Merlex's Medical Fund
Like so many, my sister does not have medical insurance. There is no public facility in St. Vincent to help with the cost of her treatment. And so, the responsibility has fallen on my siblings and I to do what we can to help Merlex. However, over the past three years this extra financial responsibility has become more and more difficult for my siblings and I to manage on our own.
We are dedicated to taking care of our sister and others suffering with the same condition in St. Vincent. Our hope is that you will find it in your heart to help us in taking care of our sister as she continues her fight with diabetes and kidney disease. We vow that every cent you choose to graciously donate will be used to help Merlex and others in the same situation with their medical expenses.

This is my sister, Merlex.

Thank you all so much for being a part of this incredible campaign. I have never seen a community come together so quickly to contribute to a single cause. We raised $150,000 in 24 hours! This money will not only ensure that Merlex never has to worry about health care costs again, it also means we will be able to help countless others. Your generosity towards this cause has been truly remarkable and we look forward to sharing updates on all of the ways this fund is helping others.
All our best,
Jack and Marlan
Thank you so much for the overwhelming support for this campaign. Ever since Casey posted the video this morning we have seen a tremendous amount of support from so many people. We are going to increase the goal of this campaign so we can provide even greater support to Health Solutions SVG dialysis clinic in St. Vincent and help many many more people.
Thank you all again for contributing to this campaign, you all have highlighted how much good there is in the world.

Hey Marlan, I hope everything works out well for you and your sister. I myself have recently experienced something quite similar to this and with the support of others i was able to get through it. Thank you for making casey's vlogs bright and cheerful everytime your in one of them. :D
I can't donate money but I can watch ads. If you speak to cassey about ad revenue i'm sure thousands of people would be happy to watch ads so you can make money from them for the treatment. A good idea in my opinion would be either uploading a video that's nothing but ads or making a playlist so people can play it in the backround. If you speak to Cassey i'm sure he can figure out something with ads.
I just lost my grandma today, atleast there's something i could do to better someone's life, hope it helps Marlan! :) Absolutely beautiful how everyone has chimed in to lend Marlan a hand! Kind of teary eyed now, best of wishes bud, hope all the best for your sister, you & the ones suffering from this disease. :)
