My name is José Carlos. I was baptized on May 12, 1991, at Triangle Church of Christ in North Carolina, United States, while pursuing my master's degree at Duke University. That same year, upon completing my studies, I returned to my hometown in Mexico and joined the newly planted mission, the Church of Christ in Guadalajara, Jalisco. I even served as a church administrator for many years. During this time, my sister was baptized, and I met my wife, whom I later married. We have been married for 26 years, and God has blessed us with a son, Ian, who is now 23 years old and has been a disciple for five years.
In March 2021, I was diagnosed with a Stage 2 Metastatic Neuroendocrine Tumor, possibly originating in the stomach. Since then, I have undergone chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy treatments. I have been fortunate to have comprehensive medical insurance, as well as the unwavering emotional, spiritual, and physical support of my family and church, for which I am deeply grateful. I am convinced of God's compassion for my life, as I have remained stable throughout this ordeal.
I once again turn to God and to you, my brothers and sisters, to seek your support, this time also financially. After two years of medical expenses, my insurance has reached its limits and can no longer cover my ongoing medical needs. My current income is insufficient to cover my doctor's visits, medical tests, and medication. I am humbly reaching out to you, requesting your assistance in covering my medication expenses for the next few months. The cost of medication is substantial, and any contribution you can make would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your generosity. I will be forever grateful for your help.
