(Press Release in text format following e-mail message.)
To whom it may concern,
I am writing to you to today in the hopes of an important and life-changing mention through your media outlet. Recently, on July 18th my best friend María Carmona experienced a serious and life-threatening hemorrhagic stroke while visiting her family in Venezuela. She is a young single mother. She is currently being treated in an area of Venezuela where the level of medical care she needs is incredibly scarce, and due to it's demand, is incredibly expensive, yet necessary in order for her survival.
Due to this, a GoFundMe fundraiser has been created by her family. The funds raised from this will ensure she has a chance to receive the level of care she needs in order to live. She will have very little chance of survival without this fundraiser!
She will only have a fighting chance to live through the success of this GoFundMe fundraiser and help from the Press & Media.
Please consider publishing this story for María. She is the light of many people's lives, but especially her daughter. It's only possible with your help. I have attached a press release (text format) below this message.
Press release below in text format. Thank you for your time.
