The Ledesma Family

The Ledesma family is a family full of faith, love, kindness and charity. Unfortunately while in Florida,  Rene Ledesma unexpectedly had a stroke and required brain surgery. He is currently in ICU and the family has not left his side.  Rene has just started to wake up and with the grace of God he will make a full recovery.  It will be some time before Rene or his wife Maria will be able to return to work not to mention when the family will be able to return home to Illinois. The emotional, physical and financial stress can become overwhelming and we would love to lighten the load for this family.  Any help would be most appreciated as well as your prayers!
