Isidro's Brain Surgery

Anyone who has sat in our garden or on our rooftop has appreciated the beauty that Isidro has brought into all our lives. He puts his heart into our gardens & takes his work very personally. Isidro is family to us. He has been experiencing a year of  health issues, including passing out while working. Our health care system did not take his issues seriously because of the kind of insurance he has. He tried being treated in MX but with limited effect. Alas, he has now been diagnosed with a tumor in his brain and needs surgery. We don't know what other treatment he'll need until the pathology on the mass. Isidro does not know I am doing this (he is very private). I am hoping the community who gets the grace of his work/heart can help support him through this process, so he can feel our love. It would mean so much to me if you could give any amount you are comfortable with. Thank you. Also, please feel free to pass this on to anyone you feel appropriate. Thank you and Namaste, Elana
