Help Mark Overcome Paralysis

Last week my brother, Mark Benge required emergency surgery for an epidural abscess (infection in his spinal cord) caused by MRSA.   Mark thought he had a back injury, he was in excruciating pain for about 2 weeks but didn't seek care  because he is uninsured.  The infection compressed his spinal cord causing paralysis of his legs.  

Mark is still numb from chest to toes, has some movement of the right leg and the left leg still has a mind of its own.  He is going to need a lot of physical therapy and antibiotics for life.  

We are raising funds for suitable housing, rent, utility bills, prescriptions,  physical therapy and any mobility aids.   We humbly ask for any support you can offer.  

Thank you for helping my love bug baby brother.
