Funeral services

Hello Family and Friends. I am starting this campaign to raise money for my uncle Jose (Cuate) Sarabia. My uncle was diagnosed last September 2013 with cancer in the neck and has battled very hard against it. Unfortunately his cancer spread to the head and he was currently diagnosed at a stage 4 and they have told us that we should prepare for his departure of this world. They said it could be any day, week or months. My Uncle is an Army Veteran and at this time he isnt getting help from them. My aunt does not work because she cares for him day and night and the money she had saved is slowly depleting. The funds raised are to help with medical expenses as well as utilities she may need to pay for the home. My aunt doesn't want to stop caring for him and as his family we will forever be in her debt for her devout love to him. This has not been easy for her to see him day in and day out, to have so much hope and faith that he will get better and to have moments where they tell her that the time she has with him is shorter than she hoped. If you can find it in your heart to help with any amount we would all appreciate it. Tio has had so much support from family, friends and co-workers from the City of Chicago where he worked for many years. He has felt the love from everyone that has taken the time to visit him in his home, where he feels better than in any hospital. Thank you all for reading this and we send you all hugs. Please pray for my uncle Cuate during this time and for his family, thank you and God Bless!

***Saludos a la familia y a todos los amigos/amigas. Organise este medio para quien pueda y guste ayudar a mi tio Jose (Cuate) Sarabia donando lo que puedan para sus gastos medicos y de su hogar. Mi tio fue diagnosticado con cancer en el cuello en Septiembre de 2013. Tio tuvo Fe en Dios y tambien lucho mucho contra el cancer con kimo y radiacion. Hace como 2 meses le dijeron que el cancer le llego a la cabeza y que el tumor no se podia operar, el ya esta en etapa 4 de cancer. El esta en su casa, porque ahi es en donde el se siente mejor. Mi tia, su esposa, lo atiende de dia y de noche porque lo adora y desea ser ella quien lo cuide. Mi tia en estos momentos no trabaja porque ella quiero cuidar a mi tio, y usa sus ahorros para mantenerlos, pero sin ingresos poco a poco esos ahorros se agotan. Mi tio es un veterano de el Army y desafortunadamente el no recive ayuda de ellos. Por esto es que cualquier ayuda monetario departe de ustedes es agradecido de corazon. Gracias a todos los que se an dado tiempo de visitarlo en casa, el se pone contento con la visita de familia y amigos de todas partes. Aunque a el le molesta mucho las voces altas, pero es por su condicion, a el lo pone de buen humor las visitas de sus seres queridos. Muchas gracias por leer este mensaje, les mendamos un abrazo, y por favor mantengan a mi tio entre sus oraciones. Dios les bendiga.
