Go Rahmel Pena !

This is Rahmel and his parents.  He is one of the most genuinely nice people I have ever met.  He is 22 years old and is fighting for his life after an arterial bleed in his colon left him with very little blood.  Being one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, his strong faith has made this tragedy an even greater challenge.  Rahmel is very close to his parents, speaking of them frequently and clearly enjoying their company.  He works at NYU Winthrop in the Electrophysiology Lab and is loved by the entire staff being the kind of guy that is always pleasant, smiling and willing to help.  He is a pleasure to work with.  Rahmel is currently in ICU at Stony Brook Hospital on a ventilator.  His parents haven't left the hospital, taking turns making sure one of them is there for him.   To make this more of a challenge, Rahmel’s family has gone from three incomes down to one.  Any money raised will allow his parents one less stress and focus their attention on Rahmel.  Please help them with whatever you can give and please keep praying for him.

7/20  It has been requested by GoFundMe that I clarify the following: 
- How you know Rahmel: I am a co-worker 
- Aileen's connection to Rahmel: his mother
- How Aileen will use the funds/ deliver the funds to Rahmel:  How ever she and her husband sees fit to deal with Rahmel's situation.  I made her Benificiary of the funds to use as she and her husband desire to help them get through this ordeal as the above so simply put "Any money raised will allow his parents one less stress and focus their attention on Rahmel."  GoFundMe suggested I be very specific so that people contribuing would know exaclty what they were contributing to.  I hope I suceeded in this endeavor.
