Everybody's Uncle Marty

Hello my Name is Kyle O'Donnell. I'm 25 years old and trying to help raise funds for for a friend and fellow employee. Uncle Marty, better known as Martin Meehan is only 43 years and sadly, on Sept.2 , had a stroke. To make things worse, because of hidden damage in his neck, and several damaged disks- he also had to undergo surgery.  But throughout all of his struggles, he has managed to keep smiling.

Martin and I have worked at a Country club, for about 4 years now.  Just being around him, I've learned the value of staying positive.  He would give you the shirt off his back if he  thought you needed it.  That's why people love him.  The Members at our Country Club, light up when they see him because he's always in good spirits.


Sadly, after an evening off from work, when Martin was volunteering  to feed the handicap with his folks, he may have overdone himself.  He was rushed to the hospital.  After seeing several doctors, and having multiple  treatments,  finally, on Sept. 7th, he was forced to have Spinal Surgery.

Here is an X-ray of his neck

While recovering, Martin will be out of work for while.  Without any insurance it is is going to be hard to get back on his feet. That's where we come in!

Help me raise enough money to help him with his living expenses, until he is able to help himself.  My goal is to raise $5,000 in the next 3 weeks.  

Thanks for taking time to read and help out!  Keep smiling!
