My wife Carmen E Ortiz and I (Pedro J Ortiz) received heart-breaking news on July 16, 2013. My wife's sister (Erica Rachael) chatted via facebook to my wife that their father, Luis Gerardo Niquinga-Castro was diagnosed with prostate cancer. The news devastated us and we wanted to support financially. The problem is that the cancer has spread and surgery is not an option. He needs frequent chemotherapy treatment and our entire family have no financial resources to help. We (my wife and I) have three children and one source of income. My wife's family in Ecuador is barely making ends meet with their own expenses. We tried looking for aid, but no insurance or medical aid is available to him. We only ask that you please try to support an ill stricken loved one that could use a little love and compassion from friends and family during these times. Your financial contribution is grately needed and appreciated.

El 16 de Julio mediante una plática via chat con mi hermana se nos dió la penosa noticia de que mi Padre fue diagnosticado con cáncer prostático, La noticia nos devastó y hoy tratamos de apoyar económicamente. El problema es que el cáncer se ha esparcido y la cirugía no es una opción así que necesitará de tratamiento de quimioterapia y nuestra familia no cuenta con los recursos ecómicos necesarios para cubrir todo este tratamiento médico Nosotros (mi esposa y yo) tienemos tres hijos y una sola fuente de ingresos. La familia de mi esposa en Ecuador les alcanza apenas para cubrir sus con sus propios gastos. Hemos intentado buscar ayuda, pero no hay seguro o ayuda médica disponible para él. Sólo pedimos que por favor puedan apoyar a un ser querido enfermo que podría utilizar un poco de amor y compasión de los amigos y de la familia en estos tiempos. Su participación financiera se eternamente agradecida, necesaria y apreciada. Dios los bendiga!

Respectfully and grateful,

The Ortiz-Niquinga Family.
