Diego’s Story

Site created on March 2, 2021

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Hello, my name is Diego, I am a young man of 19 years old. I have been living a nightmare, a nightmare that I want to end. I do not know where to start, 11 months ago my mother Rosario suffered a stroke which left her hemiplegic and with difficulty speaking. I have worked hard for my mother's recovery and she has made good progress. Physical therapy, speech therapy and her medications have helped a lot. I used my savings for college and worked day and night for my family. Unfortunately I have not been able to find a job for 2 months and my savings are gone. We lost the house we lived in and many other things, but I have not lost hope. A month ago I was diagnosed with stomach cancer, this made me very depressed. It increased my depression and suicidal thoughts, but I want to fight. I want to save my mother and my little brother. Leonardo is my sister's son, she died of covid last year. You can't imagine how this child has suffered, I don't want him to suffer any more or lose someone else. 
As I said my mother was getting better but unfortunately her mitral valve is damaged and she needs urgent surgery, unfortunately I don't have the money. I also want to start chemotherapy, I want to fight for my life and be there for my little brother. I feel bad asking for help, but it is the only thing I have left. 
Please help me, don't do it for my mom or me, do it for my little brother. I don't want him to suffer anymore.
I will be uploading my day by day here and how the progress is going, I will leave you my Gofundme fundraiser. Help me by sharing, if I reach seven thousand people who donate 10 dollars I could reach the goal.
