For the past 14 years Maria's family has been involved with a foundation called The Mercedes Rubi Foundation which helps with the Neurological Center in Puerto Rico for Endovascular surgery. The reason for this foundation was my own experience when I suffered an aneurism in a brain artery and there was no equipment in Puerto Rico at that time to help me with this critical situation. I had surgery in the US which was a success. At that moment the family decided to donate that equipment to the Medical Center of Puerto Rico in order to save lives. We named the Foundation after our Mother Mercedes Rubi who taught us to be generous at all times. Since 2002 I am in charge of the Foundation and at the present we have several equipments for the endovascular surgeries performed at Centro Medico. We were able to obtain annual funds from the Legislature of Puerto Rico as a result of the successful operation of the Foundation and the commitment to save lives.
