It was 2011, a time when no one imagined that we were going to experience a pandemic, and Peruvians were connected to the national transmission of the Telethon, the day to help raise funds that go directly to the Hogar Clínica San Juan de Dios. To the surprise of many, the host Magaly Medina made her first appearance at the charity event on behalf of her television house, ATV (channel 9).
The popular ‘Urraca’ was received to applause by the young people who were on stage. She stood in the center between her colleague Federico Salazar and the remembered actor Ricky Tosso. During his speech as one of the “anchors” of the Telethon, Medina narrated a passage of his life that few knew.
She expressed the importance that San Juan de Dios had in the treatment of her sister Mariella, who suffered from poliomyelitis or polio. “It is the first time that I conduct a Telethon, but I know closely the work of the Hogar Clínica San Juan de Dios. As a child, my sister had Polio when we lived in Huacho and we had to transfer her to Lima for treatment. I must say that thanks to ‘San Juan de Dios’ my sister is today a great professional ”, commented at that time the host of Magaly TV La Firme.
Of the aforementioned day, Magaly made the first donation on behalf of her entire family. “I had to live it, so, on behalf of my beloved sister and the Medina Vela family, I make the first donation of the night.”
