Friends of Mario & Karla Help with Medical Bills

Our beloved Mario Ybarra, Jr. has been in the hospital since Dec. 8 with one night in the ICU. The doctors still don't have a full picture of what is needed for his recovery and aftercare. As anyone knows who has had loved ones in the hospital, it's expensive, even with the insurance Mario & Karla have.

Mario & Karla need help quickly to pay for their deductible and additional costs associated with surgery and aftercare. Mario is diabetic and has a leg infection, a mass that needs removal, and he has been in extreme pain, now being managed. Luckily he is COVID negative. This is an evolving situation. 

We will provide updates as possible and desired by Mario & Karla. This has been such a tough year for everyone—people are jobless, some have lost people they know or loved ones, everyone's been under stress and many, extreme duress. Thank you for taking time to read this, and please keep Mario & Karla in your prayers and thoughts.

This isn't going to be an easy road ahead, and anything you can give will be really appreciated!
