More Info

Crystal Lara Montez is a woman with so many amazing qualities that these words can't truly do her justice. She is a person who cares deeply about her family, her friends, and virtually anyone lucky enough to know her.

As many of you are likely aware, Crystal is in ICU fighting for her life. Without going into too much detail about Crystal's medical condition (for privacy reasons), what started as Kidney Stones turned into a blockage in her kidneys which turned into a very serious infection. She's been in ICU since 31 Dec.

There is still much to be discovered and decided concerning her medical treatment and recovery. What we do know is it will be a long recovery. The emotional toll of the ensuing battle will be immense and that is without taking into account the financial strain this will place on both Crystal and her husband Vincent. It is with that in mind that I have created this account.

Vincent, her husband is on FMLA from his job in the oil fields. Fortunately, FMLA will hold his job, but he will not be getting paid. Vincent is the sole provider for Crystal and he also provides financial support to her family. The medical expenses alone are overwhelming. Between tests, scans, drug treatments, and other medical procedures, the costs will add up quickly. Combine those with the time off needed for Vincent to join Cyrstal throughout this process and the mounting travel expenses and household bills, and the need for financial assistance becomes very clear. Crystal is already several weeks into this exhausting and costly process so any financial assistance that can be provided would be of benefit immediately.

Crystal's impact on our lives, and this world, has been enormous. At this point, we are reaching out to friends, family, potential donors, and anyone who has been privileged to know Crystal and Vincent over the years and feels compelled to offer financial assistance. Donations of any amount will make a difference and are genuinely appreciated!

SIDE NOTE: Crystal's journey has taught my family and me so much about the importance of showing the people you love just how much you love them every day. It’s shown us that one person’s strength can stretch so far and Crystal has proven that people can overcome things that don’t seem possible.
