Belen Polo is a 16 year old girl who was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer, the product of a tumor located in the thalamus.
On December 26, 20222 she had an operation at Temuco Regional Hospital, but the doctors were unable to completely remove the tumor. In February 2023 she had her first oral Temozolomide chemotherapy treatment and 30 radiotherapy sessions.
Belen recently received a response from a hospital in the United States to take her and obtain a basic treatment for a clinical trial. Her family says that it is an opportunity to continue the battle and save her life, but the cost of stay is very expensive and they need our solidarity to get there.
We are helping support and raise the necessary funds for Belen's stay in the US.
