Keep Damian's Heart Beating

Hi my name is Edgar Mendoza I live in Las Vegas, NV former resident of Ely, NV and I initially started this campaign to help give my little cousin Damian a chance to continue fighting  for his life in pursuit of hope. My aunt Rosa and uncle Orlando during this time were in complete shock as any parent would, along with my entire family so they asked me to help them with every step. It started as it states below: "We are raising money for Damian to have a chance to live. Damian, three years old, is currently fighting for his life at UMC Children's Hospital due to an accident. The parents were given an ultimatum to donate his organs or otherwise pull the plug within a 24 hour period. Staff has been very unprofessional and not helpful. We have now found another docotor, out-of -state , willing to keep fighting for his life. UMC is not willing to keep treating him nor approve a transfer to the other hospital that will. We are faced with the struggle for proving a lawyer to oversee the negligence and medical transportation for Damian. We are asking for your humble prayers and support for a second chance of Damian to keep fighting." Late Thursday evening of .Nov 30th our whole world flopped upside down, I recieved a call from the hospital that was going to accept my baby cousin in Utah, that they were no longer willing to take him in anymore due to the extreme circumstances. Late that night  is when my baby cousin passed to the the heavens.  Due to my cousin passing before transportation,  our campaign changed from gathering monetary dues for air transportion to another state, to helping my aunt and uncle give my baby cousin a funeral worthy of an angel. My family was only here in Nevada visiting for the thanksgiving holiday from their residing home in the state of Idaho. Again, my aunt and uncle asked of my help since they weren't mentally capable to plan Damian's funeral. I was left fully in charge of arranging everything.  I will be using these much appreciated donations to cover funeral expenses which include trasporting to Idaho, burial costs, casket, funeral home fees, flowers, cemetery fees and burial spot, fair fees, grave stone, etc..  I want to sincerely thank everyone on behalf of my family and myslef for your kind and humble donations. May God bless you!
