Coronado Sandman Avila

$1,500 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 43 people in 13 months

Alberto Avila, known to many in the communities of San Diego, California and El Paso, Texas as The Coronado Sandman, was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer in 2015. He has spent his last few years doing what he loves, creating his unique art for the people of his community, 

Recently, his health has declined severly due to bleeding in his asophogus caused from complications of his damaged liver. 

Although his attitude and overall condition currently remain positive, his situation is very severe and life-threatening in that, according to his Doctors, if he begins bleeding again, they will not be able to stop it and are recommending him to be placed once again in Hospice Care.

Because of this, we feel that now may be an appropriate time to reach out to the communities that have shown him endless love and support, and allow them to give back to The Sandman and his family through aiding with the financial burdens of Medical Treatment, as well as Funeral and Memorial Arrangements, so that Mr. Avila may live out his days in peace and see his legacy live on through the people that loved him.

I would like to thank everyone who donated to my dad's fundraiser. We were able to lay my dad down at the Evergreen Cemetary on Alameda in El Paso, TX where his father and family are at. We will keep his Facebook account open to keep his legend alive. Thank you again, and please share any pictures or memories you may have. We would love to hear and see them and would like to share them with future generations.
