On November 30th, 2015, Junior’s 12-year-old brother Nano Castro died in a Mt. Hope house fire. Junior suffered over 95 percent burns on his body, his now 7-year-old sister was also burned. Junior has gone through eleven surgeries so far with more expected. This is his first year back at school full time since the fire.
Angel Faces has helped Junior connect with a plastic surgeon to help him with work on his nose and ears. However, his family says Medi-Cal considers this surgery cosmetic and won’t pay for it. Help support Junior by donating today!
