Thank you for taking a moment to read this story. My name is Melissa Kakuk, aunt to Cisco Galvez. I have created this account on behalf of Cisco's mom, Juanita Vidana and father Frankie Galvez. My brother Anthony was Cisco's stepdad. All funds raised will be used for Cisco's funeral expenses and to aid in his family's living expenses as they grieve over the loss of their son.
On the evening of January 3rd, Juanita brought Cisco to Dignity Health Center in San Bernardino because Cisco had been sick with the flu. He was also having trouble breathing due to his reoccurring asthma. This was his second visit this week. After running many tests, they knew he was quite ill and needed to be transported to Loma Linda Children's Hospital. His diagnoses was unclear. His glucose level was high and he was lethargic with labored breathing. While awaiting transport, Cisco stopped breathing and passed away in the early hours of January 4th. He died from Myocarditis or heart failure. It is unclear if Cisco had a preexisting heart condition or if the myocarditis was caused from complications from the flu.
This unexpected tragedy hasn't only rocked the world of all those that loved him, but his family will need help in the financial burden of his funeral arrangements.
Cisco always had a smile on his face. He was the sweetest boy. He loved video games, football and was looking forward to playing soccer next year. He was extremely bright and excelled in school. He was a wonderful little brother to Angelina and a loving big brother to Lydia and Levi. He leaves behind so many that loved him and has joined his twin brothers in the life beyond.
We love you Cisco. You are missed and our hearts are broken.
