We are seeking funding for a new laptop computer with software for our son Alejandro to use for school. He will be entering high school next year and this will be an extraordinarily useful tool to aid him in his education. Any and all assistance to help Alejandro obtain a laptop will be greatly appreciated.
This young man is very deserving of a good quality laptop. He will be able to complete his homework on up-to-date equipment and software, providing him an additional opportunity to excel as a student. Alejandro aspires to be an Engineer and he is a math whizz. His grades reflect his intelligence and his ability to continue working through personal issues.
Alejandro is also an exceptional citizen at school and in the community. He is involved with MADD and Relay For Life as well as other community events.
Our school district, gratefully, does its best to provide students with solid education and learning opportunities, however it is not possible for them to provide electronic devices for the children.
Alejandro has faced and bravely dealt with multiple extreme challenges in his young life. He was injured by a drunk driver at the age of 7; when he was 11, his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, immediately followed up by a mastectomy; and when Alejandro was 12 his 10 year old cousin, Ithalia, passed away from Leukemia.
Alejandro has demonstrated his bravery, emotional strength, and outstanding integrity during each of these traumatic and emotionally draining events. After he was injured by the drunk driver, we asked him what he wanted to have happen. After explaining all available options to him, he asked us to ask the judge to get her help so she would not hurt anyone else. During my cancer treatment, he helped to take care of me and he was right by my side every day. At the time of Ithalia's death, Alejandro provided great comfort and love to all of the members of our family.
Each of these tragic events alone has caused stress and pain, however, coming in back to back like they have, has pushed our family to its emotional and financial limits. We would love to be able to provide Alejandro with this equipment, however the afore mentioned incidents have severely limited our financial ability to do so.
Thank you for taking the time to read our request.
We hope you have a pleasant day and God bless you.
