I am Sarah Rosales a close family Friend to Jose"Junior"Martinez he lives with my brother in law. We live in Altamonte Springs Fl just North of Orlando. We are raising funds for Junior as he will be unable to work anytime soon due to his injuries. The money raised will directly go to Jose Junior Martinez. Please see Junior's story below and any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Jose "Junior" Martinez 24 moved to central Florida about 2 years ago. Pulse vastly became his "spot". On Saturday June 11 Junior left his house headed to Pulse after a long day work. He went out to meet up with some friends and enjoy Latin Night. About 2am that all changed. Junior suffered two gun shot wounds one to the abdomen and one to the buttocks. We are so thankful to another club goer that had enough courage to carry Junior out of the club. Junior would not have made it out of the club without his help. Junior has had surgery on abdomen and buttocks to remove both bullets from his bodies. He was in the ICU recovering by the time we were able to get any information and see him. We received the news about him about 5:30pm on June 12, 2016. By about 5:45 - 6pm we were able to see him and he was stable.Jose "Junior" Martinez 24 se mudo a centro Florida hacen 2 años. Pulse fue su "sitio". El Sabado 11 de Junio él salió de su casa después de trabajar se fue a Pulse. Disfruto la noche bailando con sus amigos. Como alas 2 de la mañana todo cambio. Junior sufrió de dos balazos en el cuerpo gracias a la ayuda de otra persona que lo saco de el club él no estuviera vivo ahora. Le hicieron cirugía para remover las balas del cuerpo. Él estuvo recuperando en el UCI antes que nos dieran información de el. El Domingo 12 de Junio a las 5:30pm final mente el doctor nos dio información de Junior. Como a las 5:45 - 6 pm final mente lo fuimos a ver y él estaba estable y recuperando de la cirugía.Any help would be really appreciated on his road to recovery.

Junior is making progress. Taking one day at a time.
A month has gone by and Junior is still recovering. His physical wounds are healing with great speed. He is walking more and more each day! In the house he is walking without crutches. He is getting out and visiting with friends that are also still healing. As every day passes Junior strives to do better than the day before. Still mentally healing and trying to get his life back in order he truly appreciates all the well wishes!

Hola a todos , muchisimas gracias por el apoyo para con mi amigo "Junior " . Siento muchísima tristeza que esto le haya pasado a Él , pues es un buen ser humano , ha sufrido muchas cosas en su niñez y no es justo que aún siga sufriendo Discriminación social , sobretodo por su misma comunidad , ya es tiempo de que comience a vivir cosas buenas , y yo sé que con su apoyo pronto saldrá de esto y se recuperará . gracias . Hello everyone, thanks for the support for my friend "Junior". It Is sad that this has happened to him, because he is a good human being, He has suffered a lot in his childhood and is not fair that he was still suffering social discrimination, especially by their own community, it is time for Him to start Enjoying a free environment , and I know that with your support he will soon recover. Thank you .
