My name is Ines, and my problem was severe abdominal pain, sometimes you can’t have health insurance or resources to pay for these expenses.

At the end of November, I heard on the radio that CSF Surgery Foundation was going to have a health fair where they would have several free health exams, besides that a friend told me that he had already gone to that place and that they had helped him and yes, when I went, I was treated wonderfully. Before going I had called for information and when I heard the voice of the person who answered the phone, it seemed very familiar to me as if I had known her for years, but I could not identify her name, only her voice.

When I went to CSF Surgery, I was referred to Irma from CSF Foundation and she arranged everything for me to go get the free health fair exams. I asked for the lady who had answered the phone, but she was busy, so at that time I couldn’t see her. The next time I went I was able to meet her and yes, she read the word of God in church and that gave me a lot of confidence, I knew she had a good heart.

Finally, they made me an appointment with the specialist because the studies revealed stones in my gallbladder. I want to thank Erick who attended me at CSF for his enthusiasm and human warmth. I am pleased and grateful that I am already operated, I put myself in the hands of God and of all the professionals, they operated me at Bakersfield Adventist Hospital, and the service was warm, all very favorable.

Thank you, CSF, keep helping people, there are many who need you because they don’t have the resources.

I am Rebeca Sánchez and I want to give my testimony. I attended a health fair that CSF Foundation held for the first time in 2018 and they did several studies where they detected problems and I was able to treat them. The health fair was a great help for me to improve my health.

Also, through CSF Surgery I was able to have a hernia operation, it was almost an emergency. At the health fair last year, they found a tumor in the thyroid, now I have just had surgery thanks to Dr. Enriquez, who is an excellent person and as a professional not to mention. They treated me very well everywhere, even at Memorial Hospital, the language was not a problem since they use a translator so that we can understand everything.

I had researched how much the hernia surgery would cost me and it was like $60,000, imagine! And to operate my thyroid, I didn’t even investigate because I knew without a doubt that CSF Surgery was the right place.

Thank you very much for all your attention and the help you gave me from the health fair until now, it is priceless what you do, of great help. Also thank you for all your patience and especially Dr. Enriquez.

My name is Celestino, it all started in 2009 with a small ball on my left arm, I didn’t pay much attention to it. It grew and I decided to go to the doctor. At first, they told me not to worry that it was a ball of meat. But the ball kept growing and since I don’t have health insurance, I couldn’t go to the doctors as much. My salary is $6.00 an hour, I can’t afford insurance, I barely make enough money to live.

Time went by, but 3 years ago I started to feel that it was growing faster and faster. At first it was like a baseball, and it grew larger than a football. I felt pressure on my arm, a lot of pain and cramps.

One year ago, I went to see the doctor and they told me that I needed surgery but that it was going to cost me a lot of money. I went to 3 different hospitals, none of them wanted to treat me, even in a hospital they discriminated against me. When I was in the hospital bed, the nurse was giving me medicine and then the doctor came and said “No, no, no, I already told you that we will not do the operation here” and it was a large hospital where they can do my surgery, But they didn’t accept me and they sent me to another place where the first thing they asked me was also insurance “if you don’t have insurance we can’t help you” they told me.

I went to another hospital where they kept me for 3 days, I thought they were finally going to do the surgery, but they didn’t do anything, finally they told me that they didn’t have a surgeon who would do that type of surgery. They sent me with another letter to the Hospital of UMC, I went and gave them the referral they gave me, but they did not want to help me either. I went to other different places, they all told me that they couldn’t help me, and they gave me phone numbers where to call. I had been suffering and enduring pain. I was desperate because they had told me that I had to remove the tumor since it seemed it was the beginning of cancer, a sarcoma. I work in a restaurant, and it bothered me a lot, when I got close to heat it would start to burn, hurt, and stab sensation.

Thanks to Dr. Edgeworth, she recommended me CSF Surgery, she told me “I want to help you, I know that this tumor is dangerous and growing.” The doctor said that the tumor was close to the heart and that it was going towards the back and through the lungs. She told me about Dr. Enriquez, I had heard about him, she told me that Dr. Enriquez was a very good surgeon, so when I came to visit him and spoke with him, I felt confident and happy.

I want to thank Dr. Jorge Enriquez who finally operated me and the entire team at Cirugía Sin Fronteras and CSF Foundation, who also helped me financially. My surgery was at Memorial Hospital, I was nervous when I arrived, but I saw that everyone was very nice and professional, I was reassured. Soon I will update you on my recovery.
