Edison Funeral Fund

For those who knew Edison, they remember a funny and optimistic person, a caring and loving father and husband. However, in February 2018, he was diagnosed with Stage 4 prostate cancer, and that broke our family’s heart and changed our life. At the time of his diagnosis, he did not have health insurance and his tumor could not be removed. He never gave up and continue his work as a minister in his church located in Charlotte NC. However, due to his cancer, he had to stop it and continue his treatment. For the last three years, he has not worked because his cancer has spread through his whole body, and he cannot walk. Even though, he has been receiving chemotherapy twice a month, it is not making any improvement and, he is under hospice care now. As a family, we are amazed for the strength he has showed during all this time, keeping his faith and hope to defeat this terrible disease. Cancer has been defeating him slowly and his family is expecting the worst very soon. Therefore, we are raising money to help our mom cover the large cancer treatment bills and funeral costs, which will help her get through this difficult time.  

Our dad will be missed dearly by many and we understand it is a difficult time for everybody, but this is a request to collectively join hands and help his family. Thank you in advance for all the help and prayers as moments like these make us believe more in humanity. No donation is too small.

The Quintana Family

Para los que conocieron a Edison, lo recuerdan como una persona graciosa, un esposo optimista, cariñoso y un padre amoroso. Sin embargo, en Febrero 2018, él fue diagnosticado con Cancer a la Prostata fase 4, y rompio el Corazon de su familia, cambiando la vida de todos para siempre. Al tiempo de su diagnosis, él no tenia Seguro medico y su tumor tampoco pudo ser removido. Edison no se rindio y continuo con su trabajo como pastor de su iglesia en la ciudad de Charlotte NC. Pero, debido a su cancer, tuvo que parar la mission y continuar con su tratamiento. Por los ultimos tres años, el no ha podido moverse ni caminar porque su cancer esta en todo su cuerpo. A pesar de haber recibido quimoterapia dos veces al mes, ya no esta haciendo ninguna mejora en su cuerpo y ahora esta en etapa terminal. Como familia, hemos sido testigo de la gran fuerza que ha mostrado todo este tiempo , manteniendo su fe y esperanza para vencer esta enfermedad. El Cancer ha venido derrotandolo poco a poco y su familia espera lo peor en cualquier momento. Por eso, estamos buscando la ayuda de personas que nos ayuden a donar dinero para cubrir los ultimos gastos de quimoterapia y gastos de funeral lo cual podria pasar de inmediato. Mi mama lo apreciaria muchisimo, ya que ella es, la que ha sido mas afectada con todo esto.

Nuestro papa sera extrañado enormemente por muchos y entendemos que esta es una situacion dificil para todos, pero pedimos que todos nos agarremos de las manos y puedan ayudarlo. Le agradecemos de ante mano por su ayuda y oraciones en momentos como este que nos hacen creer en el buen Corazon de las personas otra vez. Ninguna ayuda es pequeña. Gracias de Corazon
