Fund for Michael Brizuela

Michael Brizuela was hit by a car while walking home from work early in the morning on Friday. Upon being rushed to the local hospital, the family was informed that his injuries were too severe to survive.  While in intensive care it was discovered that Michael was an organ donor. He was operated on at 4:00pm today as he breathed his last earthly breath and offered his organs and body to save others’ lives. 

Michael has been a kind hearted spirit his whole life. He served in the Marine reserves, was a nurse, and continued to better himself, further pursuing his education in his later life. He was serving as a security guard in his most recent job, always thinking of others and how he could keep them safe. Michael was a service oriented man, always giving of himself and gave of himself to the very end.

This GoFundMe account is to help minimize the costs of the hospital and the arrangements that will soon be necessary as his family goes
through this tough time. We would greatly appreciate any kind of support, not just monetary. Your prayers, thoughts, and energy will go a long way.

Please help us share this page and raise awareness for Michael (or Mike... however you knew him). He was kind and loving and reliable and always willing to lend a helping hand. He knew when to be serious and when to be goofy. He always had a smile, an open ear, an arm draped around your shoulder. His sudden and shocking departure from our lives stings sorely.

We thank each and every one of you for supporting Mike and his family in his time of need and we will continue to update this page. Please pray for him today.

We love you Michael, and will always remember your deep joy and love of life. We will remember how you never gave up, how hard working and persistent you were. We will remember your love of family and dedication to your country.
