We need your help! Along with the Diocese of Dallas and UT Southwestern Medical system - YCP will be partnering to support the treatment of a fellow young Catholic coming all the way from Honduras. On April (date), Mirian Henriquez will arrive in Dallas where she will commence treatment, after a severe car-accident left Mirian without the use of her arms, as the extent of the injury required amputation. Treatment in Dallas will focus on fitting Mirian with prosthetic arms, as well as the physical therapy required for adjustment. This treatment will not only improve Mirian's quality of life, but allow her the independence necessary to continue working for the church.
While great strides have been made in attaining all the necessary legal and medical requirements, there are aspects of the project that still need support. One key component is the logistics surrounding transportation of Mirian and her sister. This is one very easy way in which we can support this group effort. Perhaps on your way to work, or during a lunch break, drivers are needed to help transport Mirian to and from appointments.
YCP is proud to support the Mirian Project, and to show its full support it will award a full-years YCP membership to the top three contributors, as well as recognition at the July YCP Speaker Event series.
Please mark April 22nd on your calendar as the kick-off for the Mirian Project effort. This campaign will run from April 22nd To June 14th. If you or anyone you know would like to donate of your time to her Mirian's support, please let us know by emailing us or noting on the sign-up sheet your availability.
