If you were going to die in 6 months…
Imagine if you knew you were going to die in 6 months, What would you do?
But what if you had a family to support but now they had to take care of you, what then?
As many of you know we have been doing the Burn the Fat, Feed the Family Program here at the Miami Fit Body Boot Camp since August and it is coming to an end September 30th. I wanted you to meet “the family” we are raising money for in the Burn the Fat, Feed the Family program. This is the Chavez Family. They are a family of 5. Mom is Maria Dolores, Dad is Noel, the oldest son Joel (18 y/o, not pictured), the middle son is Edgard (14 y/o), and the youngest son is Christopher (4 y/o).
Why they need your help…
First of all they are a hard working family filled with faith and love. Unfortunately, Noel (dad) was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and has less than 6 months to live according to doctors. He has had to stop working do to epileptic seizures and severe migraines. Maria has had to stay home to tend to him because they can’t afford someone to take care of him. Joel, the oldest son had to drop out of high school initially to take job in order to help support his family. For many of us that is unfathomable to have a child be the main support but necessity allows us to do extraordinary things. Fortunately, after the generous help of the church Joel now has returned to school to finish his high school degree. They have been getting help by people like us raising money to help provide the essentials.
“…My jaw hit the ground.”
If you are like me when I heard this story my jaw hit the ground. I feel fortunate that my parents are healthy, supportive, and able to provide for my 3 brothers and sisters, and myself as we grew up. In fact we all went to private school and graduated from college. So this experience was very new to me. But last Sunday I had the good fortune to meet this great family. They welcomed my wife, son, and myself like one of their own and offered the little they had. They expressed their gratitude for our team of boot campers that are helping them. They are givers and I feel that we as a community could give back to them. They are perfect for the Burn the Fat, Feed the Family Program*. As the saying goes, “To those that much is given, much will be required.”
*NOTE: Burn the Fat, Feed the Family program is a program we set up at the Miami Fit Body Boot Camp with the hope of educating and helping a family in need. The way it works is for everyone that signs up for at least 1 month of the boot camp, we will donate half of the membership to feed this family. (If you are interested in helping this family and getting in great shape call me at 305-741-0560).
What do they need?
So far the Miami Fit Body Boot Camp has donated $500 thanks to you guys who have referred others and from those those of you that have already signed up for the boot camp. Our goal is to raise $1000 by the end of September so we can pay for 2 months of rent and get groceries for 1 month. Also they need some clothes for the kids. Look at the list below. If you feel called to purchase one of the below items for the kids please call me first at 305-741-0560 so that we don’t have 10 people all getting the same thing. I appreciate your support and I know they are very grateful for your help.
