I was in PVR at the end of March. I was in contact with Pam before I left and dropped off some medical supplies at the Cornerstone Hospital. She no longer works there but was happy to pick up the donations there because it was convenient for me. On my return, she sent me an e-mail and was very grateful for the supplies, especially the diabetes testing equipment I donated. She has started her own business but I don't recall the name. Something to do with arranging medical services for travellers to PVR. The e-mail address I have for her is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope that helps. She certainly is a good resource for everything PVR! One of her recommendations for silver jewelery is Roberto in the marketplace in old PVR. He has very good silver, good prices, and will give a discount if you know Pam.
We will be going to PV in December with our two children. Each of my girls have a close friend that has Juvile Diabetes. We just did the JDRF walk yesterday. I would really like to help and bring some supplies when we go in December. Can anyone give me some specifics as to what is needed the most. We will be staying in Nuevo Vallarta. Will Pam be able to come and get the supplies???
Beth - I brought two glucometers and 2 boxes of test strips and they were very much appreciated. I also brought school supplies and books, but Pam e-mailed me and she was most excited about the diabetes supplies. She is involved in an outreach diabetes monitoring program for kids who can't afford the equipment to monitor on their own at home. She had also mentioned a need for backpacks on one of my trips. If you e-mail her, she will send you a long list of items needed and how they will be used. When I stayed in Nuevo Vallarta, I made the mistake of not contacting her until the end of the week. She was out of town, so I had my brother-in-law contact her the following week and he made arrangements to drop them off at a downtown hotel where she did pick things up the following week. Not the best plan because the package got misplaced and it took her two trips to track it down. I always wondered if all the items were still in the package by the time it made it's way to Pam! The Mexican people are so friendly and welcoming to tourists, so this is my small way of giving back. Hope this information helps.
KarenLK - We were in PVR at the end of March for our Spring Break. Husband is a teacher. Stayed at the Golden Crown Paradise. Had a great time but the sun sure felt hotter than usual!

we just got back and actually met Pamela - it was great. She really needs test strips either from accucheck or we brought testors from walgreens, so she could use those strips now too.
We said we could meet her ourselves and actually met her at Cornerstone Hospital which was RIGHT AT the bus stop across from the Los Tules resort in PV - you could take the bus easily from NV some time when you go down there. Or I am sure she could make other arrangements....did you get her email?
