12/13 UPDATE: Thank you everyone for your incredible display of kindness and generosity. With your help we have met and surpassed our goal. Our entire family is astounded and deeply moved by the outpouring of love that we have received from our friends and family - many whom we've never met. We will conclude our fundraiser on the 14th, however we ask that you continue to keep Maria and Melchora in your thoughts and prayers.

---------------------------------

Tragedy struck our family on the morning of Saturday, November 30th when a car accident claimed the life of Alvino Ortiz (43) and his 2 daughters, Talia (18) and Brittney (7). His third daughter, 14 year old Maria was gravely injured in the same accident and remains in a coma at the American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, WI. The deceased are survived by Maria Ortiz, Jocelyn Ortiz, and our aunt Melchora Ortiz.

One can only imagine the immense pain and heartache experienced by our aunt the morning when she learned of this terrible tragedy. Our family is doing all we can to comfort her during these difficult times, however the expenses associated with the funeral arrangements for three loved ones are substantial. 

We humbly ask for any small donation to help our aunt and cousin recover from this most devastating of tragedies. Even liking this page on Facebook would be greatly appreciated and help us immensely. Thank you for your kindness and we wish comfort and condolences to all those that have lost loved ones.

We will continue to post updates on the recovery of Maria as they become available.
