A MARBELLAN surfer has tragically lost her hands and feet and needs your help to recover.
Specsavers Opticas Marbella is asking Olive Press readers to get behind their campaign to help raise €200,000 for the quadruple amputee.
Sarah Almagro Vallejo, 18, was rushed to hospital on July 23 last year with severe abdominal pains and a fever, the result of a Meningococcal septicaemia that caused a coma, kidney failure and forced the amputation of her hands and feet.
The high-street opticians, situated on Ricardo Soriano, will now be selling bracelets bearing the words ‘Palante con Sarah’ for €2.50.
The Marbella local has become a social media sensation with over 11,000 followers, and her hashtag campaigning aims to purchase advanced prosthetic limbs.
Sarah posts regular updates about her life after the tragic infection, but maintains a dogged determination to keeping looking forward, or ‘palante’.
