Romero Contreras team support fund

We all live our lives without thinking, that THAT will happen to us. We go to work, we celebrate, we laugh, we give, we plan. Henry and his family are not the exception. Hardworking and giving people, with lots of things to do and give. In April of 2018 Henry, who is a main provider in the household became ill. The wrong Crohn's disease diagnosis and steroids treatments made things much worse and in July of 2018 doctors had to make the decision to put him in coma. The rare and unexpected correct diagnosis  was reached during this 5 critical days in coma. Digestive TB and pneumonia also caused by TB. Great team of doctors at Sarasota hospital and constant prayers helped and Henry slowly started getting better. After 3 weeks in intensive care, without getting up and one month in the hospital he made it home. Massive emotional support from friends from over the world and the family did the magic. Learning how to walk again is easier with a 3 year old daugher loving care. But the illness  didn't give up. Hospital returns became a very unfortunate events. Numerous treatments and surgery so far still didn't fix the digestive TB. There is hope, Henry will be transfered to another hospital in Miami that's is specialized in this disease, but is 200 miles away.  In the mean time his wife Natasha, kids and family 33354602_1538247424404157_r.jpegare trying their best to give him all the love and support. 
So we established this page for those interested in assisting family during this tragic time and help.  It will help them care for the children, support Henry and get so much needed feeling of not being alone in this battle and release a huge stress over financial burden.
Every little bit helps!  If you are looking for a way to help the Romero's, this is a simple but very meaningful way to support them in this difficult time!  

The family would like to thank you for all your love and support!
