Surgery for Manuel

So Manny is really an awesome person who thinks more about others than himself. He trains kids shaolin kungfu in all ages living in his community. He also takes time to train at risk youth at the gym, and he is a help hotline himself. Many others call on him when they’re feeling depressed or suicidal. His mark in this world is too grand to describe but all around he gives back to his community in any way he can, including the shirt off his back.  I’ve known him since we were in our early teens. He’s always loved to make others happy cause he knows how it feels to truly be alone.  he never asks anything in return, not for classes, or for giving advice, and definitely not for being your friend. A true hero that young kids need in this day of age.

He now needs help, he is always pushing himself to go teach, to work and to go to the gym to train others and keep up with the youth. He does not have insurance and needs a life changing surgery. He has a hernia that could burst at any second and if that happens he could very well die. There are a ton of kids,  young adults, and even adults that count on him day to day for his guidance or just to train with him. 

We’re asking if anyone can give a small amount to reach his goal. Anything not used will be given to a nonprofit of his choice. 

Please help us us save him, a true hero in our community.
