Meet B+ Hero, Lisandro
Lisandro is a 15 yr old boy who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer) in Dec. 2014 and it has now spread to his lungs. He lives with aunt and uncle, both who are blind. The Social Worker reports that they are both “attentive, diligent caregivers who work hard to support Lisandro”. The aunt and uncle make approximately $20,000/yr.
Until recently, Lisandro slept on the family’s couch in their living room. The Social Worker was able to obtain a hospital bed for him but he has no bedding for it. All this family asked for was $300 to buy bedding, pillows, and other necessary supplies to make Lisandro more comfortable.
Thank you for enabling us to help Lisandro and his family!
