From the Carlos Familia

Muchas Gracias for visiting Miguel’s website!

After a routine colonoscopy in June 2022, Miguel was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer. Thankfully, with the help of dear friends, we were able to get Miguel into M.D. Anderson quickly. In fact, on his journey thus far, Miguel has had 21 of 28 radiation/chemo treatments. He has been a real trooper throughout his treatments, and praise God, has had minimal side effects.

In order to help with the costly bills now pouring in, our daughter, Mikayla, created a design that couldn’t be more perfect for her dad. Our sweet love has never met a taco he didn’t like, hence the taco truck. One of our favorite movies, Up!, inspired the balloons atop the truck. Miguel has spent his entire adult life being someone’s cheerleader. “Carlos Up!” is one of his favorite phrases when trying to encourage his family. We wanted it to be on his shirt because it’s our turn to cheer him on. 

The Bible verse, Isaiah 41:10 is for all of us; Miguel, our family, and you. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Our God is an AWESOME God! We want to give all of our praise to Him!  He has been, and will continue to be, a constant on Miguel’s journey.

We are most grateful for His presence and for all of your support and prayers. With the help of our friends at ASH APPAREL, we have put together this fundraiser. When you purchase any one of these items, you are supporting Miguel financially, and joyfully lifting his spirits. 

We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!

~ Miguel, Glenda, Mikayla & Mason
