Funeral Expenses

Marcos Gil is a true hero
On Saturday, April 28th, Marcos (17) jumped into the Portneuf River, Lava Hot Springs, Idaho, without hesitation, to save his drowning girlfriend, my daughter. 
During this courageous and amazing act of selflessnes, he was able to get underneath her and push her up toward the surface. 
My daughter was saved but tragically, Marcos was pulled under by the strong current and did not survive. 
While we are all grieving, his family is undergoing not only the loss of their son and brother, they have the unexpected costs of a funeral.
Unfortunately, we cannot express our gratitude to Marcos so we have set up this page to financially help his family through this tragedy.
Please donate anything you can.
