TROY, TX — A local Bell County family has just one NYE wish, to see their papa well again.

Secundino Garcia of Troy, TX, was diagnosed with lupus in 2014 and developed a hemorrhagic stroke in 2017. Recently, he got diagnosed with coronavirus and had to be taken by EMS for his seizures, later requiring him to start going on dialysis.

As of Dec 31. 2020, Secundino is waiting for a kidney transplant.

"I would love for our children to have their dad around for many more years to come." Samantha Garcia, his wife, wrote.

The Garcia family is hoping for the community's help with medical expenses.
