Although little Juan José had to use an artificial respirator in the first days, he is currently in good health. Yet 27-year-old Paula continues to fight for her life in a California hospital.

Durán received the diagnosis at the end of November, after suffering severe abdominal pain and headache. Due to his pregnancy, the doctors quickly performed several tests that indicated that his cancer was stage IV, so they performed surgery to remove a part of the tumor.

I was like a vegetable, lying down all the time; When I accompanied her to the bathroom, I had to pick her up, so on Monday, November 28, she brought her to the emergency room. We arrived around 8 in the morning and, then, they began to perform tests on her. That same day, at 11 p.m., they gave us the news that she had a tumor, ”said her husband.

Through his social networks, Sergio has shown the process that his family has experienced in recent weeks, during which he has spent most of the time at the medical center accompanying his wife. From there he has requested donations and prayers from his followers.

However, in the last few hours Sergio released some hard news about Paula’s health that the doctors told him: his cancer metastasizedbecause it invaded other organs and is now incurable, so they gave him a month to live.

After hearing this news, the couple thought about returning to Colombia so that Paula could be reunited with her family, but the doctors explained that traveling by plane was not convenient: “They told us that we couldn’t fly that if she did, with the pressure from the height her brain would swell and that could cause her a hernia and die,” Sergio said.

Thus, the couple is requesting help from the governments of both countries so that their relatives can travel to the United States and accompany them during this difficult time.
