Well for Water
Hi, my name is Rebecca Arciaga, and I want to fund a veteran.

I recently met Mike, a Veteran of the Korean & Vietnam Wars. Mike served in the Army from 1964 to 1966. During his deployment, Mike was sprayed with Agent Orange. Today, he has kidney and heart disease. But he is not giving up. He has a stent in his heart. Though his kidneys have failed, he is on dialysis. Mike is also courageously fighting both lung and kidney cancer.

Mike lives with his loving wife in Modesto, California. They sought to refinance their home through the company I work with in order to pay for a new well, as the old one ran dry. The lender said they did not qualify: they first had to get a new well. Hard to do when your funds have run dry!

Water now has to be trucked in at very high expense.

My company’s motto is “A Better Way,” and it is one that I, too, live by. Mike has earned the right to a better quality of life than what he and his family now have. I am setting up this gofundme campaign to get him that better life.

Mike faces a stark choice: pay medical expenses or pay for drinking water. I want him to choose both! The estimate for the well is $45,000.

Through this campaign, we are simply trying to get a veteran some clean water to drink—and keep a roof over his head.

After all, he deserves as much for the service he—and his supportive family—gave to our country.

Let’s go fund Mike!

P.S. Mike is due to see an oncologist to develop a treatment plan. We will keep you updated as things progress.
