On Monday afternoon Makele's family experienced a life changing event. Makele's wife was the innocent victim of a heinous crime. An intruder violently assaulted Marta in front of their 3 year old daughter. She is currently in an ICU clinging to life.

We have set up this fund to collect donations that will offset medical expenses so that Makele can focus his energies on their two small children and supporting his wife, in what will be a very long recovery.

Makele will be given direct access to this account and will have complete control of withdrawals and fund distributions.
