Marc is in a lot of pain as the venom works its way through his lymph nodes, and there’s a strong possibility that he will lose at least a portion of his hand, which is particularly difficult since he is a law enforcement officer and the bite originated on his trigger finger.
Funds raised for my Brother and his family will help to cover pre-existing medical costs resulting from the bite, as well as assist with anti-venom, further treatment of the bite, and associated side-effects.
A shameless plug for my Brother and his family. No family has ever been more deserving of benefit of the doubt, but while they would NEVER say these things about themselves, or seek praise, here's snapshot of their lives of service:
1) Fostered more than 140 children.
2) Adopted four children, in addition to their four natural children.
3) Served four years in the jungles of Ecuador, serving at-risk and orphaned children.
4) Served for 15 years in law enforcement as a Police Sergeant, Patrolman, SWAT, K-9 Handler, Drug Recognition Expert, and soon, as Criminal Investigations Sergeant.
In short, they've made a difference with their lives, and it is my sincere prayer that we can make a difference in theirs. Thank you for your prayerful consideration, Friends!
