The money they make goes to help Maria’s 97-year-old mother and their 9-year-old granddaughter, who needs surgery.

“We’ll keep going for as long as she’s still sick. When she’s no longer sick that’s when we’ll think about stopping our business,” Cuitlahuac Hernandez says. “While she’s still like this, we pray to God we don’t get sick so we can continue to help her.”

In this video they share their story.
