Ricardo's Medical Fund

*Translation Below*
*Traducido Abajo*

On approximately January 20th, 2018, my brother-in-law Ricardo was bitten by a Brown Recluse Spider.  These bites often go unnoticed at the beginning, and it took over a week for his symptoms to begin. The spider bite has lead to a necrotic lesion and he is missing flesh on more than half of his leg. He is extremely ill, and doctors in Mexico are currently trying to save his leg. 
Ricardo is not working, and my sister has stopped working as well to take care of him. He has 2 kids that are 7 and 12 years old.
I am setting up this GoFundMe campaign because medical care in Mexico is much more strict financially, and payment has to be in hand in order for them to treat you. They are forced to travel to a different state for treatment, because their town does not have the technology to treat his leg. Due to frequent travel as well as medical treatment, Ricardo and his family have been going through major financial hardship.

Unfortunately, Ricardo does not have the funds to complete his on-going care, so I am here to ask for your help in saving Ricardo's leg and help his family. 

Any donation will help him and his family immensely, not only with treatment but also for their children's well-being.

God bless you all.

Aproximadamente en Enero 20, 2018, mi cuñado Ricardo le pico una araña considerada una de las mas venenosas. Ese tipo de picaduras usualmente pasan desapersividas  por que no duelen y los sintomas aparecen despues de dias. Cuando el presento sintomas ya se abia perdido una semana y ya abia causado mucho daño.
A perdido mucho tegido y mucha piel y sus horganos estaban a punto de colapsar por el veneno. Y los doctores en Mexico estan Tratando de salvarle su pierna. 

Mi hermana a parado de trabajar para cuidarlo. Tienen dos hijos uno de 12 y otra de 7. Abri esta pagina por que como todos sabemos en Mexico tienes que pagar antes que seas atendidos en cualquier hospital. Desafortunadamente Ricardo y mi hermana no tienen el capital para todas estos medicamentos y tratamientos. 
Y tambien tienen que viajar para aguascalientes cada semana para seguir su tratamiento ya que en zacatecas no ay medicos especialisados en ese tipo de picaduras. 

Seles pide ayuda para salvar la pierna de Ricardo y so familia.

Cada donacion por pequeña que sea sera inmensamente apresiada mil gracias atodos los que donaron que Dios los bendiga.28586274_15217545440_r.jpeg28586274_15217545630_r.jpeg28586274_15217545840_r.jpeg
