These funds will help with Alfredo's medical costs and related expenses.

Alfredo Chavez, my father, has always been working, working to care for his siblings when he was young, worked in the fields, hard labor, anything to put food on the table and maintain his home. He does not know the meaning of the word "no". Anytime a loved one asks for his help, guidance, advice, he is there 150% all the time. He has pulled our family through so much and his siblings look up to him so much, its un-imaginable what we would all do or be without him. Due to financial problems, he was not able to get a level of higher education, and falls into the group of uninsured, not meeting the requirements for financial assistance. Throughout his illnesses, he never once shed a tear in front of us, always being strong through it all. In 2011, he fought and beat his battle with prostate cancer. Now, cancer has come around for Round 2. In February 2012, he started noticing some lump on the side of his neck, was referred to a specialist but since he was self pay, the doctor refused to treat him. Unfortunately, this is the sad reality of life. No money, no service. The lump grew and became several after some months, so he went to get a second opinion.. He was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma on 08/24/2012, he dared not say "No" to life as well. He said YES! to optimism, to chance, to fate, to a little milestone God has graced him with. He has always been strong and will continue to be, all with a little help from your hearts. The loved ones of Alfredo Chavez are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against Non-Hodkin's lymphoma. All your generous contributions, thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated!! If you want to contact him, wish him luck, simply say hello, you can contact him at home (956) 727-7396 or by mail: 3106 Zacatecas, Laredo, Tx 78046.
