My brother Eduardo Davila was working at a building construction and fell off the roof. I saw him falling and entrusted him to God to save his life, in spite of falling from up high. But he continued to fall and broke his neck and fell on the lady who was selling tacos, and she lost the use of her legs after the blow.

Before the New Year, I stumbled and injured tendons in my leg. By the evening the foot got swollen and hurt very much. I was swinging my healthy leg and was afraid of amputation. But then my friend Anna Rocheva came, and she cured my leg with massage. Thanks to Anna and my Guardian Angel for helping me to meet the New Year in good condition.
