2Mex Official Fundraiser
2Mex has been what we call "the hardest working man in underground hip-hop" over the past 20+ years. An extraoridnarily talented artist, his family of crews include Of Mexican Descent, Visionaries, Mindclouders, SonGodSuns, The Afterlife, The Shape Shifters, The Returners, Look Daggers, Grimm Image, along with countless friends throughout the industry. 2Mex has also been throwing concerts and has the 2Mex Hologram Podcast, and the 2Mex Hologram Radio Show on 93.5 KDAY.
If 2Mex has touched your life in any way, he would be more than appreciative of any contribution made toward helping him with the numerous medical bills and costs (hospital, rehablilitation, equipment).
Blessings to you all,
on behalf of the Visionaries, family, and friends of 2Mex.
We found out that Alex will remain in the hospital for at least 30 days, estimating hospital stay to be approximately $70k. Researching average amputation medical costs we found that it may be close to $120k for the next 3 years.
"According to the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association, a foot or leg amputation costs between $30,000 and $60,000 in initial hospital costs, plus between $43,000 and $60,000 in costs for follow-up care over the next three years."
A prosthetics specialist, who is also donating his time and talents for Alex, (very amazing), let us know that Alex will need a new prosthetic once every 3 years, with each prosthetic costing $7k - $40k depending on the technology and quality of the component.
Alex is in severe pain, but he his in good spirits and highly motivated to rehabilitate. All of the love and support is truly inspiring Alex, and your contributions are alleviating some of the stress of the reality of his financial situation.
We are raising the 3rd goal to $120k in hopes to cover his entire estimated medical costs for the next few years.
Thank you family and friends of 2mex for your tremendous showing of love for our brother.
Alex's medical bills are obviously going to be far greater than $15K, and so we are setting a new goal along with planning a benefit event in the near future, and of course, all proceeds will go to Alex.
Thank you so much everyone for contributing, sharing, and expressing your love for Alex, it is truly helping him.
I have no doubt in mind that he will be utilizing this period in his life wisely, and persevere. So, yeah...can't wait to hear some of the flamethrower lyrics he'll be getting down on during his rehabilitation period. I say this only because my spidey senses an extremely strong feeling that they will be some of the illest of his work to date. A new Visionary album? and/or maybe a solo album? It's only one thing...it's the love! Let my prayers be with you brother. Peace and blessings to all!
Thank you for everything you given us. Be well. We love you!
What is the latest? Sending healing love!
You are such an inspiration in so many ways Alex.... always keeping it real - always with clear vision / clear voice. I'm spreading the word but the world-wide support is already there. Stay strong my friend - anything more I can do I am just a phone call away.

Thank you for being a wonderful person that I have been blessed to know. I hope to see you soon so that we can grab some grits again. *Big Hug* Get some rest! Love ya.
I seen a hashtag that my cousin had postef on Facebook that said fuck diabetes I followed a link and brought me here. Reading through your situation I can completely understand and relate to what your going through. My husband is also diabetic and had his leg amputate from the knee down and not having any medical insurance we understand how expensive it could be for equipment and rehabilitation. After spending 4 long weeks in the hospital with many complicationd he was finally discharge yesterday. We have 3 beautiful kids that we continue fighting for. It was the most difficult and devastating news we have received, but we trust in God that he will help our family and get through this storm. I'm just reaching out to you to let you know that there's other going through the same situation Our prayers go out to you and your family. Keep strong in faith.
