Edwin's Healing Fund

$13,089 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 211 people in 6 months
Our homie and hermano Edwin and his family are in need for your contribution. Edwin has been hospitalized since Friday August 31 and currently he is in the ICU. Edwin has a rare autoimmune syndrome/response to a virus or infection. It's a sudden and acute response by his immune system to attack his own nervous system. We know that Edwin will have a long hospital stay and later rehabilitation and healing process with physical and occupational therapy, and we know that Edwin and his family needs our help right now.

Edwin's wife Eneida and family and close friends have been a rock. Eneida has been an inspiration to us-- she's so strong and loving. And Edwin's friends have stayed with him through the nights. All his friends from far and wide and old and new have visited Edwin in shifts throughout the weeks. He's so appreciative of the love you've shown and we're so lucky to have Edwin in our lives.

Your donation will help Edwin's family with deductibles for his hospital and rehab stay outside of his health insurance, daily parking lot fees and gas for Edwin's family, and necessities and bills for Edwin, his wife and children.

You can send texts/voice texts/songs to Edwin's cell phone (Eneida reads them to Edwin every night) or Get Well cards to the La Comunidad, Inc. You can also donate cash or Market Basket gift cards and drop them off at La Comunidad, Inc. in Everett or MA Jobs with Justice to help out the family during this difficult time. If you want to visit, let Lily or Iliana know so we can sign you up to prevent too many visitors at one time.

You know that Edwin always, always has our backs so it's our time to show him that we've got his! And send him our prayers and healing thoughts and show him lots of love.

Dear friends and family,

Thank you so much for your continued support to get Edwin out of rehab and back on his feet!

We'll be celebrating with a New Years Potluck with him this Saturday, January 5th from 1-3pm at his rehab center in Cambridge. If you would like to join us, please email Lily lily.yimche.huang@gmail.com for the location and the dish you'd like to share. Lily will let you know the location.

Thank you for your love to Edwin and his family. We miss him and can't wait to have him in the streets with us.

In solidarity,

Edwin's friends and family

Hey everyone!

I went to visit Edwin last week with Gillian. Good news- he spoke with us and was up to the same ol' jokes. How we missed his sweet voice! Edwin is still in Rehab and gets physical and occupational therapy everyday.

With your donation, his family has been able to invite someone to take care of him full time. With your continued support, Edwin's family can make sure to keep his care plan to help Edwin become strong.

Please continue to send texts, songs, poems and stories to Edwin's cell. And if you can visit him, please let me know (lily.yimche.huang@gmail.com)!

Help spread the word!

Dear friends,

Thank you so much for giving to Edwin's Healing Fund. After a month and half in the hospital, Edwin has moved to a Rehabilitation Center. Edwin continues to be stable. We are thankful for all the support from family and friends, without it we would be lost.

Please continue to send texts/voice texts/songs to Edwin's cell phone (Eneida reads them to Edwin every night). If you would like to give again, you can give through this GoFundMe or cash/check/gift cards addressed to Edwin to the La Comunidad, Inc. or Mass. Jobs with Justice. If you want to visit, let Lily (lily.yimche.huang@gmail.com) or Iliana (igpanameno@gmail.com) know so they can sign you up.

Sincerely,

Edwin's family
