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 family members received the sad news that Adan’s body had begun to reject the transplant. Medical doctors told them that Adan would have to endure more painful remedies prior to yet another attempt could be made.
Throughout his ordeal, this bright young man, described by those who cared for him as “extremely mature beyond his years,” had just 1 wish: to see his grandfather Jorge who he idolized, but who lived in Puerto Rico. The ordeal had, even so, 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 created arrangements to fly Jorge from San Juan, Puerto Rico to New York City exactly where Adan was undergoing more therapy while awaiting a second transplant.
Sadly, Adan passed away but not before he was able to invest time with his adoring grandfather for the duration of the final week of his life, thanks to the volunteers who produced this touching reunion achievable.
