Hey Everybody,

I'm raising money to help my buddy Kiko. Kiko is a fighter, has been and always will be. A few months ago Kiko left the US with pennies in his pocket to train in Thailand in Muay Thai. Everything was going great until the balcony collapse.


Kiko was on a balcony when the rotted support wood below gave way and left him plunging 50ft to the street below. He now needs surgery on his arm or he could lose the function of it entirely. The time is ticking to save him and truth be told, I've never seen him be so desperate.


"I need help. I need prayers... - While Standing on balcony the floor collapsed from under me. Im at the hospital now. Broken arm. Broken foot and a fracture on my spine. Nobody is helping me. I'm so scared." - Kiko the night of the accident



Kiko was working before as a doorman at a bar and doesn't have much to his name. Most of us (his friends) are from around the same industry and simply couldn't raise the money amongst ourselves if we wanted to. So, unfortunately, we come hat in hand, hoping for the compassion of the anonymous on the internet.

Please help us save the arm of our great friend.

Hello again everyone! I am letting you all know that we will be having a benefit for Kiko with an all-u-can-drink wristband this Saturday (9/21) at Barn and Company from 3pm-6pm for $40. I know this is a little pricier than usual but the extra cost is going to be donated directly to Kiko's fund. We will also be taking donations for Kiko for those who do not wish to buy the wristband or who would just like to give more. Should be a great time. Let's do what we can to get Kiko back into fighting shape.

Hey Everybody! I am putting up my first update and so far we have made great progress. There has been over $1000 donated, but we are still going to need a lot more to get Kiko back into fighting shape. GoFundMe actually took down the picture I posted of Kiko with his injury because it was deemed "too gruesome." Since then I was contacted by Patrick Meraz who gave me a video to post. Its a great slideshow and should give any of you who do not know him a good idea of who Kiko is.
