The family and friends of Eduardo Menjivar are uniting to raise money to rescue him from kidney carcinoma. Please be a part of this miracle

Eduardo is an exempleary husband and father; a kind-hearted, cheerful and positive person. But in 1999 he was diagnose with kidney carcinoma, that year he had a surgery to remove his right kidney, and he had to go to check ups every six monts. He went into remission. In 2006, the carnicoma appears again, this time in the left adrenal gland, in the eight rib and adjacent to the aorta artery with nodules in the lungs he had to receive chemotherapy for a year and a half, then went into remission again. But in 2012 the carcinoma returns in the only kidney that he has -the left one- the liver and in the lungs... this diagnosis was devastating, so much that up to now we are trying to assimilate the news, specially his wife and kids. Eduardo has been married for 30 years to his wife Leny and they have 3 wonderful children. They are hard woring people, Eduardo use to be a mattress salesman working for commissions and his wife Leny bakes cookies, cakes and pastries at home. So money has never been abundant, but that was never an issue, because they had health, were together as a family and as God´s beloved children. They still consider themselves fortunate because the have an inmense Faith and Hope in the goodness and love of God. He has always been an active member of the Church with his whole family, although now retired for his health problems. His wife says that there isn´t a word that could describe what Eduardo is as a person o what he means to her, her children and family and that is why we are appealing to all of you in order to get the economical help they need for this treatment, since they have been spending all that they have had since 1999 and don´t have a health insurance to cover for anything. We want to take away from them part of the economical worries, so they can focus all of their energy and strenght on winning this battle. Please, keep Eduardo, his wife Leny and his children: Byron, Eduardo and Carolina in your prayers at all times. We are counting on you to perform the miracle of rescuing Eduardo. Thank you very much and God Bless you always.
