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.
