More Info

My future brother in-law Mark is currently laying in hospital urgently needing heart surgery to save his life.  The last update I was given was that Mark is now on an ACE incubator to keep him alive while I try to raise the much needed money I am so heartbroken.  No one is willing to help us in our time of need, to help an ex Marine who risked his own life for years to keep you safe from terror.

I am giving something for your help.

The surgeons and hospital are playing God with his life and had advised us they will only do the surgery if we pay the bill first.  Without this surgery he is going to die, the only thing they are doing for him is giving him pills but that is not fixing the problem of the arteries which are shutting down.  He is now unable to speak because his breathing is so laboured someone from the hospital is keeping his Terry updated via email which is not ideal, but is the only form of communication available even for me, since I am not in the same state as Mark.  

Is this how we treat our ex VA in this country after they have served to protected us, this is terrible.  

I only work part-time and sadly don't make enough to cover the whole cost.

My Fiance Terry is terrified that he is going to loose his brother Mark and never see him again for he is currently on deployment himself in Iraq serving his country also it is in there blood and cannot be by his Marks side to assist in anyway.

We are meant to be planning a wedding once Terry has finished his deployment and Mark is to be his best man, I want him to be at our wedding for it would not be a the happy event that it was meant to be.    Each second that the hospital delays the surgery, they are making Mark's recovery less and less likely to happen and instead of celebrating a marriage we will be mourning a death.

I have tried all other means of raising the funds myself from my bank and other lending institutions, I have been unsuccessful due to my current financial situation.
