Mateo's Fund

Mateo was a joyful child who always had a smile on his face despite his heart condition and ongoing medical needs. He brought hope, joy and laughter to everyone who met him. His parents have been a great support system during Mateo's most difficult times as he came and went from the hospital/medical appointments/therapies. Even with all these challenges, Mateo's mom has found time to support others in the disability community, unselfishly. 

Two months ago, Mateo's family was out of the country when he got ill. It became difficult for the family to receive the care that he needed as well as made it difficult to come back to the U.S.

Eventually, he was able to be safely transported to an American hospital and this put a large financial burden on the family. 

Unfortunately, as of February 22, 2018, Mateo passed away peacefully surrounded by friends leaving behind his little brother, mother and father.

At this point, any financial support to cover funeral arrangements will be greatly appreciated. Please donate as much or a little as you can contribute.

Mateo era un niño alegre que siempre tenía una sonrisa en su rostro a pesar de su condición cardíaca y sus necesidades médicas. Él trajo esperanza, alegría y risa a todos los que lo conocieron. Sus padres han sido un gran sistema de apoyo durante los tiempos más difíciles de Mateo durante el tiempo que estuvo hospitalizado, sus citas médicas y sus terapias. Aún con todos estos desafíos, la mamá de Mateo ha encontrado tiempo para apoyar a otros en la comunidad de personas con discapacidades. 

Hace dos meses, la familia de Mateo estaba fuera del país cuando se enfermó. Fue dicifil que la familia recibiera la atención que Mateo necesitaba y dificultó su regreso a los Estados Unidos.

Eventualmente, pudo ser transportado de manera segura a un hospital estadounidense y esto colocó una gran carga financiera en la familia.

Desafortunadamente, a partir del 22 de febrero de 2018, Mateo falleció en paz rodeado de amigos dejando a su hermanito, madre y padre.

Cualquier ayuda financiera para cubrir los arreglos funerarios será muy apreciado. Por favor, done tanto o tan poco como pueda contribuir.
