Help Santiago fight against Cancer

In September 2015, my strong and beloved brother Santiago was diagnosed with colon cancer. He has been strong ever since he found out about his condition. However, he will be undergoing surgery this April and he will have to take long term leave from work. This will set him back financially and place a considerable burden upon Santiago and his family.  

We believe what would help most is to support his family as they face such a hardship. We know that the medical costs and other expenses will add up in a time like this and the last thing he needs is to worry about his financial situation.

Our goal is not only to raise $20,000 but for Santiago to spend all of his time and energy on Vanessa and his three wonderful children (Daisy, Helen and Andrew).

Please help us support the Amaral family during this difficult time.  Your generosity and support means so much to us.
