Mitchell's Story - Health/Family

Mitchell Rivas Family Picture

My wife and I were caught off guard in 2015 when we welcomed our twin baby girls into this world eleven weeks early. We didn't know what we were going to do. One of the twins was critically ill and rushed to a separate hospital. Each day we would have to do a figure 8 to visit both our girls in different hospitals. We did this for five long months. A CFMitchell Rivas Success Story with Family EmergencyC-supported organization provided temporary lodging, so we had a safe place to stay and did not have to drive home. They saved our needed finances by shuttling us to the hospital, avoiding parking fees, and provided a delicious meal each day-ALL FOR FREE! We were grateful and are glad we can give back by supporting this charity through the Combined Federal Campaign.
