LV Ambulance founder needs help!

NOTE: THE GOAL FOR THE MEDICAL BILLS HAS BEEN MET, THANKS TO THE INCREDIBLE GENEROSITY OF SMALL AND LARGE DONORS! ANY ADDITIONAL FUNDS WILL BE USED TO HELP THE LA VENTANA AMBULANCE SERVICE THAT LUPITA RUNS. THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT DONATED!! La Ventana ambulance founder needs our help! Did you know our ambulance in La Ventana was run by a VOLUNTEER? Guadalupe Cosio Barrera ➡️ otherwise known as "Lupita," our friend is in need of our financial charity and although it is hard for her to ask in an open forum, she's asking the La Ventana kiteboarding community for help. ❤️ Her husband, Gustavo Prieto Martinez, has an "abdominal aortic aneurism," and is in need of immediate surgery. They cannot afford it. They have three daughters: Stephanie, Britney & Tabatha. The bills are going to pile up on her very fast with her husband in the hospital. Here are some facts about this amazing and kind hearted woman: ➖ Lupita, along with Justina Dominguez and a few other women in town, founded Fundación AZUL Cerralvo A.C. - the first non profit dedicated to children, teens, young adults with disabilities and elderly fold in need of care. ➖ Lupita started the ambulance program alone 7 years ago, after her husband suffered a heart attack and she had to do CPR without knowing what she was doing. She saved him and made it her mission to prepare herself to serve our community. ❤️ Every time you hear that ambulance, Lupita & her team are VOLUNTEERING to provide you with care in your time of need. ➡️ This is her time of need. ➖ Lupita's team serves all the athletes on the water and they cater to every event La Ventana has hosted. ➖ Lupita never stops giving. Her life is dedicated to serving others.
