Stories with values and heart

But if there is a story of our collaborator and friend Pilar Holguín that one cannot miss, that is undoubtedly the story of Yago , a small miracle who was detected a cancer a few months after birth , and who has passed his first five years of life in a hospital. Could there be a place less suitable for children than a hospital? The question is difficult and painful to answer, but it is curious how sometimes children have a much greater strength than adults and face the problems of life with much more integrity and without losing hope, and that is the case of Yago, who dreamed from his hospital bed of being a firefighter and the strength of his dreams has allowed him to enjoy his now 6 years at home, in his true home.

Yago’s mother transmitted her son’s experience to Pilar, how the firefighters from Madrid came to visit him, like many other children from the same and other hospitals, and how his desire to become one of them filled him with strength and hopes for getting out of the disease.

Now Pilar tells us her story in the form of a story, Yago wants to be a firefighter (available in the second book “The world of my little heroes”), and hopefully it reaches a lot of people and can become an example of hope and improvement.
