Gus is fighting for his life (and he's a Dad)

On January 8, Gus found out he's going to be a Dad! On April 5, after a long day at work, he had a massive stroke. Gus is now fighting for his life in a hospital bed. His partner, Candice is by his side and six months pregnant with their unborn daughter, who they plan to name Frankie. Gustavo is on a respirator, in and out of a coma. But yesterday he demonstrated that he could hear us, with a thumbs up and CAT scan results are looking good. He has a long road ahead, though and needs help.  To lend a hand, we are all sending Gus our love, our thoughts and if we can, a little money.
