Stephen is an active Sailor from Orange Park, Florida who’s currently deployed in Romania. Stephen’s family needed our assistance following complications after the delivery of their fourth child.
Stephen’s wife, Abigail, went into labor three weeks early and delivered their daughter by c-section. Following the procedure, Abigail got an infection which caused her to be bedridden for three weeks. As a result, the family’s finances went to her medical expenses and childcare for their children Sean (4), Stephen (3), Soul (1), and newborn Ariyana, while she recovered.
Because Abigail was on bed rest and unable to work, the family did not have the means to pay for rent or groceries.
We were able to grant Stephen and his family with $1,380 to cover rent for the month of December. We also provided the family with a $500 Publix gift card for groceries.
Thanks to donors like you, we are able to continue our mission of helping military members and their families during times of need. You can help military families like Edgardo’s by donating to Wish For Our Heroes. All contributions go to assisting deserving military members and their families.
