Barberena Family battle with COVID-19

I am asking for your support for a great friend and good man, Allan Barberena. Many of you know him from his work at 1145 Market or perhaps at the convenience store where he also works, perhaps you know him as a friend or you may just be a giving supporter. Allan is a great friend of ours and has worked for a vendor that supports Trinity Staff for 17 years and is truly a part of the extended work family.

Allan’s family of Granada, Nicaragua and San Francisco, CA, has been hit hard by the COVID-19 virus. His mom, Luby Obando, brother Rodrigo Barberena both battled COVID-19, with his dad Juan Jose currently hospitalized in a Managua ICU on a ventilator. He is also under care by his cardiologist as he had open heart surgery a few years ago and has developed tachycardia, a condition that makes your heart beat more than 100 times per minute. As of June 24th, Juan had a setback and has an infection in his lungs that the doctors are battling with medication to help control it.

The Barberena family does not have insurance and the medical bills are high and continue to grow with Juan currently hospitalized at a rate of $3,500 a day. The Barberena family has generously emptied their savings accounts to pay down $20,000 of their father’s medical bills but as there is no date as to when he will be released the bills will continue to grow. While we understand COVID-19 has affected a lot of people monetarily, we are asking for any help for the Barberena family. If you can afford to help in any capacity it would be greatly appreciated, if not, please give this a share. Thank you!

 

Le pido su apoyo para un gran amigo y buen hombre, Allan Barberena. Muchos de ustedes lo conocen por su trabajo en 1145 Market o tal vez en la tienda de conveniencia donde también trabaja, tal vez lo conocen como amigo o simplemente pueden ser un donante de apoyo. Allan es un gran amigo nuestro y ha trabajado para un proveedor que apoya al personal de Trinity durante 17 años y es verdaderamente parte de la familia de trabajo extendida.

La familia Allan de Granada, Nicaragua y San Francisco, CA, ha sido duramente afectada por el virus COVID-19. Su madre, Luby Obando, el hermano Rodrigo Barberena lucharon contra COVID-19 con su padre Juan José actualmente hospitalizado en una UCI de Managua con un ventilador. Su cardiólogo también lo está cuidando, ya que tuvo una cirugía a corazón abierto hace unos años y ha desarrollado taquicardia, una condición que hace que su corazón lata más de 100 veces por minuto. A partir del 24 de junio, Juan tuvo un revés y tiene una infección en los pulmones que los médicos están luchando con medicamentos para ayudar a controlarlo.

La familia Barberena no tiene seguro y las facturas médicas son altas y continúan creciendo con Juan actualmente hospitalizado a una tasa de $ 3,500 por día. La familia Barberena ha vaciado generosamente sus cuentas de ahorro para pagar $ 20,000 de las facturas médicas de su padre, pero como no hay una fecha sobre cuándo será liberado, las facturas continuarán creciendo. Si bien entendemos que COVID-19 ha afectado monetariamente a muchas personas, estamos pidiendo ayuda para la familia Barberena. Si puede permitirse el lujo de ayudar en cualquier capacidad, sería muy apreciado, de lo contrario, comparta esto. ¡Gracias!
