Life takes us to unexpected places sometimes. My beloved uncle Aurelio Acosta (my father's youngest sibling) was recently diagnosed with cancer and this life changing event has taken a toll on his family. He is the primary sole provider for the family, and his wife has taken time off from her job to care for him. As you can imagine medical expenses, mortgage, utility bills, and transportation continue to pile up. My uncle has always been a very hardworking and humble individual. He has worked as a farm worker all his life and I'm certain if he could he would be out in this cold and rainy weather working to provide for his family. I kindly ask you to embrace my effort in helping my uncle and his family through such hardship.
