Make Martin Great Again (Cancer)

32033636_1533931669288074_r.jpegIt is a privilege to stand next to Martin during this difficult time in his life. He is brave, positive and in good spirits.

Martin’s health has quickly deteriorated in the past few weeks. At the young age of 22 he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. Life became very difficult, very quickly for Martin. He has been hospitalized almost a month now and has developed a series of complications due to his aggressive type of Lymphoma. We are reaching out to our friends, family and anyone who might have ever crossed paths with this kind soul for help in fighting this terrible disease. Chemo and the rest of his current medications are costly and because he is uninsured this will have to be covered out of pocket entirely by our family and friends.

I speak on behalf of everyone who has ever met Martin when I describe him as a very selfless young man, noble and happy. He is an honorable young man with great family values. His phrase of choice currently is “no pasa nada”, meaning “it’s all good”. Even when faced with the challenge of his life, HE finds a way to uplift US. He comforts us with his words and gratitude for his life. 

Thank you to all who have said a prayer for my brother. We are aware this is just the start of a long road ahead but we have faith and are hopeful he will get out of this whole, and with the opportunity of a healthy life.

Es un privilegio estar junto a Martin durante este momento difícil de su vida. Él es valiente, positivo y de buen ánimo.

La salud de Martin se ha deteriorado rápidamente en las últimas semanas. A la temprana edad de 22 años fue diagnosticado con Linfoma no Hodgkins en estapa 4. La vida se volvió muy difícil, muy rápidamente para Martin. Ha estado hospitalizado  casi un mes y ha desarrollado una serie de complicaciones debido a su tipo agresivo de linfoma. Nos estamos comunicando con nuestros amigos, familiares y cualquier persona que alguna vez se haya cruzado en su camino con esta alma amable para ayudar a combatir esta terrible enfermedad. La quimioterapia y el resto de sus medicamentos actuales son costosos y, debido a que no tiene seguro médico, nuestra familia y amigos deberán cubrirlos completamente.

Hablo en nombre de todos los que alguna vez conocieron a Martin cuando lo describo como un joven desinteresado, noble y feliz. Él es un joven honorable con grandes valores familiares. Su frase favorita actualmente es "no pasa nada". Aún cuando enfrenta el desafío de su vida, ÉL encuentra la manera de animarnos a NOSOTROS. Él nos consuela con sus palabras y gratitud por su vida.

Gracias a todos los que han dicho una oración por mi hermano. Somos conscientes de que este es solo el comienzo de un largo camino por delante, pero tenemos fe y esperamos que salga de esto y con la oportunidad de una vida saludable.
