Eric De La Cruz Needs Your Help
Its not every day that you get to reach out and touch a family in need and make a difference. This time the De La Cruz family needs more than a word of advice, they need a heart for Eric. I was pulled to this story by my dear twitter buddy “@heykim” through our virtual friendship and I have been trying every since to do whatever I can, to help this gentle giant named “Eric De La Cruz. His sister Veronica De La Cruz is also my virtual “BFF”, and she is working tirelessly to get him help through all the red tape in Nevada. Below is a letter from Veronica soliciting donations as small as $1.00. Please give what you can, even words of encouragement for Eric.
Eric is a huger hockey fan and even a bigger Ducks fan. Let help him save the puck of his life.
So before I go, I want to thank Star Jones, Kathy Ireland, Demi Moore, and other for reaching out to the De La Cruz Family. I want to also thank my Sports Buddy and Virtual BFF @heykim (twitter) for all her energy in getting the “Ericathon” going.
I am asking for your help. Please take a moment to petition Senator Harry Reid and Nevada’s Congress members for my brother Eric De La Cruz who is dying. He needs a heart transplant. Unfortunately, there is a lot of red tape involved, and getting on the list is not easy.
Eric has a preexisting medical condition and we can’t get him insurance. We have been fighting to get him Medicare disability.
Senator Reid needs to know that there should be a change in our flawed health care system. We are praying that in this instance Nevada and California will work together so that Eric can get on the transplant list.
We are also trying to raise money to assist in paying the massive expenses involved. Please donate anything you can! Even $1.00 would be appreciated!
