My Dad Adrian Wants to Live

My name is Yoselin and my dad Adrian Nequiz has very advanced cancer and needs urgent surgery to save his life. 

We are setting up this fundraiser to pay for medical bills.

Adrian is having urgent surgery in July 2021.   His condition was misdiagnosed for over 2 years and is now very advanced. 

Expected medical bills will be in excess of $100,000.
He will need chemotherapy and radiation treatments for 3 months following the surgery and then medication and follow up care for the rest of his life. 

Who is my dad?
Adrian Nequiz is 40 years old (born on New Years Day 1981). My dad has been married to my mom Esmeralda for 18 years.  He has 3 school-aged children including me Yoselin age 17, Emily age 14, and Eli age 7.

My dad runs his own carpet cleaning business and works very long hours. 

Now that he is sick my mom is taking over the hard work of the business and he is helping as best he can. 


Why is my dad so Amazing? 
He is very hard working and is the pillar of our family. 

People say that he is the kindest person they have ever met - I am his daughter and of course I love him, but I really think this is true!  

He loves helping out people who are in need - always helping the less fortunate even if it is a hardship for him to help others.  

We don't have a lot of money, and he helps to pay for other family members expenses when they are in need. 

He has a huge heart and is always putting others first. 

He loves to learn about things he doesn't understand or know - he is very open minded.

He volunteers at my sister's school even when he doesn't have the extra time.  

He is very patient and kind,

He has always been involved in our lives making sure we are good students and attending as many school activities as possible.  

One week he volunteered to clean the school's carpets for free that took 3 full days.   

He never ends a conversation without saying: "God Bless You!" 
My dad is Catholic, but he accepts all faiths and loves the diversity of his community no matter how anyone defines their faith.  

My family would be so grateful for any assistance to help with the upcoming large medical bills that we are unable to pay.   

My dad has given back to people his entire life without ever asking for anything in return.   Now we are hoping, with support from the community, he can continue to live and love for many years to come.  

In gratitude, Yoselin Nequiz. 


My dad Adrian is the pillar of our family!
