Alvaro and Esperanza's Welfare Fund

One week ago Alvaro was climbing a monster tree as one of 404-CUT-TREE's best tree climbers.  Today he can only walk with the aid of a walker.  Allow me to explain.

For three weeks Alvaro had been experiencing headaches while he was performing the highly physical requirements of commercial tree work.  He went to the doctor when the pain became too great.  He was admitted to the hospital and after surgery, he was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

The photo shows him and his wife at their son's first birthday party three weeks ago.  Now he can't walk unassisted, much less support his family.  His primary concern is for the support of Esperanza and the three children after he's gone.

PLEASE consider a small donation.  100% of your gift goes directly to them.  I'm hoping for $100,000, and asking all my customers, friends, family, community of arborists and tree workers to donate and share this campaign.  How much would your family need if you found yourself in Alvaro's position?
