Lauro's Medical and Living Expenses

My name is Richard Fable. My good friend Lauro Genzale and I worked together for 6 years doing property management, home renovations and repairs. In April of 2017, Lauro started a new business as an independent contractor. In the middle of August 2017, Lauro was diagnosed with a cancerous lesion in his colon and had 18 inches of his colon removed. During the operation, the doctors realized the lesion was very aggressive and had broken through his colon and attached itself to his abdominal wall. There is a high likelihood Lauro will be undergoing chemotherapy real soon. Either way, he will be in recovery mode for the next few months and will be unable to work.   He has all of the regular living expenses  to deal with, as most of us do, as well, he as a 14 year old daughter to support. The timing of his illness couldn't be worse. Your generous donations will help Lauro cover his medical and living expenses while he undergoes rehabillitation. Lauro has already missed many weeks of work and now faces a long recovery period.
