Helps Jaco beat Gillian Barre

For the ones who don't know him, his name is Jacobo Puerto, for some Jaco, for others Chaflan, last but not least for the most important he's dad, 50 yrs old father of 7! Studied at Zamorano! To give a better education for our children and a better life quality we moved to the US about 4 yrs ago! Like many he does not have health insurance! A Hard working man from sunrise to sunset! The best father anyone can ask for! Six of our children are in college and the lil one in 6th grade! We are and old fashion loving United family!

With a blink of an eye our lives changed! Our loving Cobo's life changed and therefore ours! He was diagnosed with meningitis/ West Nile and Gillian Barre! He has been Hospitalized for months now he has been in ICU about every area in the hospital, for y'all who don't know or aren't familiar with this awful cruel Gillian Barre Disease it had him paralyzed, he has been for sometime in intense therapy! Learning how to grab the simplest things we would take for granted like a spoon, he has speech therapy learning how to walk again! When he leaves the hospital he will still need out patient therapy! That's why we are asking for everyone's help it's a slow recovery but costful!

God bless!
