Texas Army veteran's dying wish is to hear from you

It doesn't require much effort on our part but would make a world of difference to a man who served his country. Therefore, as his last wish, he wanted people - strangers - to give him a call or to send him a text.

Hernandez, who lives with his wife, Ernestine Hernandez, in New Braunfels, Texas, has had three brain surgeries, but still has continuous strokes that have affected his vision and cognitive abilities, according to the Arizona Central.

Lee has been battling health issues for five years, but hit "rock bottom" more than a year ago.

Doctors have been unable to pinpoint the cause of the 47-year-old's illness and say there is nothing more they can do but make him comfortable. She also says that while Hernandez may not be able to answer every call due to excruciating pain, that she "wouldn't have it any other way".

According to Hernandez's wife, Erestine, Hernandez recently asked her to hold his phone in case anyone called.

"It broke my heart", Ernestine told AZCentral.

Ernestine made a decision to reach out to Caregivers of Wounded Warriors - a support group for partners of injured servicemen and women - to ask others to contact Lee and wish him well.

Since the Facebook post, Hernandez has seen an uptick in calls and messages, his wife, Ernestine, told the Arizona Republic. The Facebook post has inspired many to reach out to Hernandez and let him know that they are thinking about him. Ernestine says "a lot of people call to pray with him". "It really lifts him up", she said. Ernestine describes his husband as a fighter that has "beaten the odds".

Below is his number, if you want to take 5 minutes out of your day tomorrow and call him I know it will brighten his day. She said that it's best to reach out between 2 and 6 p.m. Ernestine said that is when Lee is alert despite heavy pain medication.
