And then he went together with our President, Jose Sulaiman and some members of the WBC, Martinez visited “20 DE NOVIEMBRE” ISSSTE Hospital, where they were welcomed by its General Director, Dr. Rafael Navarro Meneses and Carlos Padilla Becerra. Joined by his representative, Sampson Lewcowicz, the WBC champion visited the block of children who suffer from cancer, and delivered toys to them as well as spiritual motivation that will cheer them up so that they keep struggling to get their recovery. Most of the kids, who showed their being enthusiastic and smiling, tried to touch the championship belt of “Marvel”, however, a seven-year old girl, when being asked by the champion if she wanted the belt or a doll, raised her arms and selected the doll….. Martinez put it in the arms of the little girl. The WBC champ stated that never in his life had he had such a deep feeling like the one of having being close to these children who are in serious health conditions, to later on have seen their smiles, so full of faith and joy.
