 I am setting this up for a close family friend

Joaquin Hernandez Caballero is a caring, compassionate and hard working man. He has worked so many hours per week to support his family before he was diagnosed with leukemia (cancer of the blood). This devastating disease has affected him and his entire family since he can no longer work and provide for them. He has been hospitalized multiple times and is currently at Westchester Medical Center fighting for his life. Joaquin is extremely ill and fragile; he continues to fight this losing battle as he becomes weaker with each passing day. His cancer is very advanced at this point. As of recently, doctors told him there is nothing more that they can do to help him.

Unfortunately, his family has to spend the holidays without him at home. His wife has been struggling trying to work in order to support their family, be at home for her children and be at the hospital for him. Please consider helping out this family in this time of need by making any size donation possible, sharing this page, or sending your thoughts and prayers for a miracle.

Any contributions that you can make will greatly help this family in need and ease some of their financial burden.

Per Lorena Aragon, his wife,

“Estimados familiares, amigos, conocidos, y almas caritativas, por este medio pedimos de su generoso Corazon para ayudar a Joaquin quien padece de leukemia (cancer de la sangre) el a luchado incansablemente con esta enfermedad por 4 anos. desafortunadamente, en este momento se encuentra hospitalizado una vez mas, pero ahora su condicion esta muy grave.

Cualquier cantidad que puedas dar sera de mucha ayuda para el, su esposa, y sus tres hijos que viven al dia ya que las constants visitas al hospital y cuidados limitan a su esposa a trabajar.

Por favor ayuden a esta familia”
