Joaquin's Medical Treatment and Bills
Fungal meningitis is rare and usually the result of spread of a fungus through blood to the spinal cord.

Joaquin has been sick since 12/23/14  he went to emergency where they told him he was having complicated migraines but really just kept getting worse he tried to work through it but kept getting worse.  He started to forget things like the fact he wrecked his vehicle and  finally on 2/11/15 he had a spinal tap where they finally diagnosed him with a very aggressive case of valley fever/meningitisand had developed a fungus on his brain due to the sickness  he spent a week in the hospital and will be on daily meds an the rest of his life which cost 350 a month and also will be out of work for 6 weeks and will be unable to work.  He had  been out of work for 2 weeks prior and now he wil be another 6 weeks so total 2 months without working!  Medical bills are thru the roof and so is his ongoing treatment.

Please help me to raise some money for his treatment, family and medication.  God Bless !!!
