Mike "Mictlan" Marquez

Hey guys, this is hard for me to write but I’m reaching out to my friends, family, and supporters for help during a tough time.  

(For GoFundMe purposes my fiancé LILLI WAKNITZ will be the Beneficiary for this Campaign. She is helping set up & run this GoFundMe Campaign & Donations.)

Last week I had to be rushed to the hospital. I had been feeling very sick for the past few days from what I thought was chronic stomach issues, but as things rapidly got worse we decided to head into the ER where I was diagnosed with DKA (Diabetic Ketoacidosis) due to several months of untreated, unknown diabetes. I was then quickly moved to ICU where I stayed for four days while attempts were made to normalize my potassium levels and blood pressure, as well as start my body on insulin. I was diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic and later sent home to begin adjusting to all the changes that are needed to manage this disease. With no insurance in place, we are currently waiting on medical assistance and are confident it will help with these mounting medical costs, but right now all of the extra daily expenses, doctor visits, and medicine far exceed what I can currently afford. Because of this I am asking for help to cover these immediate costs while I begin to take on this major change in my life. I greatly appreciate all the love, help, and support. Thank you.
