Photo Diary – September 04, 2012 at 08:23PM

I’ll be honest… I don’t like posting pictures like this. Not because I find anything wrong with this beautiful young lady, but because I fear people will turn away. I remember once I wanted to post a picture on my newsletter of a child with a cleft palate and my friend said, “you can’t put that picture on the cover!” And I said, “why not? he’s smiling!” But after that, I sometimes need to “censor” the images that I’ve seen because it’s often “too much” to look at by “normal standards.”
Tanya here is a beautiful young lady. Unfortunately, she’s not fortunate enough to eat a regular meal. She is very sick and eats through a feeding tube. She is 18 years old and weighs 15 kilograms. BUT! she has fought to live …. and she will not give up!!

She requires the formula Nestle Peptamen just like our princess Margarita. If you want to contribute to her formula, you can read about Margarita and her own fight to live. http://mayashope.org/2012/07/01/margarita-fights-to-live/ via Maya’s Hope – on Facebook
