Marco “Merk” Hernandez Fund

Anyone who knows Marcos “Merk” Hernández knows how truly unique and one of a kind he is. Marcos can always make you laugh or bring out a smile or make you forget about your worries. We are asking that you help bring about a smile on his face and ease Marcos’s worries and let him know that we are with him and thinking about him.

Marcos was recently diagnosed with melanoma and underwent surgery to remove a tumor. Many details of his illness are currently not known as he is undergoing additional testing to determine his best course of treatment. We do know that it will be a long road to recovery. We have all been affected by cancer and know how terribly cruel and consuming it is to the cancer patients, their friends, family and all those around them.

Contributions will be taken to help fund any expenses not covered by Marcos's insurance as well as help Marcos during his recovery and time spent off of work to undergo treatments. Hopefully by your generosity Marcos can focus on treating his cancer and getting better.

Any contribution will help ease the anxiety
of having to make a living while fighting this terrible disease.

Thanks again for your generosity.
