Ivonne has influenced the lives of many, including her husband of 26 years, her two daughters, her friends, and hundreds of children that have learned the fundamentals of life in her classrooms.
An exceptional teacher
She started her professional career as a special education teacher in her home country, Venezuela, where she instructed many children with learning disabilities. Her compassion, unorthodox methods, and the sweetness of her smile helped hundreds of these children develop vocational abilities.
Years later she moved to Los Angeles in order to support of her husband who was completing a masters degree in Theological studies. She became a certified teacher in California with a focus on Pre-K to Kindergarten students and spread love in every classroom she worked. Her commitment gained the admiration of parents and colleagues alike. Today, some of her students, their parents, and colleagues are life-long friends.
She never gives up
Five years ago, Ivonne started fighting the degenerative effects of Polycystic Kidney Disease. She had to stop working. The disease has limited her mobility and has been receiving dialysis treatment since January 2016. The time is running out but she still fighting.
There is hope
A double-organ transplant of liver and kidney is the only option she has.
If you would like to give life and express your love
in a practical and compassionate way, this is your chance
We come to you in full humility to plea for your help. If you know Ivonne, you are aware of how hard this process has been for her and her family. If you do not know her yet, we still appeal to your generous spirit and hope that you have the opportunity to know her in a near future.
