Scottsdale, Arizona, January 20, 2014 – With tears of joy and heartache, Jorge Bertolomei-Colon describes his love for his gravely ill grandson, Adan Maradiaga. The 14-year-old was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML) last February. He received a bone-marrow transplant from his older sister in June, but his household received the sad news that Adan’s body had begun to reject the transplant. Physicians told them that Adan would have to endure a lot more painful treatments just before an additional try could be made.
All through his ordeal, this bright young man, described by those who cared for him as “really mature beyond his years,” had just a single want: to see his grandfather Jorge who he idolized, but who lived in Puerto Rico. The ordeal had, however, taken a toll on the family’s finances and they could not afford to bring Jorge to see Adan in New York.
With a request from Adan’s case manager, Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance produced arrangements to fly Jorge from San Juan, Puerto Rico to New York City exactly where Adan was undergoing far more therapy although awaiting a second transplant.
Sadly, Adan passed away but not just before he was able to invest time with his adoring grandfather in the course of the last week of his life, thanks to the volunteers who produced this touching reunion achievable.
