Don Beto's family needs our help

Don Beto (Humberto Aguilar) a Salvadorian immigrant that came to the United States looking for a better future for his family. At the time, Don Beto came with Holliday Aguilar his wife, a young Mexican lady. They had four children who were born and raised in Denver Colorado. Don Beto was a hard working man that provided it all for his family until one day in 2010 after seizures affected his short-term memory and cognitive abilities, his life was about to change forever.

Don Beto, ended up in ER with serious illness from his seizures from which he never recovered. For the past 9 years, Holliday his wife had to become the caregiver for him and stopped working. Due to his immigration status, he was unable to receive any type of medical insurance or support for him.  The family faced all barriers and did whatever it would take to survive. Esmeralda the oldest daughter who you see in the photo became the only provider for all her family after Don Beto's illness. She withdrawal from school and was working up to two jobs to provide for her parents and three siblings. 

Not only did the Aguilar family had to face these challenges, but in addition, they were one of the families to be displaced from their rental home in 2017 because of a city project in I-70 highway next to their home. With the current cost living in the metro area, the Aguilar family finds themselves now paying 3 x more every month than their old house from which they were displaced without any other option. 

This past week Don Beto was taken to the ER once again, he arrived at the hospital in critical conditions and was in the intensive care unit for almost two weeks. Don Beto did some recovery during those weeks but unfortunately past away Thursday, October 4th at 6 am.  Family was always by his side until his last breath. 

The Aguilar family does not count with any funds nor family to support with the funeral expenses. Esmeralda, Don Beto's daughter had to stop working during these past weeks due to dad being in the hospital. They are in high need and we are requesting your support,  any contribution helps. Please support Don Beto's family, the family only wants to provide a memorial service to their loving dad. This will be their last goodbye to Don Beto. Holliday, Don Beto's wife thanks any contributors and has all her hopes that we will be able to raise money to cover the funeral services for her husband Don Beto.
