Help Jorge overcome a heart attack

Jorge Mario is a great translator, the best guide, the perfect friend, and a loving son and brother.  He is a hard working guatemalan who has been serving missions as a translator since more than 20 years. He has become a good friend of most of the missioners visiting Guatemala because of his great charisma and amazing professionalism.

A few weeks ago, he suffered a heart attack which led him to the hospital for two weeks and forced him to rest.   He was admitted at a public hospital but, in Guatemala public hospitals have none of the supplies and medicine needed to take care of a patient in his situation. His  family and he had to spend lots of money during the hospitalization time, he is still in medical treatment, and he is waiting to know if he will have a surgery.
Adding to all, his resting time will not let him work for a few months.  

He has always helped when needed, now we are raising funds to help him in his need.  We still do not know if he will need surgery or not, if he does, the amount of money needed will increase. 

One of his best friends in USA will help us to receive the funds and trasfer them to Guatemala as soon as possible since he needs them right away.
