Please Consider Helping my Friend, Yamil

Donation protected
Hello all of you beautiful people. I have a special request. Please consider donating to help my friend Yamil. I’ve known him since I began my job at Sons Coffee. His friendly and kind demeanor made us fast friends and his service dog Diego is a heart throb. Yamil is actively pursuing a baseball dream playing with a league in Houston and aiming to go pro. He has a sponsorship that won’t begin early enough for him to stay on top of the monthly expenses and they won’t give an advance.
I knew Yamil for months before hearing more of his story about how he took two bullets while in the army and was accidentally left for dead. By Gods grace he made it back and woke up in the hospital but was diagnosed with diabetes. Yamil walks with such humility and kindness that you have no idea what he’s faced including battling stage 2 leukemia. Among other challenges faced he continues to trust God. He actively served and sang at his church before heading to Houston and was laid off shortly after getting the call for the opportunity of his dreams. It didn’t give him enough time to look for, nor did it make sense to settle into a new job knowing he’d be leaving soon. While in Houston he had his car broken into, his laptop and insulin among other things stolen. I can’t make all this up. Circumstantially things haven’t been the least bit fair but Yamil keeps his chin up. There isn’t a thing I wouldn’t do to help my dear friend and brother in Christ. He is a true friend. He’s the best dog dad. He’s a hard worker and very responsible. I just can’t say enough about him. Again, please consider helping me reach my goal to give him a small thank you for his service and so much more.
