For those of you that are/were wondering if and how I know Raul and his family, I've known Raul for the majority of my life. He worked for my dad's company for almost 11 years. At one point, when I was probably 7 or so, Raul let us know that he was quitting. I wrote him a letter explaining to him (all words probably misspelled) that he was my favorite employee and that I didn't want him to quit. He ended up staying with my dad after reading that letter, and Raul has kept it still to this day. Raul has always had a special place in both mine and my families hearts. When I was told by my parents about what happened, I knew I had to help any way I could. I did NOT expect to get any where close to this much money donated. So thank you all so much for your donations, prayers, love, and support. I just know it is making it that much easier for Raul & his family during this time.
The goal has been raised to $20,000. I am not expecting to reach that goal, but everyone has shocked me so far with your donations. In exactly 2 DAYS of this account being made, we are close to $10,000! I want every single person that donated to know how much you guys are truly helping this family. Not just by your donations, but by showing them that SO many of you, that don't even know the family personally, are taking the time out of your day and the money out of your banks to help. God Bless You All. & thank you so much. The family checks this site often. You all are truly CHANGING LIVES. ❤️❤️❤️
This wonderful family was so excited to meet their baby boy. Early Saturday morning, April 26th 2014, Ana was taken to the hospital to soon meet her son. While in labor, Ana began to feel ill and it seemed like in just seconds, she was unconsious. Shortly after, her heart stopped beating, and at that point, they had to save baby Raul. They had an emergency c-section and the baby made it, although Ana did not. Raul Ramirez is now raising a family of 5, all while trying to work a full time job, all on his own. Baby Raul was not able to meet his mother, and Ana wasn't able to meet her beautiful baby boy. Ana's birthday is in just 3 days, on April 30th. The best gift to this family, other than love and support, would be donations towards the funeral and memorial costs for Ana Gutierrez-Ramirez.
