Support for the Rosas Family

$6,510 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 62 people in 3 months
Created October 11, 2018
Yesterday, October 10, 2018, the Rosas family suffered a huge set back with the care and treatment for Sahid Jr. After exhausting all treatment options, the doctors informed the family that Jr. is no longer a candidate for further intervention. 

Sahid Sr. has missed a tremendous amount of work since February when Jr. was diagnosed. Between hospital stays, doctors visits, radiation appointments and Jr. needing around the clock care, Sahid Sr. has taken a huge financial loss in recent weeks.

The first fundraiser proved to help the family tremendously! He was able to catch up on lost wages and not worry about finances for a while so that he could focus on Jr.'s treatment. The family was so grateful for the generosity that the community of family, friends, and strangers all showed! (Side note: When Youcaring and GoFundMe merged, we lost the first fundraiser completely.)

Sahid Sr., Karolina, Jr.'s grandmother, and aunt have not left his side. His current condition requires 24 hour monitoring which means they're awake around the clock caring for him. No one knows how long this type of care will be be needed. This is where WE intervene. With his family all at his side around the clock, they're going to need all of the financial resources that the community can provide. I know that we can show this family that there are people out there that want to help and that deeply care.

ANY financial contribution you make will be so very appreciated. All monies raised will go directly to supplementing Sahid Sr.'s income and medical expenses associated with alternative treatment for Jr. If you're unable to help financially, please consider sharing the link to this fundraiser.

I will continue to update this fundraiser as things unfold with Jr.'s care as well as updates from the family.

Please pray for Jr. and his family. Thank you all so very much for the support!

(2)GoFundMe has requested an update on two specific things:

1. The withdrawal plan to get the funds from the campaign to the ultimate beneficiary/ies:
-The funds were recently transferred to my personal checking account. Those funds posted to the account this morning (10/25/18) in a total amount of $6254.30 (four total deposits of $96.50, $96.80, $436.35, $5624.65). John and I will go to the bank tomorrow morning to remove the funds in cash and deliver them to Sahid Sr. A time has yet to be determined.
2. How the funds will be spent (please be specific as possible):
-We raised the money with the intent to help Sahid pay his bills during the time that he was caring for Jr. Monies raised for this campaign will be spent on living expenses and bills. I personally do not know Sahid’s personal finances.

Just an update:

Jr.’s health is continuing to decline. His breathing has become difficult and his pain has increased. They have him on oxygen and lots of medications for pain and anxiety. The doctors are saying that his condition could change quickly and it appears that changes are happening as I type this update.

Thank you to all whom donated and shared this link. We surpassed the goal within the last hour and I know the family is incredibly grateful for all the support. Please keep sharing, as they will need the financial support in the upcoming days. Please continue to pray for Jr. and his family.
