Coby is the three-month old son of my former student and good friend, Emer Castillo. Coby was diagnosed with chronic liver failure and desperately needs a liver transplant within the next two weeks. Family and friends are raising $300,000 for the procedure, and 300 individuals have been tasked to raise $1,000 each to help defray medical expenses. I am humbly doing my part and appealing to your generosity to contribute any amount to help reach our goal. Thank you so much for your compassion.
