Help Sam Heras! He lost his family.
The last year and half, however, has been a different story. On April 6th, 2015, he lost his father Rey to cancer. Dealing with his loss and trying to continue living normal lives became an insurmountable burden for Sam and his mother, Isabel. Isabel was hospitalized several times after his passing, and during her most recent hospital visit, Sam was notified they had been evicted from their house. He then quit football and started working full time to help support her.
On October 25th, 2016, Isabel Heras passed away.
In the last year and a half, Sam has lost football, his home, and both of his parents, and gained a financial and emotional burden no seventeen year old should have to carry.
Please help us start to rebuild this young man's life. He needs help with everyday necessities a parent would normally provide for a child. Sam intends to use the funds to help pay for college.
Every little bit helps. Sam appreciates anything you can do.
I, Mya Barslou, from Saint Paul, MN, started this campaign on behalf of my coworker at Chilis Resatuarant in Roseville, MN, Sam Heras. All proceeds from this campaign will be withdrawn directly by Sam to help pay for his every day needs as well as college after his high school graduation. Thank you for your contributions.
Sam dreams of being able to continue his education after high school by enrolling in either a nursing program or going to culinary school. He also plans to use a portion of the proceeds to buy a reliable car to make the commute to work and school easier.
Please continue to keep Sam in your hearts and prayers.
Sam, our son Matthew (drama student director) shared your story with us. You should not have to go thru this alone. We did donate some money and we are glad more (much needed) money is coming in. It seems you might have a strong support network already, but if there is anything we can do for you (including providing a roof over your head), right now, in taking care of business, or later on, we will be very happy to do so! I am sure you or your friends will be able to find us.
I do not know this young man but my daughter attends the same school. And she came home today sad that this young man had to go threw this. She told me that she had Hurd Sam had to pick up a second shift at work to pay for his moms funeral. This message is for all that may see the large number of donations. Even if this gofundme has reached the amount & more please remember this young man has to pay for his mother's funeral and finish school. So please still donate. No child should have to go threw what he is going threw.
Sam first and foremost my deepest condolences for the loss of your parents. May they Rest In Peace. As for you I hope that you go back and finish your school & continue your education. Please be open to Sadie Shirlee Wadsley Hawkins for offering there home to you. That would be a big start for you. Also get involved in a youth church group. God bless you. Stay strong God will help you through this.

Invest the money and your time wisely so that your dreams become reality and your friends become 'family'.
