Medical Help for Alejandro's sister

Ten days ago, Alejandro's 5 month old sister, Natalia, began having problems breathing and was going into heart failure. She was rushed from John Muir Hospital to Stanford Hospital where she was diagnosed with  Aortic Coarctation, a narrowing of the major artery (the aorta) that carries blood to the body. Natalia had heart surgery last week and thankfully is on her way to recovery but she has a long road ahead. Luckily, the surgeons say Natalia may come home as early as December 23rd. 

Alejandro has only seen his mom once during this ordeal and misses his sister greatly. He wishes nothing more than to bring them home for Christmas.

As you can imagine, 14+ days in the hospital and major surgery will be extremely expensive. On bahalf of Sharon and Marco, Alejandro's parents, we are reaching out to his school and soccer families asking for support during this challenging time. 

The goal is to get funds this week so Sharon and Marco can buy the medical necessities needed for home plus ongoing medical expenses/payments.  

You can also help by sending gift cards for the family. During this busy time, everything is greatly appreciated. 

gofundme asks for a donation goal but any contribution amount is welcome and greatly appreciated.
Your positive thoughts and energy are always welcome. Sharon and Marco are so thankful for their extended families who care and support them during this challenging time.

Thank you
