A message from the family of our esteemed friend Ernie Mrachek:

Dear Family, Facebook Friends, Colleagues and Associates,

We, the brother and sister of Ernest “Rob” Mrachek are establishing a “Fund Me” page on his behalf, as he has recently descended into the darkness of macular degeneration, first one eye, followed shortly by the other. Many of you will know of the horrors of this disease from experience with family members. Ernie's situation is complicated by the need for cataract surgery before he is able to start the injections with which wet macular degeneration is treated.

Ernie’s situation is this: he has lived and worked in Mexico for decades; his friends, life, and relationships are there. He is now faced with the challenge of an eleven hour bus journey with injections costing $300 apiece. The cataract surgery will be approximately $3000. Expenses he will need to cover will total about $7500 to complete all the treatments.

If you are among those who feel strongly that Christmas and the New Year is the time of giving, we humbly ask your support in an effort to help our brother regain his eyesight, in so far as the treatments will allow. Also, today January 6th is his birthday.

To avoid the fees, you can use PayPal (friends and family option) and email funds to Ernie.

If you would like to send a check directly message or email him for that information.

Blindness is the darkest of places. Please consider being a guide along his path. May the blessings of the Seasons be upon you. Thank you.
