THE STORY:

Hello :) My name is Ricky "Strong Like Bull" Gutierrez. I am fundraising so that my Samia Ibrahim(we both live in SouthernCalifornia) and I may have a wedding and honeymoon that we SO DESPERATELY DESERVE & WANT:) Let me explain our situation- Myself, as well as my Samia, are both handicapped, in a wheelchair/electric scooter and both of us have a speech problem BUT despite the unfortunate trouble/challenges we face on a daily basis, we are very positive, inspirational, amazing and determined individuals that have and continue to beat the many odds against us. Oh, we have another thing in common, we are both college graduates of California State University San Bernardino(CSUSB) We, without complaint and despite the many challenges that we face, we just adapt and do what we have to do to make things work for us. I am a 6 year brain cancer survivor(I was told that my initial surgery to remove my cancerous brain tumor would take my life so I should gather up all my friends and family to say my goodbyes) I was even in diapers and could not feed myself at first and with faith in God, love and support from family and friends and going to physical therapies, I overcame those obstacles. After my initial surgery, I became single and alone for five long lonely years after that first initial surgery because my fiancee of 8 years, left me. I did not think I would fall in love again and then I met the love of my life last year, my Samia:) Samia is an inspirational, determined, beautiful, young woman and despite her illness and the many challenges due to her illness, she is wonderful and amazing!  Samia was diagnosed with MD or AKA- muscular dystrophy, which is weakness in the muscles but I do not see the weakness in her, she is very strong mentally as well has a very strong heart:)She is someone who I want to spend the rest of my life with:) As I mentioned earlier, we are both handicap, we both are low income/on disability so saving up for wedding and a honeymoon is very hard and will take a while. Now, we have managed to save a little so far but like I mentioned before, "it will take such a long time to save up for a wedding and honeymoon", that is why we are asking for your help please. We have both been through a lot and continue to go through a lot in our daily lives. We are so grateful to be alive and enjoy waking up every day to enjoy the day ahead and it would be SO AWESOME if Samia and I could share our lives together, waking up in each others arms and help each other because there are some things that I can do that Samia cannot do and there are some things that I cannot do but Samia can, and we can enjoy each other for the rest of our lives:) Right now, we are in two different cities that are about 30 minutes from each other and to get married and live together, would be a blessing and we could see each other everyday:) WE ARE SO IN LOVE AND WE WANT TO GET MARRIED :)

We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts and hope you may do a good deed that will make you feel so good that you were able to help two people achieve these lifelong and memorable events that would change our lives for the better. Like one of my favorite Michael Jackson songs "Man in the mirror", "You're gonna feel real good that your're gonna make a difference", yeah, you will be making a huge and good difference in mine and my Samia's life:) When we are with each other, all our problems disappear and we feel so awesome/good when we are in each others company:)
