Help Marcus as he continues to fight for his life. The funds will be used for medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

On February 21, 2012 news headlines read, “Teen Struck By Trolley In La Mesa Area”, “Teen hit by trolley after tripping on track”, “Person Freed From Beneath Trolley”. Just two weeks after his 17th birthday, Marcus Smith was struck and drug by a La Mesa trolley. After hours in the OR, the surgeon who tended to Marcus’ injuries faced his family to inform them that Marcus had more swelling in his brain than he had ever seen. He did not believe Marcus would live through the night. Now 6 months later Marcus is still fighting an incredible fight for his life. After numerous surgeries and complications Marcus continues to wow the medical staff with his resilience and fight.
With a very long and uncertain battle to face, we are asking that you assist Marcus as he continues to fight to live. Donations collected will go towards medical expenses for Marcus and expenses acquired by his mother who has dropped everything to be by her son’s side everyday as he fights for his life.
The family and friends of Marcus greatly appreciate your help. God Bless.
