Help Anthony After Heart Surgery

$2,513 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 32 months
Anthony (Jr.), a construction worker, his wife Cecilia and two young daughters, ages 7 and 11, have lived in a Texas suburb for 10 years enjoying the year-round warm weather. The family practices Soccer and Volleyball for the school team and plays on the swing set their dad built for them on Christmas (I know, I was there J).

In July, during a routine yearly checkup, something didn’t sound right in Jr.’s chest. They soon found out his heart was enlarged and the diagnosis was Aortic Valve Disease. This disease went undetected since birth. Had they not found it now, he would have had 1-2yrs to live. Anthony completed his surgery successfully Thursday, Sept. 15. He is in the ICU now and will be in the hospital for another two weeks. After that, he will be on medication for the rest of his life.

The medical bills have been piling up from before the open heart surgery. Insurance only covers certain expenses and sometimes only partially. With Junior out of work as his body adapts to the new heart valve and Cecilia needed to care for Junior and the kids, income will be sparse. Cecilia is always ahead of the game and has been planning her return to teaching since receiving the news, but that can’t happen until Anthony is on his feet. With two kids, a mortgage and medical bills, this strong, persevering family needs your help more than ever.

Please help Anthony with his medical bills and the family’s living expenses during this difficult time. Support this young family by letting Jr. get some rest so he can get his humorous and caring-self healthy to watch his daughters grow up. This hardworking family is extremely gracious for your generosity and will use your donations to ensure their family keeps thriving. Please donate anything you can as soon as possible, every penny counts and is appreciated!

Thank you for your generosity and helping Anthony and his family. Anthony is finally home now resting with his family coming to help take care of him and his daughters. No one in the household is working, so we still need your help. Any donation will do! Thank you!

Thank you all for the support so far!!! Junior is still in the ICU, but doing well. The kids are in good spirits, but miss their dad. You all can help make the transition back to every day life easier with a donation as little at $20 (that goes a long way!) Thank you!
