on behalf of Domingos Fraga
 MILFORD, MA
When Domingos found out that his big sister Melinda had cancer his world shattered. She was like a second mother, a best friend to him. Instead of asking, why is this happening? He asked, how could he provide a helping hand to his family? At this point he already had a lot on his mind, being newly engaged and an expecting father. He pulled multiple shifts at work and spent time helping his niece and nephew with their homework and just being there for them when their mother was going through cancer treatment. Domingos was always looking forward to being a father, a family man. He married the love of his life 12/31/15.

Throughout his wife's pregnancy Domingos was worried about losing his sister before she got a chance to meet his daughter and continuing to be in the most important moments of his life. The due date arrived on May 6, 2016, Domingos called all his friends and family to notify them that the baby was coming. He was full of joy, his wife was about to make his dreams come true, he was going to be a father. A day that he dreamed about turned into a nightmare. His wife Liz had complications during the delivery and lost her life giving birth to their beautiful daughter. Juliet's time in this world was brief but she was loved so much. She passed on 5/11/2016.

He would never ask for money, and be more inclined to give you money rather than take any. But he's not asking, we are. He's already emotionally drowning with all this bad news and the last thing we would want for him is to drown in debt.

Whatever you could donate would be huge in helping Domingos with the funeral expenses or medical bills.

I'm astonished by the number of support Domingos has received. I can't thank everyone enough for the generous donations and for sharing their own stories of tragedy. I have read each comment and my heart goes out to all of you. I'd like to thank the media for their interest in helping Domingos, and for their understating that this is a difficult time for him and he requires time to grieve. Thank you!

Thank you all for the tremendous support. Our goal was met in less than 24 hours, this is a great demonstration of the human heart. Any continued support is greatly appreciated. Today, Domingos and his family were interviewed by Channel 5 News @ 6pm. This has been all because of you, thank you.

What a h_llish week for you. So much loss in such a short time, and such key women in your life. I pray for you. I also wonder if a medical issue might be involved. I remember hearing that people with CF will sometimes experience this kind of traumatic loss situation. Can't explain why, but I think it may be related to damage to multiple organs and their effects on one's energy system. Anyhow, in this so very stressful time, it would be good to check on your health and maintain it as best as you can.... May God be with you now and always : ) Trust in Him, despite the pain and dark feelings that may be welling up in you.

Praying for you. I can't even begin to imagine your pain but my heart is truly broken for you. Please know that through Jesus Christ, you can see them again. We can't understand how and why God does things, we can only cling to the hope of being reunited. May the Lord comfort you with his peace that passes all understanding. Love and prayers from NC.
