We met the Luna family in 2018. Damien was born with Short Bowel Syndrome and had 16 surgeries by age 2. Damien’s dad also had spinal fusion surgery around the same time as Damian’s 16th surgery. During this time, mother Gaby was the only one working while her husband recovered. She worked at Coppersmith in South Boston.
“CORE was truly a lifesaver in 2018 for our family. We had a very hard year with unexpected surgery for my son and his dad. We had no idea how we would make it thru. CORE helped us thru this difficult time. We were able to not stress about our rent and utilities which just that alone was AMAZING! We got gift cards as well and the cutest teddy bear that my son Damian still loves…This is an amazing organization and it was a blessing to be able to get the help we needed. They made the process SO smooth and easy. Thank you CORE!” ♥️
