On May 21, Arturo was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Doctors found a large tumor in his right testicle and after much deliberation have decided that it must be removed to eliminate any additional spreading.

Though there is never a convenient time for a terrible life event such as this one, this is the worst possible time. Arturo has just recently begun his first semester back to school in 7 years in hopes of finishing his associate’s degree, is holding down a full time job, and most regrettably, is NOT covered with any insurance.

It is because of this unfortunate situation that we have now taken on the burden of absorbing all of the medical costs related to this procedure as well as follow up care. The practice that we are using does not accept any Charity Care or Care Credits and has left us with no other choice but to pay out of pocket.

We have not let this poor fortune get us down, and will continue to be strong through this trying time. Here is where you can help, on Saturday, June 1st, we will be having an afternoon/evening fundraiser and Bar-B-Q in honor of Arturo and his positivity and determination to power through this tough time. We will be accepting any and all donations to aid in his medical expenses and recovery. Arturo will be out of work for approximately 2 to 3 weeks that will put an additional strain on the situation.

No donation is too small or unappreciated, so every cent counts. Help Arturo receive the care that he deserves so he can bravely and proudly march into his future happy and healthy. Thank you so much for your generosity.

If you have any questions regarding the event, or where additional donations can be sent, please feel free to call or text Molly at: 973-592-7739 with your name, or send an email to: m.brennan08@gmail.com
