John R., a father of 5 children (all of whom are in school), works as maintenance staff in an apartment complex. His twin girls, Juana and Viviana, are 15 year old both sophomores, Mario a 13 year old Eighth grader, Roman is a 7 year old third grader and the youngest Liliana a 5 year old kindergarten at. Elizabeth is his partner and a mother of his two youngest children raising all 5 kids. On Thursday July 21, 2011, John went to the Santa Rosa Hospital downtown for what was thought to be a routine issue from his diabetes and was subsequently diagnosed with Acute Lymophatic Lukemia Stage 4. This family was shaken to the core with the news. They have begun Chemotherapy and the family goes daily to the hospital but the cost of gas,oil etc. -- and keeping their old van running and still having the normal bills -- has drained them. "I ask today for prayers for this family and for those of you who are able, a donation to help get the school kids ready for the upcoming school year and to help this family meet their needs, and for final expenses should the outcome be fatal. Since his diagnosis, John has not bee working. I thank you for your generosity and your prayers and may this family and each of you who read this be blessed." Update: Unfortunately, John passed away. GL continues to provide support to Elizabeth and the kids.
