Dear friends and family,

I hope this message finds you well. It is with a heavy heart and a deep sense of urgency that I reach out to you today. On June 9, 2023, my beloved brother, Jose Santiago, received a devastating diagnosis: glioblastoma multiforme, a primary brain cancer that has turned our world upside down.

Since that fateful day, Jose has been undergoing grueling treatments, including radiation and chemotherapy, in a courageous battle against these aggressive tumors. By his side, his devoted wife Maribel Zayas has taken on the role of his primary caregiver, a task that demands her constant attention and care. This situation has forced her to take a leave from her job, causing a significant financial strain on their family.

The cumulative expenses, from medical bills to daily necessities, have added an unbearable weight to their shoulders. We are now turning to you, our cherished friends and family, with a humble request for assistance. Any donation, no matter the amount, would be a lifeline of support during this trying time.

We understand that these are challenging times for everyone, but if you can find it in your heart to contribute, you will be making a meaningful difference in Jose and Maribel's lives. Your generosity will help ease their pain and alleviate the financial burden that has resulted from these unforeseen circumstances.

Above all, we ask for your prayers and positive thoughts for Jose's recovery and strength for our family as we navigate this incredibly difficult journey together.

Thank you for your unwavering love, support, and compassion. We are profoundly grateful for the kindness and generosity of our extended family and friends.

With deepest gratitude,
Shaira Santiago
