Spanish Community Engagement

Urea Cycle Dsiorder Mom

Lupe lives in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois with her husband Nick and daughter Isabel. She was a bilingual social worker before becoming a stay at home mom to care for Isabel’s medical need after being diagnosed with a Urea Cycle Disorder.

Isabel was diagnosed with OTC in 2010 after suffering from liver failure for more than 7 months. Lupe is passionate about advocating for Urea Cycle Disorders to help bring awareness to our Spanish speaking friends in the community.

She has graciously agreed to help as Spanish Community Engagement representative and will be handling our Spanish social media and Spanish translation for our future events.
