Tragedy Strikes Alex Badilla Family

On March 23, Alex Badilla's younger brother, Junior was diagnosed with metastasized brain cancer and immediately underwent an emergency operation in an attempt to remove it.  Junior is only 31 years old and the situation is grim.  He has three children ages 11, 7, and 4. 

In addition to extreme emotional distress on the entire family, the financial burden to support Junior's young family is now Alex's loving responsibility. 

He will approach this as he approaches everything he does with great love, energy and care - but they really need our help at this time.  Alex is such a wonderful guy, a great friend to the paragliding community, a paragliding instructor, and a tandem pilot. 

All of us can help Alex accomplish the demanding task ahead of him.  With many helping hands, we can show our support and help lighten his extreme financial load.   

Please help Alex support his family in this time of tragedy. Because GoFundMe doesn't support Costa Rica directly, the funds will be maintained by Alex's dear and long time friend in the States allowing the Badilla Family quick and easy access to your generous donations.
