Paula Durán: Colombian with cancer shows signs of improvement, according to husband – People – Culture
The story of Paula Durán, the 27-year-old from Huila who migrated to California, United States last year, along with her husband, Sergio Vega, and their two daughters, ages 9 and 4, who was diagnosed with cancer at the stomach and brain when she was 34 weeks pregnant and had to undergo emergency surgery, has made national headlines.
Initially, It was revealed that Paula continued to fight for her life while her husband asked the Colombian and United States authorities for a humanitarian visa so that the family of the young woman could accompany her soon, while the doctors assured that the cancer had metastasized, since it had invaded other organs.
Hundreds of Internet users joined the request, who apparently have not only sent messages of support to her and her partner, but also echoed them to capture the attention of the authorities. For its part, the Foreign Ministry reported that it had filed a humanitarian visa application for the relatives of Paula Durán.

Given the situation, Paula sent a message before the cameras addressed to the President of the United States, Joe Biden, who have the last word in the case. “Hello, Mr. President. I want to ask you to please move my parents and my in-laws to the United States so that I can be with their support. Thank you“, he said in a clip shared on Instagram.
Recently, Sergio Vega shared an update on the situation on the same social network. In a video, which has accumulated more than 82,000 views, he pointed out that things were changing for the better in terms of his wife’s health.
