First off, we can’t thank you all enough for the generous outpouring of love and support you have shown the Lopez family. It is overwhelming. We have all been forever changed by Ava’s story. As parents, we want to shelter our children from harm and make them all better when they’re hurt. Ava has an incredible team of doctors/nurses who are doing everything in their power to heal her. So many of you have called on our Heavenly Father to protect Ava and provide strength and healing. In just seven days, God has performed miracles and we know this is just a small glimpse of what is to come.
During these times of crisis, it’s wonderful to see humanity at its best. Many of us feel completely helpless and are yearning to do something. Manny and Traci have an incredible support system of family and friends around them, but it is our duty to ensure that we keep them healthy when their physical and emotional health is compromised.
If you or a few families would like to provide dinner to the Lopez family, please log on to http://www.carecalendar.org/ with the following credentials:
Calendar ID: 15804
Security Code: 9927
Once you have scrolled to the May calendar, you will notice that the word dinner appears every other day, beginning tomorrow, May 1st. Once you have found a date that works for you, make sure the word dinner is in red. If the dinner appears in green, then it is already covered. After you click on the red dinner, a screen will appear prompting you to enter helper information (ie. Name, Main Dish, Phone and E-mail). Please be sure to enter the Main Dish you are preparing to avoid overlap.
Our goal would be to have a 5-6 person dinner delivered to the Lopez home around 7:00pm every other night. In the event that a family member is not able to be at the home, a close friend will be there to intercept the meal.
This is one less thing the family would have to worry about as they focus all of their attention on getting Ava better.
If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me (Kerri Thompson at 210-764-1252 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Until we have a P.O. Box set up, you may send mail to:
The Lopez family

I will ensure everything is taken to the Lopez’ home.
As new needs pop up, we will continue to use the calendar for these requests. Thanks again for all of your love and support.
