Avelino’s Story:

Avelino was invited to a staff Thanksgiving luncheon at AltaMed Medical and Dental Group – Anaheim, Lincoln. Two weeks ago Avelino’s youngest son who was expecting his first child was killed in a car accident.  His son had been providing financial care for Avelino and his wife. That same day of the burial Avelino’s wife was struck by a tow truck and ended up in the hospital with bleeding of the brain and several other injuries.  Needless to say this was a tragic and stressful time for the Gomez family.

“I am grateful to AltaMed for your assistance during this time and for giving me hope during this time of despair. Thank you and your team for being there in my time of need. I will never forget you. May God bless you.” – Avelino Gomez

During this time Moises, Clinic Administrator II, asked Avelino and his family to join them for lunch. The entire clinic team was present and was able to award Avelino’s family with AltaMed’s gift. During Avelino’s tough journey, Moises “was most impressed with his faith and his sense of gratitude for all who supported him.” Avelino “will be forever grateful to AltaMed for saving his life, especially for his two guardian angels- Dr. Bishara and Elsa Amezquita. Not a day goes by that I don’t ask God to bless them. Because of them, I was able to spend a little more time on this wonderful earth.”  With tears in his eyes, Avelino explained that he was grateful to AltaMed for their assistance during this time and for giving him hope during this time of despair.
