Genaro Gorostieta's Medical Fund

My name is Alayna Martin and I am setting up this fundraiser for my good friend Genaro Gorostieta. Genaro has been in and out of Mary Washington Hospital fighting Appendix Cancer this past year. This is the second round of cancer that Genaro has fought and it has now progressed to Metastatic Cancer. In other words, it has spread throughout his body. Genaro and his wife Angelica (33) have been struggling to pay not only for his medical expenses but for the housing and care of their 4 children together. On June 18th of this year the doctors told Genaro that there was nothing else they could do for him and he was given 6 months to live. Even when he has been ravaged with cancer in his body he still tries to work at his job, Outback Steakhouse, where he has been family for 16 years. He continues to fight for his kids to make sure that they are taken care of. This fund is to ensure that in the last days of Genaro's life his wife and kids can be with him. Angelica who also works at Outback continues to work even while he is in the hospital in order to provide income for their family. I want to erase the worry from their minds that they will be able to pay their bills and spend their remaining time together. Genaro is a beautiful person who cares deeply for others. He bleeds Outback and is such a loving father to four amazing kids; Axel (15), Kevin (13), Shirley (10) and Iker (4). So please, donate because this family needs it immediately. Any little bit helps and is greatly appreciated. We love you Genaro!
