During these past months, 81 low-income rheumatic patients received support from Fundacion Maritere to cover expenses for medical treatment and diagnosis. Two of them were supported to get medical testing to diagnose the specific kind of rheumatic disease they have got. This is very important because in Mexico, few low income patients can get access to this kind of studies and lose very much time to get a specific diagnosis, which prolongs the illness and its syntoms. Through this support, patients are able to start improving their quality of life, by reducing pain, gaining movement, gaining strength and faith. Thus, they improve emotionally too. The cost of this attention is valued in more than 5,000 USD.
