Chaz Gallegos Medical Expenses

Chaz and Dezirae Gallegos met when they were just kids, 14 and 15 years old. When Dez became pregnant with their daughter, Sophia, it could have broken them apart. Instead, they beat the odds and stayed together becoming a beautiful little family. Now, they have much bigger odds to beat. On Sunday July 23, 2017, Chaz, at 24 years old, was found unresponsive and not breathing in their home. He was rushed to the hospital, enroute to the hospital his heart had to be re-started twice. Chaz is currently on life support, he’s fighting but his kidneys and liver have begun to fail and the doctors say he needs a miracle.

Chaz is a wonderful kid, he loves his family and his friends. You can always count on Chaz to help whenever you need it and now he needs our help. Throughout all of this Dez has been at his side; she’s staying strong for Chaz and for their daughter, Sophia. And while she’s got an amazing support system surrounding her, she needs help. Dez is unable work right now and the medical costs are piling up. There will also be living expenses for her and Sophia during this time. We need to keep Dez’s focus on what’s important right now; Chaz and Sophia, which is why we’re asking for help. Please donate what you can to help Chaz’s family through this difficult time.

The money will be used to cover the costs associated with this tragedy, and help Dez get back on her feet, on a path to moving forward.

Thank you for your emotional and financial support.
