Juaquin Torres Cancer Fund

Two weeks ago my wife's mother noticed my son was not using his left arm as much. We did not think much of it since he had recently had a fall. However, as the days passed we noticed he used his arm less and less and eventually was unable to raise it or open his hand. We took him to his Dr. and he ordered an xray of his hand; he found no issue and said to return in a week if the issue persists. A week later we noticed that he had began dragging his left foot and kept falling towards his left side with noticeable face droopiness to his left side. His physician then referred us to Edinburg Children's Hospital where they issues a MRI scan for the next morning. Today, we have received the news that he has a cerebral tumor that is causing partial paralysis of his left side. Dr. then referred us to Doctors Hospital at Renaissance where they informed us that the tumor was deeply embedded in his brain and they will need to remove the tumor send it for analysis and drain the liquid to relieve cranial pressure. At this point we are both struggling and since the hospital is two hours round trip from our home it is a bit difficult to afford food and gas. I am not asking for thousands of dollars but I please ask for some help for gas and food even if it's a total of 5$ it will greatly help us. thank you.
