Help 8yr old David with Medical Expenses

Hi, I'm David Castillo Arista, I am 8 years old and I am from the La Playita colony of San Jose del Cabo. 

(David is the 8 yr. old son of Jaime Arista (Buzzards) and the nephew of both Jesus (Zac's) and Angelica Arista (Agua Clara Properties).

Jaime and the family are devastated with David's declining health and could really use some help with David's accident and subsequent illness expenses.


Today I would like to briefly share a bit of my story. When I was 3 months old I suffered a car accident with my parents, because of my head injury the Doctors say I contracted Hydrocephalus which is a buildup of fluid inside the skull, leading to brain swelling. Hydrocephalus means "water on the brain". 

7 years ago I had surgery to adapt and put a valve in my head. I still carry it with me. But today I am away from home, in the hospital, because doctors found a virus in my body, which has left me unable to move much of my body and I am gradually losing my eyesight. 

My parents and family are very sad and need help to carry out my treatment. If you can please open your heart, and help me, because more than anything I want to be able to recover, and return to my home with my family. Thank you.
