Emiliano was born premature at 33 weeks and has faced many challenges in his young life. At only 2 years old, he has spent months in a hospital fighting infections, illness, and even suffered a stroke. Through it all, he has had his mama at his side and a smile on his face. He is a shining light, and an example of determination and hope to all who know him.
Recently, Emiliano has been matched with a donor for a kidney transplant. This miracle will improve his life beyond measure, and we are so honored and grateful! The transplant will take place at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in California.
With such amazing news, we are asking for any donation you can spare to support his mom and family. Luciana is a hardworking single mom, she cares for others every day as a nurse. However, working in a hospital exposes Luciana to many potential germs that she cannot afford to bring home to Emiliano while he's so fragile after transplant. She will be with him every step of the way for the first 3 months of his healing, and your donation will go toward travel expenses , as well as relieve the burden of living expenses for her other 3 children.
Thank you so much for any amount you can spare, and God Bless!
