Dear friends,

We came to you six months ago and your generosity ($17,000 raised) enabled Andres to hire a dedicated nanny to look after Gabriel and Camila several hours a day so he could spend more time with Catalina.  Andres has repeatedly told us that it was a gift that he will never forget. 

Now, with the heartbreaking end to Catalina's short life, we would like you to consider giving again to the Del Valle family.  Two years of cancer treatment has indebted Andres well beyond his means.  He has kept an exhausting pace, working seven days a week, staying each night by Catalina's side in the hospital, and caring for his children.  As strong as Andres is, he is near collapse.  As we all mourn the loss of Catalina, Andres needs to rest and to grieve, at least for a few weeks, so he can rebuild his strength and get back to work caring for his family. 

As many of you may have lived through, you know that there are additional costs that come with the end of life.  Altogether, the bills, the brief reprieve and the funeral costs will total about $30,000.  Therefore, we have made $47,000 our new fundraising total.  To reach that goal, we must reach out to the wide group of friends that have been touched by Andres and Catalina so we ask that you both give generously yourself and share this plea with others.

Thank you for your generous spirit,

friends of Andres and Catalina
