Mariano's wrist surgery

It's amazing how one little accident can change your entire life. I am Mariano Garcia IV a lot of people call me Buddy. I am musician here in south florida as well as a teacher, performer, director and mentor. Music is my life. Teaching is my life. And playing the piano is my livelihood. I tripped and fell and broke my wrist and my whole world got turned upside down. I had to be referred to a specialist who says I need two metal plates surgically inserted in order for me to heal properly. Who would have known that you can't play the piano with a broken wrist?My hands are all ive got. I'm trying to raise money to help with the cost of my surgery and just a bit to stay afloat. Anything will help. I have always donated my time and talents to help people in our community. Now im the one who needs help. Its hard to ask. But I'm hoping that I can get a helping hand.
