Edgar Flores was introduced to Silicon Valley on Monday…and by Tuesday morning, Silicon Valley was already doing what it does so well: Helping in a time of need.
“We watched the way the family stepped up, how worried Jose was about his little brother,” Rivera said. “We’ve watched these parents work with Edgar and help him cope with his injuries. He does really well with what he has.”
That’s when the people who saved Edgar’s life stepped in with some extra special caregiving. The nurses in the burn unit passed the hat and raised $720 in three days to help the family pay its rent. Local firefighters pitched in $2,000.
