THE STORY:

Who are you helping? Meet Faustino Gonzalez, At the age of 20, Faustino was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy (MD), a progressive disease that affects the muscles and causes weakness and loss of muscle mass. Faustino has been slowly losing his ability to control his limbs due to the progression of his disease. Miraculously, however, the disorder has not progressed as quickly as was suggested giving Faustino the ability to live an undeniably productive life with slight independence. He currently works part-time as an at-home agent for a major airline. In addition to his job, he maintains himself engaged by playing an active role in his church as a bible studies teacher at St. Francis of Assisi. Whether on the job, volunteering, or being a friend, Faustino goes above and beyond to do the right thing for others. As a truly compassionate and charismatic individual, Faustino is easily adored by all those who meet him. Faustino is someone to truly admire because of his determination to live a fulfilling life despite his challenges. In his attempt to live to the fullest, he also seeks to inspire his community. What are we asking from you? Because of Faustino’s active role in his community, we are asking that you help us in raising the funds ($4,000.00) needed to purchase a new or used vehicle for him. In particular, a van that could be used to fit the ramp the family has available. The current vehicle that is being used to transport him is having issues, making it difficult for his family to shuttle him to the events he needs to attend. How much are we asking? We are asking for help in raising $4,000.00 The money will be used for the cost of a down payment. We are hoping to purchase a Dodge Caravan that will be modified to be wheelchair accessible. How can you help? Please, if you are able to donate to this cause, consider donating as little as $1 or as much as you are willing to provide to help get closer to our desired goal. Thank you and may you be blessed for your kind deed.
