Float's Fund

$35,371 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 369 people in 2 months
Created August 2, 2018
While teaching and judging breakdancing competitions in Europe, Float had an accident that has damaged his brain. He has been in a coma in a Slovakian hospital with Ivette at his side, playing his favorite music for him. 

Float is in critical condition and most likely, he is near death.

Obviously, this is an extremely complicated and stressful time for Ivette.  While she has support from family to navigate the difficult choices ahead, financial support is urgently needed. 

This fund is to help with Float's mounting medical bills and complication of international travel.

With the help of a translator, the Slovakian doctors have finally been able to connect with Float’s Primary Care Provider at home and have found that his history of cancer may have played a role in the severity of his condition.

It has been a little over 2 weeks since Float’s passing, and I am trying my best to hold down all the pieces of our loss. Thank you all for your patience as you waited for this update. We were able to bring Float home from Slovakia, and his family said their goodbyes during an intimate ceremony last week.

It’s hard to put into words the whirlwind of the last few weeks, and even harder to adjust to this new life without my fiancé. Before leaving to Europe, Float and I had made plans to begin moving once we returned. After living together for 11 years, we decided to finally purchase our first home together in Boston.

Having to leave our old home full of memories has weighed the most heavy in my heart. Float and I were a team, and going at this transition alone has been one of the most difficult experiences of my life. But reading all of the messages, comments, and posts remind me that there is an entire community of family and friends near and far whose lives were changed by Float, and who want to show their support.

For now, we are aiming to raise the remaining funds by September 1st to cover the following costs and challenges of Float’s passing:

• Last Minute Travel & Accommodation Costs: When I got the call that Float was in the hospital I had to book a next day emergency flight. I had to pay for travel and accommodation in Slovakia for 14 days. I had to purchase an international phone plan to be able to communicate with family and friends and doctors. There was also the flight back home to the US, the costs associated with transporting Float’s body back home, and the back and forth travel to the hospital as well as to arrange and attend his burial service.
• Overseas Medical Costs: Costs for Float’s medical care in a Slovakian hospital quickly mounted due to his situation that left him in critical care for 14 days.
• Public Memorial: I am still in the process of planning a public memorial so we can all honor Float’s legacy together. The memorial would be open to all who have been touched by Float’s presence. In the coming days I hope to share the details for this soon.

This GoFundMe is more than halfway through its goal, and we hope to get 850 people to donate $20 by September 1st. To those who have already directly contributed or organized their own fundraising events, we are incredibly thankful for your love and generosity.

Please continue to share this GoFundMe and your memories with Float - through the chaos of it all, reading the ways Float touched so many lives around the world has brought me the most comfort.

With love and gratitude,
Ivette
