“Our daughter, Ryan, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2008, at the age of 4. She received required treatments at UCLA Medical Center and after she finished her treatment, the family still had to frequent the Los Angeles area for chemo appointments and follow ups. Through a referral from the assigned medical social worker at UCLA, we were turned on to Mendiburu Magic Funds, which were provided in the form of gas cards, lodging assistance and groceries. These were a huge help to defer some of the travel costs of driving back and forth for treatments. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it gets brighter as each day passes, thank you to this foundation” — Kim, Ryan’s Mother
