Mateo Martinez "The Munchie Man"

$8,390 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 62 people in 44 months
My Papa, Mateo "Matt" Martinez also known as the "MUNCHIE MAN" suffered a severe brain injury in a terrible and tragic event.  He has had a large Subdural Hematoma (Large Brain Bleed) removed from his brain and is in ICU. He is in a coma and has not yet woken up, but is slowly responding to stimuli. A portion of the fund will be used for the fees of an Attorney that I am in the process of hiring on his behalf. This fund will also be used in the aid and support of my Three younger sisters and my Stepmother.

I would be forever grateful for any amount that could be donated to this fund to help. My dad has supported and been a part of this community for a long time and it is wonderful to see everyone come together to help such a wonderful, loving and giving man.

My father will get Justice and he will prevail. God has a mighty plan for him!

God Bless,
Rafaela "Rafa" Martinez

Please note any funds donated to this page will be utilized for funeral expenses and any other expenses needed at this time.

My Papa is now at home to be comfortable for his last days to go at Peace. This is all on his terms and he will let us know. There is nothing more that the Doctors can do and he will more than likely not improve at this point. They have said that miracles do happen and we must Hope for the best and prepare for the worst in this situation. He is surrounded by myself, his wife Maria, his other children Anabelle, Liztia and Olivia and other family members. I will keep the page updated as much as I can. Please know that the continual prayers and keeping us close to your heart is appreciated as we go through this extremely tough time. He will be greatly missed by many people that has touched his life as well those lives that he has touched. Just know how Grateful we are for all of you! With Love, Rafaela and Family
