< BACK TO PATIENTS
José Andrés was born to a healthy young mother who dreamed of having a child after studying and working as a teacher. She had no reason to suspect that he would be born with medical problems, but at 5 months of age he was diagnosed with epilepsy, cataracts in both eyes, and developmental delays. His mother learned about the Rosa Vera Fund when he was almost 4 years old. We were confident that we could help him and knew that his mother would devote her time and energy to his care. His seizures are now well controlled and we provide his mother with support for his therapies and specialty care so that he can reach his potential.
