Marton family needs your help

Hi everyone,

We are posting this on behalf of our friend, Josh Marton, and his family, after they tragically lost their brother and son yesterday from a suspected heart attack in his sleep. 

Daniel suffered from various disorders after being born with an extra Y and X Chromosome, and was cared for by his mother Rochelle and father John for the full 24 years of his life. 

Daniel turned 24 on Sunday and didn't have any suspected illnesses, dying peacefully in his sleep that evening. 

John and Rochelle dedicated their lives to Daniel and have always struggled to get by, often relying on his funding to get through.

Whilst Josh, Nicole and other family members will be doing their best to contribute financially, Josh has asked us to start this fund to help with paying for the following things for his parents who aren't going to be able to cope with the financial strain of this disaster, and who deserve some things they've never been able to do or have whilst caring for Daniel. 

- Funeral costs
- Assistance with any other costs such as their mortgage
- A new dog
- A holiday (something they haven't had in over 24 years)

We thank you in advance for any contribution, and know this is the most important thing to Josh and Nicole: their parents well being. Any help would be more than appreciated as the family goes through this horrible time. 

Rest in piece Daniel - 19/06/1992 - 20/06/2016
