We are asking everyone to become "Heavy's Hero" and donate.

On August 19, 2012, Mario Vega a/k/a "HEAVY" went to the hospital complaining of trouble breathing. He was in the ER and went into respiratory arrest and flat-lined, but miraculously was brought back to life. However, minutes later, he went into cardiac arrest and was not as fortunate in coming back so quickly. He was down for 20 minutes with no oxygen going to the brain. Then, he came back to us.
Unfortunately, due to no oxygen to the brain, he has suffered severe brain damage. He has oxic brain injury/cerebral edema, cannot breath on his own, his kidneys to a hit and now is on life support. We are still keeping the faith that he will progress and show some sort of reflex or a sign to some sort of recovery.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every person for their prayers and words of encouragement. We are requesting donations from anyone and everyone to help us with expenses incurred and ongoing as a result of this medical trauma. No donation is too big or too small.
Anyone who knows HEAVY knows the countless number of times he has touched peoples lives with his help. Now, it is our turn to touch his.
Thank you.
