Sarah Almagro Vallejo's life was turned upside down last July. The 18-year-old had suffered severe abdominal pain, vomiting, and fever. The Costa del Sol Hospital diagnosed Sarah with sepsis, which was causing her organs to fail. She spent ten days in an induced coma. As a consequence of the sepsis, Sarah lost her hands and her feet
Sarah Almagro Vallejo parents Ismael and Silvia, as well as Sarah, Councilor for Social Rights, Isabel Cintado, and Maria Bravo all attended the press conference held in Marbella town hall.
Maria dedicated a few words to the young woman; ''The fact that we are here today is to applaud your strength. You are an example to us all. Through your determination, you make us believe that we can carry forward everything that life brings us. I am very proud of
Ismael words ''We had heard about Maria´s foundation, and in a similar way as when someone talks about quantum physics, we didn´t know much about it, until December 6 th when we met her and we really realized what is behind her and the Foundation. And this is something great Something really, really great. Maria Bravo, her team and the
Foundation is something very big''.
Silvia Sarah´s mother also wanted to thank the affection and commitment of all the people, who for months have been helping her daughter in one way or another, as well as the media, for spreading the word of their struggle so that what happened to Sarah happens to nobody else.
