We still have a long road before Mateo can make a full recovery, and we’re calling on all the families in the San Antonia area to help us.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) May 26, 2015
Lochte Insurance Services has initiated a charity drive centered on the greater San Antonio Texas area to assist Mateo, a local firefighter diagnosed with multiple myeloma. Multiple myeloma is a terminal form of bone cancer, and the medical costs of the treatments necessary to fight back against the debilitating disease are mounting quickly.
Mateo has been battling this condition since 2013, and underwent a stem cell transplant, the total cost of which topped $300,000. In addition, Mateo will be required to undergo chemotherapy treatment for up to 3-10 years, and each year of this treatment costs over $100,000. Lochte Insurance Services is actively working to assist Mateo with gathering donations to help his family in paying for the treatments necessary to get him back on his feet.
“Mateo is a local hero, and it’s been inspiring to see the local community gather behind him to help pay for his medical treatments,” says Scott Lochte, the owner of Lochte Insurance Services. “We still have a long road before Mateo can make a full recovery, and we’re calling on all the families in the San Antonia area to help us.”
In addition to supporting Mateo on his journey toward recovery, Lochte Insurance Services has committed to promoting more worthwhile causes in the San Antonio area over the coming months. “We’ve been blessed to be part of this strong and caring community, and we’re going to continue doing our part to help those in need, no matter what,” says Mr. Lochte.
Following through with their commitment, Lochte Insurance Services has employed their own internal resources as well as their extensive network of business partners, associates, and clients to spread the word about Mateo. Lochte Insurance is contacting customers, friends, family and neighbors directly to ensure that donation goals are met, and have initiated a master charity program to identify future causes that can benefit from their efforts.
Those willing to assist Mateo in his recovery are encouraged to donate directly to his cause by visiting his page on the Lochte Insurance Services website, located here. For more information on the other initiatives Lochte Insurance is supporting, visit their Community Cause page.
