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 physique had begun to reject the transplant. Physicians told them that Adan would have to endure a lot more painful remedies prior to an additional try could be produced.
All through his ordeal, this vibrant young man, described by those who cared for him as “extremely mature beyond his years,” had just one particular 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 more therapy even though awaiting a second transplant.
Sadly, Adan passed away but not just before he was able to invest time with his adoring grandfather throughout the final week of his life, thanks to the volunteers who made this touching reunion achievable.
