We need your help. Our dear Adolpho Bernal, aka Mr. Waffle is a 17 year old boy who diagnosed at the young age of 14. It was first caught when he began having extreme headaches. The Diagnoses was a pediatric form of Cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma in April 2013. It is in the form of a tumor that started in the sinus area and unfortunately has made its way to the brain, around the carotid artery area despite undergoing several treatment options including multiple infusion chemo-therapies and 6 weeks of radiation. After about a year of battling this he beat the Cancer, there was no signs of Cancer found in December of 2013. For a few months the Cancer was dormant but came back with even more aggressiveness then the first time in May of 2014.
Doctors have said that surgery is not an option for him. After exhausting several treatment protocols, his doctors have said that their goal has shifted. It is no longer to cure but to comfort.
Despite all of this, Adolpho continues to fight! He has tremendous faith in the LORD JESUS CHRIST. He knows that what doctors can't do, the Lord can. Adolpho uses every opportunity to share his testimony with others, whether its a group of his peers, or people he approaches on the street.
I want to fill you in as to how we got here, and why we need your help... please read on... and please support Adolpho and his family during this urgent time of need by donating whatever you can to help them cover the costs that have been accumulating.
Before this occurred Adolpho was not your average teenage boy. He was involved with Young Marines, involved in youth activities at his church, definitely on the right road to a bright future. He had the strength to ride his bike to and from school. On the weekends he and his family loved to dirt bike race as they all love off road riding.
Just a short time before the diagnosis Adolpho's mother had a bad back injury and was forced to stop working. Which left their family depending on only the income of his father. As the years have passed Adolpho's father had to take additional time away from work to attend doctor visits in doing so this has put tremendous financial stress on the family of 5.
Any money you can give will go directly toward medical costs, living expenses, comfort, assistance and other related costs present and future. Adolpho has a strict and limited diet, so the funds will also go toward groceries for him. If you find yourself in a difficult financial situation yourself & cant donate we ask that you simply pray for Adolpho.
