Book Synopsis

Discovering Josue is the heart-wrenching true story of an eighteen-year-old Mexican boy who was in severe pain and dying all alone of cancer.

He had been in the hospital for over six months without a visitor or family. It was back in the year 2000 during the presidential elections. Most of the immigrants coming over the border didn't mumble a word of English. When Gloria's next client strolled into her beauty salon, he was an oncologist who had informed her about his patient Josue. As tears streamed down his face, he conveyed that there was nothing more they could do for him. "We don't even know if he has any family. The only way we can converse with him is through the cleaning lady, Isabel. I know you can communicate in Spanish. Can you go visit him, Gloria?"

After my first step of involvement, American, as well as Latino, communities congregated as their heart went out for the boy. We were no longer a race divided, we were united with God. All the Hispanics want to do is have work and make a better life for their family. This intensely emotional endeavor altered my life forever!
