A Role He Doesn't Want

Many of you know and love Elias Montoya as a wise cracking, funny, talented and compassionate young man who, with his mom, headed to LA to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy  and pursue his gift of acting. Until last week, he was doing FANTASTIC- good grades, new friends and very happy. Now he has a role he does not want: on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, Elias suffered a heart attack requiring immediate life-saving surgery to replace two blocked arteries.  Today  Elias was diagnosed with  a rare form of lupus that is eating away at his blood vessels; this is what caused his arteries to deteriorate. This nasty condition has put other organs at risk. Butt-kicking steroids and possible chemotherapy will hopefully stop the lupus in its tracks. In the meantime, his mom and #1 fan,  Brittany Montoya,  has barely settled in to LA and will need to reduce her work hours in the short term to attend to his medical care. Will you PLEASE help me to help them?  Please give whatever you can. He's a great kid with so much promise. Can we promise him that we care?

Thank you.
