On March 7th was just another normal Saturday for Tara and her family.  They loved to be together at all chances possible. They never expected the worse.  While going to dinner around 5:30pm a estranged man followed their vehicle and fired what is believed to be 2 shots one of them hitting the back windshield of their vehicle but also striking Antonio in the head. He was sent to UK with life threatening conditions and underwent a 3 hour surgery - he is fighting for his life as every second passes.

Antonio is a 9 year old son to Tara, a older brothr to 2 boys and he has an older sister.   He is a smart kid, does well in school, and is exceptional on the soccer field. He loves soccer, Messi is his favorite player. 

He and I argued over who was gonna win the World Cup this year - and when I was right I had to call and rub it in. 

He is so young, has his life and future ahead of him.  In just a few weeks his family is set to move into my house and get them out of the area they are in. 

Lets help this boy, and his family.  Surgeries are expensive, and while the parents tend to his needs in the hospital income is going to be limited.  Lets raise enough money so we can help the family and Antonio during this hard time.

It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Alice. Alice is Antonio's service dog - Antonio is down in Florida right now finishing up the training and he and Alice will be home next week. We are still a little shy on the final cost of dog due to travel expensive but Guardian Angles has allowed him to bring the dog home and allow us to fundraise one last time to get the remaining fees paid. Without the help from everyone here we would of never been able to make this dream come true. Again for her first introduction, meet Alice!

I would love to try and set up a fundraising walk. True I have never done this before so any help or information on how to begin would be great! My coworkers and I at UK are so grateful to Dan Cummins, now to get a four legged angel for Antonio!

Antonio is in my daughters's class at school. She is very heartbroken to hear about her friend. He would chase her around the playground all the time. Please tell him that Daniela hopes he pulls through so he can continue his chase. Prayers for the family!
