Radio-based fundraiser being held for Robert Perez
People on La Isla Bonita may remember when in September 2015 8 year-old, Katerin Michelle Perez, suffered from third degree burns. Through the kind efforts of the community, Perez was able to undergo treatment at Shriner’s Burn Hospital for Children in Boston, USA. Unfortunately, the family has been hit with more bad news, as her father Robert Perez was recently diagnosed with kidney cancer. On Friday, July 29th, a radio-based fundraiser will begin at 7:30AM via Reef Radio 92.3 FM to help raise funds to assist his medical needs.
The Perez Family currently needs $20,600BZ to undergo surgery, and follow-up treatment in Mexico. Perez, who was the primary breadwinner for the household, is unable to work at the moment, and cannot support his family of six.
If you wish to make a donation to Perez, you can call Reef Radio, located on Pescador Drive, at 226-4054.
