Stop by Fiesta Day booth: ‘Hands for Amy’


There will be a booth at Fiesta Day to raise awareness and funds for Amy Martinez, 28, the Canyon Lake mother of two young children who lost her hands and feet to amputation due to sepsis in 2015. Although she has prosthetic legs and feet, the insurance company has denied her claim for prosthetic hands or a hand transplant.

Supporters would like to provide immediate assistance to get Amy and her husband to Pennsylvania for the evaluation of a hand transplant or prosthetics, so they are seeking to raise funds for airlines tickets, hotel and transportation. They would gladly accept donations of airline or hotel points. This would be a first step in fundraising, as the cost of prosthetics or hand transplant are enormous.

To learn more or make a donation, stop by the Fiesta Day booth, visit!amys-journal/cfdq, or call Ron Almada at 951-283-3800.
