Gustavo´s Medical Fund - Heart Ops

Gustavo Paredes at 38 had 2 heart surgeries as a result of a bacterial endocarditis that compromised his aortic and mitral heart valves. With these operations he is able to continue his life.
His private medical insurance will not cover the expenses arguing "contractual issues".
At the hospital they allowed us to save his life eventho they know we have not the resources to pay them. Gustavo is  in hospital since May 29 and from June 10 is in the ICU Intensive Care Unit and is still unknown when he will be move to a regular room or alow him to move to his home.
Gustavo is a man of 38 with a 6 year old son of the same name. He was the one who contributed most to household expenses so his wife has found it necessary to work extra shifts in order to maintein their home and his child.
To cost as of July 7, 2015  that we received from hospital was set as our goal but we know it will be more becauses he is still in hospital and this amount increases daily.

Any help you can provide, will be eternally grateful.
