Assisting Alex

Hi. My name is Mary and I’m writing on behalf of a dear friend, Marlene Valderrama-Marin. I’ve worked with Marlene for several years and was heartbroken by the sudden news that her younger brother, Alex , was diagnosed with a fast-progressing cancer.

Alex is an independent, loving, and generous young man who was recently hired to start a new job as a government contractor. Despite all the excitement about his new role, he is unfortunately without much needed insurance at this time leaving the family to cover all living and medical expenses.

Alex is such a giving person, who's always willing to give a helping hand. So after years of helping others, please join us in Assisting Alex.

Treatment begins later this week so please consider donating to support his expenses while the family focuses on his care.  Any contribution is greatly appreciated and all donations will go directly to Marlene whose handling his expenses at this time.

Thank you.
