Christmas Magic Needed

8 weeks ago 17yr old Miguel's mom went to wake him up for his 1st day of his school for his Jr. year. Miguel was unresponsive and rushed to Children's hospital. Having multiple seizures, they put him in a medical induced coma. Miguel fought hard for 8 weeks, but his battle came to an end today at 4:50am. 
During this 8 weeks, his mom lost her job. And his dad has been trying to stay strong and continue to go to work daily. Before this heartbreak will get manageable, it will become harder. 
They have 2 younger children to still raise. A funeral to plan and rent and bills to pay. 
We are asking for everyone’s help for funeral expenses and to help pay their rent while this family mourns and heals to the best of their ability.
I run a Christmas adoption program, and his family was nominated a few weeks ago for a "Big Magical Christmas".
We have a group called "Big Magical Christmas" of about 250+ people who have been working hard together, with plans of giving this family a VERY MAGICAL Christmas. 
We have people buying gifts for Miguel's parents & siblings and we have almost one month of rent covered. But now with the passing of Miguel, we know this family needs MUCH MORE then our group can offer! We need MANY people to come together to make this the time of need the most MAGICAL of all!
Any size donation, is appreciated! 
The family has lost their son & brother.  The healing process will be long and painful. The least we can do is take the burden of these expenses off of them.
