Update on Markus 3/20/23
Markus has been home for 3 weeks and feeling better each day. He currently has a Wound Vac in his groin incision, where they pulled out a 9 inch blood clot. We are hoping he will only have to wear the Vac for another 2-3 weeks.
Markus is definitely a busy guy on a weekly basis. The nurse comes out 3x a week, cardiac rehab 3x week, heart biopsies, lab work and trying to juggle school in between. Markus has a homebound teacher that comes 2-3x a week, working hard with Markus so he can graduate on time and walk with his Class of 2023!
Markus has so much strength in all the challenges he is facing, he’s not only a survivor but a fighter. We continue to pray for Miracles and for God to keep Markus Strong throughout his journey!
Thank you everyone for continuing to reach out, pray, send love, food, donations and reminding Markus and our family that we are not alone!

UPDATE: 2/6/23
Markus’s Heart Transplant surgery on January 26, 2023 went really well. The first few days after surgery were a little rough but Markus was able to pull through and started sitting up and walking. Each day was getting better and better and they sent Markus home Saturday February 4, 2023. He was so happy to be home, out of the hospital and back to sleep in his own bed.
Unfortunately, throughout the night Markus started feeling severe pain in his chest, back and legs. We had to bring Markus right back to the hospital the next afternoon.
Markus currently has 3 blood clots, one in each lung and one in his right groin area. The blood clot in his groin is affecting the blood flow to his lower leg area and he will be undergoing emergency surgery within the hour. Please continue to pray for Markus and his journey to healing!
We are blessed and grateful to have our family, friends, churches, schools and our community come together for Markus. We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts!!! ❤️
*Markus is still in good spirits

Markus Martinez suffered a major heart attack Thursday, November 17, 2022. The doctors were able to remove some of the blood clot; however, they couldn’t remove all of it. Unfortunately, Markus now has permanent heart damage to his left Ventricle. His heart is only functioning at 12-15%, and the cardiologists from UCHealth are suggesting a potential heart transplant. It is unsure why this happened but the family is staying positive and doing their best to give Markus the best treatment.

The family is so loved, and many of you have asked what you can do to help; the funds will help Markus with medications, a possible heart transplant and any other unexpected medical expenses. The family is so grateful for all your help, prayers and support.
