Update: Cecilia Still Needs Help

This is an update to the prior blog, posted on Feb 20th

The following is a partial excerpt from a website that has been set up to track Cecilia's recovery

On February 18th a terrible accident took place in Puerto Morelos, Mexico.
Cecilia León and her friend Danny Rippe were at home in their little palapa in Puerto Morelos, the accident occurred due to a gasoline explosion that turned into a rapid and destructive fire. They were taken to a hospital in Cancun, Mexico with very severe burns.

As a result of this terrible accident Cecilia has 2nd and 3rd degree burns on her legs, torso and arms. She’s had 3 operations and is in urgent need of 3 more in order to regenerate her body’s skin, and she’ll have to wait a long and painful time to recover, not to mention the expenses this also involves.

Tragically Danny had burns on 90% of his body and died on Saturday 20th at 12:00 pm. In a matter of a second their life changed completely.

Donations are still being accepted for Cecilia's ongoing treatment and hospitalization.  Interested in making a donation?  Contact Catriona Brown of the El Munda Para Puerto Morelos Charity.
