  • Italo's Funeral : Update

    Hi All,

    We are so incredibly humbled by your generosity. We honestly did not expect for all of this amount to come in which is why our original goal amount was lower. We are updating the goal amount to reflect the total amount we are looking at paying by tomorrow and wanted to be transparent in why the goal amount is increasing. Thank you for your help and for your kindness.

About this fundraiser

We lost our father, Italo Hernandez, unexpectedly on Thursday, April 13th. He came in for a scheduled heart surgery and unfortunately this surgery did not go as planned. Our father did not have a funeral expenses life insurance plan.  We thank you for any help towards these significant costs in lieu of flowers. The total bill amount we will have to pay with funeral and cemetery arrangements is $18,000.
