My brother in law, Mark Glasser, went to Morristown Memorial Hospital on Friday 3/10 to undergo same day surgery to repair a shoulder injury he sustained at work. During pre op, things went terribly wrong and he aspirated. He was moved to the ICU and put on a vent. While on the vent and having it working as hard as the machine can, his lungs started to fail. On Sunday night, Mark was airlifted to NY Presbyterian Hospital in NYC where he is on an echmo machine, in critical condition, and fighting for his life.

His wife, Amanda Glasser, has been by his side the entire time and continues to live out of a bag in the ICU waiting room since she lives 3 1/2 hrs away from the hospital.

Amanda and Mark are always the givers, always helping everyone else, and always putting others before themselves. It is time to give back to them in their hour of need and help them in any way we can. Everything is so expensive in the city and with Amanda out of work to see Mark through this ordeal and with 2 young children at home, she needs our help to ease her financial strain. She needs to focus all her energy on herself and Mark right now. They are such a young couple to be dealing with such a heavy burden.

This is going to be a long road to recovery for Mark and any help is greatly appreciated by the entire Glasser family. Our hearts and prayers go out to you Amanda. We love you both very much.

Thank you all for taking the time to read Mark's story. I hope it has moved you.

Its been four months since we lost Mark. The entire family continues to suffer and grieve this tremendous loss daily. Mark was such a huge part of our lives, everyone that knew him loved him immensely, and we are all the better for having known and loved him. I want to thank each and every one of you who has donated to this fund. Amanda and the kids have been living off this go fund me account for the past four months. She has no money coming in. Marks workman's comp case has been put on hold, no payments made to Amanda until it goes to court. His life insurance hasn't paid yet and the wrongful death case could take years. Amanda has had so many difficult things to deal with but financial stress was not one of them, thanks to all of you, until now. Her funds are dwindling and she is in desperate need of our help. She is fighting to save her home, the only home her children have ever known where they can still feel close to their daddy. To face all of life's challenges on your own takes an unbelievable amount of courage and strength. Amanda continues to fight everyday to overcome life's hurdles. She is an amazing person and deserves all of our respect and support. With all that she has been through, she still finds the time to help others and I am eternally grateful. Please continue to share Mark's story and any little you can give will help ease Amanda's financial burden. Thank you all so much. Continue to pray for this amazing family that I am so blessed to be a part of.

It has been about 2 weeks since we lost Mark. The pain we all feel is overwhelming. Please keep the entire Glasser family in your thoughts and prayers. Continue to share Mark's story and if you can, please donate to Amanda, Junior, and Ally. Every little bit helps. No one should have to be going through what she is right now and if we can ease her financial strain by even a little, it means so much. Thank you all for caring.

Yesterday we said our final goodbyes to a man that made the world a brighter place. We are all left with sorrow and an overwhelming sense of loss. Amanda is facing heavy financial burdens and needs all of our help. Any donation is greatly appreciated. Our sincerest thanks from the entire Glasser family for those who have shared Mark's story and continue to do so. We so very much appreciate it.

It is great sadness that I share with you that our Mark passed away yesterday. He touched so many lives in the short time he was here with us and the loss is tremendous. I thank each and every one of you who donated to mark's family and for all those who have prayed for him. Mark's fight for life has now become his memorial fund. Amanda, his loving wife and best friend, never left his side. She is the strongest woman I know. I am begging everyone to share this, tell Mark's story, pray for his wife and two young children and the rest of our very close family and to please donate if you can. The financial burden on them is unfathomable. Thank you all for generosity.
