Surgery and Recovery Fund

$5,290 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 65 people in 16 months
Mark Anthony Torres while visiting in Pheonix AZ became violently ill and has been in the hospital for 10 days as of today.  During this time he has had numerous procedures and emergency colon surgery, ending up in ICU on life support,  where we almost lost him. Early on doctors thought it to be cancer, by the grace of God it is not.      
After a unsuccessfull surgery drs. have discovered additional major medical problems; now Mark faces another severe surgery.
His hospitalzation  here in Arizona has caused astronomical cost for medical and future medicine. 

At this time he is not able and will not be able to work for many months. As many of you know Mark is a local small business owner and youth avicator. Again, knowing Mark you know this is very difficult for him to reach out and ask for help.

Family and friends and Community, we are asking, if you are able or led, to contribute to Mark, any amount large or small. This will allow mark to fund partial payments of hospital and doctor bills, and survive! If not able to contribute financialy, we ask for prayers. Please Share Link. 

Thank you All So Much!

Hello everyone, well I'm home a day short of 2 weeks and everything is still overwhelming. Learning how to deal with this Colostomy bag, learning how to slow my roll and learning how to eat better have kept my hands full. I haven't been able to see most of you and thank you personally for your unbelievable generosity but I'm home every night and anyone is welcome to stop by. My next surgery to reverse bag is scheduled for mid July. From there I hope to make a full recovery and get back to helping our youth and what ever else God has planned for me. Thank each and every one of you and will never forget. Until next check in love you all. Ya hear me!!

Hello family and friends:
This picture should say it all...smile.
Mark is on the mend. He is healing and getting stronger each day. He is doing his best to getting back to everyday life and trying to work, in small doses...You know Mark!
Although, he is healing, he is not there yet. He still needs our help. If you would continue to pray this is appreciated and If you would like to donate, it is also deeply appreciated. Mark is so grateful for the love, prayers and donations he has already received on this account, as well as the private donations he has received. He is overwhelmed by the recent fundraiser given for him. Thank you all so much!!!

God saved Mark for His purpose and this is what Mark is most grateful for. To God be the Glory!

Again, thank you all for he love, prayers and donations

Hello family and friends. I've decided it is time for an update on Mark.
Mark is recovering nicely and is feeling positive and in great spirits! After all, he was given a new lease on life. He was shown how much he is loved by all of you and most importantly by God.
Mark has seen the new surgeon (which was a small miracle to get him in) and is looking at the second surgery sometime in July.
For those of you who know Mark know it is close to impossible to keep him down. He won't be able to work for months, but he is trying not to stress about it. God has taken care of everything so far, why would he stop now...He won't!
He is grateful for life and for all his family and friends have done to help him through this trial. Please keep him in prayer. Thank you
