Sending Love To The Cruz Family

The Cruz family has recently been through some difficulties. Their son, Eduardo, had a stroke last week. This especially alarming because Eduardo is only 9 years old. He's  doing much better now, and after four days in the hospital, he is back at home. His mouth is half paralyzed and his left arm and hand have limited mobility and strength. He is starting his journey of recovery now with physiotherapy. The main issue now is understanding why this would to a child. His heart is strong, but the doctors have found some issues with lipoprotein A. He is on medicine to control these issues but more tests are needed. 

Your support is greatly appreciated to ease the added burden of medical expenses to this already tragedic situation.
