Help for Mark Garcia - Life Warrior

Many of you may know Mark Garcia from work, tennis, Penn State, or Frankfurt American High School.  But what you may not know is that for several years my dear brother Mark Garcia has been fighting multiple ongoing health issues.  He was lucky enough to receive a liver transplant, however the medications weakened both his kidneys  which were ultimately removed.   He and his family adjusted to his dialysis schedule and through all of this he has continued to be a hard working man,  dedicated father, and loving husband.   

Because Mark falls into the high risk category he and his family made sure that they took every possible precaution to minimize the risk on contracting COVID.  However, he contracted the virus with minor symptoms and we hoped for the best.

It was during a normal day of dialysis that Mark began to run a fever and feel weak.  Within hours his condition went from bad to worse and the doctors made the decision to put him into a medically induced coma and place him on a ventilator. 

Mark has been on a ventilator for 3 weeks now and we are overjoyed that Mark is starting to show small improvements.    

Mark has been the main source of income for his family and his wife has been trying to determine which bills have to be paid first and which can wait.   Add to this that Mark will no longer be able to work so now comes the scramble to figure out how to pay the existing bills and the new medicals bills associated with this virus.  

I know that 2020 and this virus have touched so many people and created unbelieveable hardships, but I believe that with every negative event a blessing will be delivered... which is why I have created this Gofundme page.  

All of your donations will go to helping Mark and his family through this difficult time.  Please help in whatever way you can and we ask for your continued prayers.    

I would be so grateful if you would share this link to your Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter account to help Mark and his family.  Thank you.
