Arturo and Cande Hernandez

Many of us are fortunate to know Cande and Arturo Hernandez, a loyal, cheerful, loving couple. 

Arturo was diagnosed with cancer over 3 and half years ago.  He has endured multiple surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation.  Throughout much of this time he continued to work with a positive attitude, determination, and strength.  This year Arturo’s condition deteriorated leaving him unable to work.  Arturo recently began hospice.  This past week Cande was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Cande is currently Arturo's primary care giver while working intermittently.    Her future treatment holds surgery and radiation. 

Cande’s commitment to taking care of Arturo during his final days and her own future cancer battle are both emotionally and financially challenging.  Please help Cande and Arturo by assisting with their financial struggles and donate.  Your support in prayers and financial assistance are truly appreciated during this difficult time.  Thank you!
