Lalo Guillen's Health Ins. Fund

My long time friend and colleague, Lalo, has had a very challenging 2017. In February, his wife Veronica became ill and was unable to work. Lalo, who hadn't been feeling well himself, took family leave for a few weeks to help care for his wife. His wife's health improved, but she did not return to work until December 2017, as she now was needed to care for Lalo full-time, who had become incapacitated.  Lalo's symptoms increased and he began to experience very debilitating headaches.  As a result, he  has not been able to work since February 2017. He has experienced leaking spinal fluid settling in his skull, near his brain, which causes severe headaches and the inability to care for himself, work or drive. He has had two surgical spinal cord procedures and it appears that he will endure even more this coming year. His wife, Veronica, is working now, but it appears that Lalo will not be able to return to work for an extended period of time.  As we start a new year, this money will help to pay incurred medical expenses and other financial needs. In January 2018, Lalo's state disability and health insurance will expire. Most importantly, please pray for complete recovery for Lalo and strength for his family to continue caring for him and carrying the burden.  Please consider donating to help my friend Lalo.  Please share this on social media to make others aware of this cause. These funds will definitely be a blessing to this family in their time of need. Thank you! Mark T. Cobb

We'd like to surprise the Guillen family at the end of January 2018 with these funds. Thank you for sharing and caring!
