THE LITTLE RED HAT RICARDO sign now

Ricardo runs without stopping for a park in San Jose. With its five years, energy will overflow. Confused with the other little playing in the same environment. Only his red woolen cap reveals the problem. He was born with several sequels by infection (Escherichia coli), transmitted by his mother and was not treated during pregnancy. He wilted various body tissues, including three quarters of the scalp.
More than ten operations and several skin grafts later, the huge scars and no hair on your head remember that there is still a small but great way to go. Although his parents are trying by all means put it at least a little easier. "Who would do everything possible for your child?" Asks Emma Guerrero, the boy's mother.
A year ago they heard on television in Valencia was practicing a technique that allows for gradually stretching the healthy tissue and cover the damaged skull base. "There we attended Dr. Cavadas and told us there would be no problem in applying it to Ricardo. They even said it was better now than when he was older. He was the one who offered it by social security if we derived from Zaragoza, "says Ricardo Báez, while teaching one of the reports that Dr. Valencia filled for his fellow Children's Hospital, where he was treated his son since his birth.
However, did not get the response they expected service Aragon Plastic Surgery Center. "The doctors here told us we could not be derived because it was a vital necessity. That same, with 14 or 15 years could do them. And the only chance they gave us was to put a wig during that time, "recalls Emma. "Do you really think that knowing that there is a possibility of treatment for my 5 year old son and I will wait until then to take toupee? My son can not swim in the pool, or give you the sun, must always go with hat ...», adds.

Decided to seek the money through a loan and pay the cost of the operation in a private clinic in Valencia, where Dr. Cavadas make that same technique. "Banks are not easy to put us, we were told it was easier to give us money to buy a car, for the treatment of my child. The car they could get, "says Emma.

Already has three operations in Valencia, week after week, they have to travel with your little one to the revisions. They paid nearly 30,000 euros. "We did not want to be treated in Valencia, but we have no choice. Why do not already here?, Why give me a solution here and here, no? I guarantee a good future for my son. Have you thought about the psychological consequences it could have on all these years with his head in those conditions? "Asked the mother.

For now, his lawyer, Antonio Muñoz, has filed a complaint against administrative Aragonés Health Service asking that they pay the cost of treatment. For his part, Health recognizes that you can do the same in Aragon, but "the clinical criteria for treatment advise waiting." "I wonder what would they have done if your child were in this situation," Emma concludes.
