Help support Madera’s family

For those who know Madera you could describe him as a big family man. A wonderful father who does everything he can to provide for his sons and daughters and a faithful friend who is always there when you need him.

On the evening of August 12, 2018 Madera was home and planned to grill dinner for his family. Once he lit the grill flames erupted and Madera became engulfed. He ran into his home in pain and fear where his wife and new born son were sitting. His wife did her best to take down the flames but they were  too much, they ran outside where they were finally able to subdue the flames in the grass.

Madera is currently in a Washington, D.C. burn unit recovering from 2nd and 3rd degree burns covering 30% of his body. You never think a tragedy like this will happen to your family until it does. He will not be able to work for god knows how long leaving his family to solely rely on his wife’s income. We are asking please if anyone can find it in their heart to donate or share this link to try and help this family in a time of great need it would be truly appreciated. 

Thank you and god bless!

Los que conocemos a Madera sabemos que es un hombre dedicado a su familia. Un muy buen padre que hace todo a su alcance para proveer todo para sus hijos. Un buen Amigo que siempre está cuando lo necesitas.
La noche del 12 de agosto Madera estaba preparando el grill para hacerle cena a su familia. Cuando encendió el carbón explotó y las llamas alcanzaron a Madera. Salió corriendo a la sala donde estaba su esposa con su bebé recién nacido y ella trató de apagarlo pero no pudo. Finalmente la corrió a la grama donde pudieron apagar el fuego.
Madera de encuentra en la unidad de quemados en un hospital de DC donde lo están tratando por quemaduras de segundo y tercer grado en el 30 % de su cuerpo. Nunca pensamos que una tragedia así podría pasar en tu familia hasta que pasa. El estará por un largo tiempo en el hospital sin poder trabajar y dejando su familia dependiendo sólo del salario de su esposa. Estamos pidiendo que busquen en su corazón y puedan donar lo que puedan y/o compartir este link para tratar de ayudar su familia en estos tiempos tan difíciles .
Gracias y que Dios los bendiga.
