Juwaan’s Medical and Funeral Costs

Juwaan was admitted to the hospital on March 29th for kidney stones. After recovering, Juwaan returned home to his family. Two weeks later, Juwaan suffered from an internal obstruction and had to have emergency surgery. He stayed in the ICU and proceeded to have four more surgeries. Despite the excruciating pain Juwaan was suffering through, his spirit never gave up on the possibility of recovering. The doctors did everything they could but Juwaans organs started to shut down. Our beloved Juwaan passed away on April 20th, 2020.

Juwaan was a wonderful friend and brother who touched the lives of those around him. If you knew Juwaan, you knew the light he brought to anyone around.. especially with that contagious smile he always shared. He is loved by so many! Someone so special will never be forgotten and his loss is felt deeply by many in the community.

My heart and deepest condolences go out to the Espinal family. Juwaan, his mom, and sister are real-life superheroes that have inspired so many.

I am a friend of Ibis Espinal, the mother of Juwaan. With permission from the family, I am posting this to help raise money for the mounting medical and funeral costs the family is enduring in the hopes that it is one less worry they will have. Please consider donating, as any amount will truly help the family during this difficult time.
