The mother assures that the doctors did not give him much hope and that the only thing that would save her son’s life would be a miracle from God.

“We motivated my son to follow the ranks of the Army, Since he was little he had the illusion of wearing a uniform and that is why my mother and I decided to talk to him so that he would serve the country, and we did not get anything because we sent him, it was for an abyss ”, added the mother.
