“Daddy be strong everything is going t be alright, all Cuba is waiting for you”, wrote today in a message to Cubasí Alejandro Baez, the son of the Cuban doctor recently diagnosed with the Ebola virus while struggling against the disease in Sierra Leone.
“Hello I am Felix’s son. My name is Alejandro”, so begins his comment the youngster who studies in his sophomore year majoring in a Military Medicine School.
In his message Alejandro thanked “all those who one way or another encourages and give hopes to our family and my father” and he “also recognized the health authorities that made possible the immediate treatment my dad received after he was diagnosed and transferred to Geneva to be hospitalized with every means necessary.”
I know everything is going to be alright and in a few months this will be just another story to tell, he said.
“I also want to encourage those who still carry this beautiful work despite the risks that implies and I truly appreciate them for taking care of my dad while I can’t be around, all our hopes are with you. Best regards for all of you. Dad be strong everything is going to be alright, Cuba is waiting for you”. He signs his small but emotional text Ale FCB.
