Support Benny Mardones' Medical Costs

$13,091 of $75,000 goal

Created December 2, 2018
Benny Mardones and his amazing wife, Jane, are in great need of our help.

Benny was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2002. As the disease progressed, the tremors made the tasks of everyday life difficult. In July Benny underwent DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) which minimized the tremors, but unfortunately complications from the extensive surgeries created numerous other balance, stability, confusion, and pain issues. After surgery, Benny suffered multiple falls including one that dislocated his hip and shattered his pelvic bone. Continued dislocations and several surgeries later, Benny remains bedridden fighting infections, and awaiting yet another surgery for a complete hip replacement.

Rehab facilities lack the proper and timely attention that Benny deserves. It is recommend that a nurse or PSW be hired to ensure Benny’s safety and facilitate his recovery, and this care will need to be continued once Benny is home. Such care at over $300 daily is cost prohibitive and much will not be covered by insurance.

Although Jane is Benny’s angel and has worked tirelessly on his behalf, she is not strong enough to care for him alone – unfortunately, Benny is unable to walk or support his body weight. In addition to home care, Benny also requires wheelchairs, other medical devices, and home adaptation to accommodate his lengthy recovery and return some quality to his life.

We all love Benny and he means the world to us. He is a veteran of the US Navy and has given his love and time to innumerable charities including the "Make A Wish" foundation, Parkinson's fundraisers, inspiration for the disabled in Washington DC with the Secretary of Health and many many other local and personal needs of others. He played a pivotal role in raising over $30,000 for the West Genesee Athletic Club by hosting 2 Casino Nights.  

Benny has become a hero to many. 
Let's show this great talent our love for all he has contributed.  We are grateful for any consideration you may provide and please share this link with your friends and contacts including Facebook and Twitter.
