On the night of my mother's wake, my beautiful wife of 24 years Carmencita was struck with a  ruptured brain aneurysm. 

We rushed her to the emergency room at Mt. Sinai and she survived over 5 hours of surgery. 

She went on to battle more surgeries and procedures over the course of 3 months. 

Her strength and determination came out through all of this and she qualified for rehab at Helen Hayes Hospital. 

For 45 days her rehabilitation went great. She continued to push forward. Then after many appeals from family and medical staff from both hospitals, our primary insurance carrier would not grant us any additional insurance coverage to continue her rehabilitation. Rehab costs run over $50,000 per month! 

We want to give Carmencita every possible opportunity to continue the incredible progress she continues to make. 

Carmencita has dedicated her life to helping others. She has been a dedicated prosecutor for the NY Queens District Attorneys office for over 25 years. She has worked along side the brave men and women of law enforcement and earned their respect and trust.  She dedicated her career to representing victims of crimes and prosecuting the criminals responsible. 

Carmencita's current role is Director of the Office of Immigrant Affairs for the Queens District Attorney. She continues to dedicate her life by helping others in her community. This is her way of life. Let’s be there for her in her toughest battle. We are seeking funds for all of Carmencita’s rehabilitation costs. 


I thank you for all your love and support. I thank God for the miracle of my wife Carmencita. 


God bless you!

I want to thank everyone for their love, support, and prayers. After another month at Mount Sinai for medication adjustments and observation, we moved Carmencita into a specialized rehab facility in lower Manhattan. Cita is doing very well there. She is standing, sitting, and attempting to walk daily. Cita also has speech therapy and she is speaking words and improving with each passing day. I am by her side daily and I’m very proud of her strength and determination. Your love and support has gotten us another couple of months in rehab and I am eternally grateful to everyone. God bless you all and keep praying for Cita.
