andrews, I also think there was a misunderstanding, because she was talking about hearing aids.

Blanca, with LA ESPERANZA PARA UNA NUEVA VIDA called this afternoon, she has arranged a visa for Jimena to cross the border on 1-05-2012 so she can be fitted with the device in Nogales, Arizona for FREE at St. Andrews Childrens Clinic. We only need transportation, lodging and food money. Jimena will be 1 of probably a couple hundred kids from Mexico, the clinic will attend to that day. I only hope they read the results from San Luis correctly. Thats some really good news.

Yes Bill, this is good news... Blanca stopped by this morning and told us the same news... I wonder if there is a way to contact St. Andrews Clinic to check and see if they are correctly reading the results from San Luis... I will be seeing Blanca this weekend and I will double check with her and also see if she has a case number to refer to when seeking info about Ximenas case, so we can follow up and confirm with St. Andrews Childrens Clinic...

Bill we have appx 100 people already RSVP'd for the concert, with all of the raffle tickets RPJoE and Mark have sold as well as AZDAN's commitment to sale a bunch of tickets we should have a good start. Look forward to seeing everyone at the party.. Shame Ximena and Maria cant make it up for the party...I also talked to Maria last friday when I was down. Kinda hard to talk to someone when every time she says thankyou she starts to cry...

Great news Bill...I also hope that they're reading the test results correctly...however....the cost of hearing aids is not that much less than the price quoted for that device the San Luis doctor said she needed.....

:gradea::party::party::party::party::party::party::party::party::party::party::party::party::lobster: The concert is just somthing that started out of the blue to help out a little girl with hearing loss. Did I think it would take on this type of magnitude absolutely not. Michelle and I came up with an idea sat down with Mark then with Bill and Joe over at Max's one morning and said wouldn't it be cool if we could get 75 people to show up. A few post later and tons of comments both good and bad and here we are a few days from the event. There will be alot of people to thank when this is over and expect a full report on Saturday or Sunday morning. The issue is a few people have offered to donate items and we have yet to see them but I am sure they will come thru in the end. As it stands I think final count is 6 condos, Complete open water scuba class, Brand new bike (some kinda hybrid) from Rc. Bicycles, Awesome wine and cheese basket from Angela and Scott Scriver, 2 custom Skim boreds from Tracy boreds (these are the ones you see at Sharkbite and round town), food gift certificates for down south and up north. So if you are going to be anywhere in the northeren hemisphere you should do your best to make it to the party. Money will go towards a good cause and you can listen to some great music from Mark Mulligan, Sam Rainwaterm And the awesome haromonica player John Creed.
