I Just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who helped with the fundraising for little Juan Carlos. Doña Rosy and Cristina at DIF, Jen Pobiak and Sally Hurwitch, our anonymous friend, and all of the others who proved again how generous this community is.
Juan Carlos was a 2 month old baby who had an auto immune disease. We had started raising funds in anticipation of a bone marrow transplant. But unfortunately this little fighter did not make it. His young parents were strapped with a hefty bill from the funeral home in Mexico City, and the community here was able to achieve the goal and take that burden off of his grieving parent’s shoulders. Thank you all for answering the call for help!
Nancy Murray works in conjunction with DIF on various civil service projects. You can find more about some of the on-going projects, including a children’s English language library in the “It’s All About the Kids” facebook group.
