Mom Overwhelmed After Husband Dies, Child Has Kidney Disorder

Michelle Garcia's husband Vinny passed away Dec. 1 after a sudden serious illness; the couple had appeared on Food Network Challenge.

Michelle and Vinny Garcia are known to many as contestants on Food Network Challenge and owners of the former Bleeding Heart Bakery in Chicago.

Unfortunately, Vinny was diagnosed with leukemia around the beginning of November, and passed away Dec. 1. As Michelle explains on her Go Fund Me page, it was the latest in a string of blows. Their 7-year-old had been diagnosed with two kidney disorders about a year ago, just after Michelle's father passed away and Michelle and Vinny lost their business, house and cars.

Michelle is asking for funds to help pay Vinny's and her child's medical expenses. To donate, click on her Go Fund Me page. Here is an article about Michelle and Vinny, and Vinny's passing, from chicago.eater.com.
