Letter to the Editor

RE:  David Aguilar and Family                                                            
May 24, 2021

I am writing you this letter with hopes for media coverage for the family of David Aguilar.  I am and know the pain and financial strains that families go through when you lose someone to COVID.  Since, October 2020 till January 15th, 2021 I lost a niece, 2 cousins and my brother.  I would really want to give back to this family.  I know that the days, weeks and months are going to be difficult for them mentally and financially.

Last Monday, Mr. Aguilar called me to ask me if I knew of any houses for rent in the area.  I told him that I did not know of none now but would post something on fb to see if someone out there knew of one.

Mr. Aguilar is presently at St. Charles hospital where he was transferred from St. Vincent’s after a battle with COVID and a heart attack that left him with some paralysis and is now receiving REHAB therapy to help him get his functions back.  He lost his wife to COVID while in the hospital.   His 8-year-old son who had a kidney transplant at the age of 2 who also is in the hospital with COVID and will have to start dialysis again.  He also had his older son who was hospitalized with COVID as well.

They live in a rental but do not want to return to that home since there are so many memories of his wife there and David will have difficulties with the stairs and will require a one floor home due to his inability to walk now.

I have spoken to Rosendo Ramirez from the Homeboys on Main Street in East Toledo about helping me with a fundraiser to help this family out along with other members of the community, but we really need some media help.

Thank you for your attention to this matter, I remain. 

Melinda A. Sánchez
