The Facebook post garnered hundreds of reactions, with many promising to call, text or send Lee a card in the mail. Ailing Army veteran Lee Hernandez has one dying wish, and he literally wants you to be a part of it. They said there's nothing more they can do but try to make the 18-year Army veteran, who served in Iraq, comfortable.

Ever since Fawbush's Facebook post, Hernandez's phone has been ringing nonstop, Fawbush told the Arizona Republic.

Lee Hernandez, 47, has undergone three brain surgeries but his body is still deteriorating and he continues to suffer from frequent strokes, according to AZ Central.

"It broke my heart", Ernestine told AZCentral.

Ernestine looked to spread this sentiment to Caregivers of Wounded Warriors.

Ernestine discovered that the thing that brightens Lee's day the most is to hear from other people.

If you'd like to reach out to Hernandez, give a call or text to 210-632-6778. Please let Lee know that the veterans in Arizona are thinking of him! After just three days Lee was said to have received over 53,000 text messages and been inundated with calls from across the USA and even overseas. He soon was receiving an outpouring of prayers, phone calls and uplifting text messages that Ernestine read to him. Nevertheless, Ernestine said her husband is a "fighter" and has "beaten the odds and his strong will keeps him going".

Ernestine took matters into her own hands, contacting a support group to help drum up some phone calls. "I am trying to give him the best life I am able to with the help of my mom", she told the newspaper.

Anyone wanting to lift Lee's spirits is asked to call between the hours of 2 p.m.to 6 p.m. Ernestine said that is when Lee is alert despite heavy pain medication.

Hernandez's final wish is to receive phone calls from people all across the country, the Arizona Republic reported.
