I'm glad Rosemary you took what I said into consideration and posted this onto C2. I pray this will obtain some needed funds for you. Bless both of you.....

Please C2 community, for those who can use their PM's and do forwards please do this for another member who has been on C2 for a long time. Some members have broken PM's and can't forward so for those who can please do - or share on any other social network you may be on. I have shared on FB.

Darren thank you with all my heart, for Caring2share my husband Marvin's fundraiser on gofundme.
Marvin can't have knee replacement surgery because he has been told by his cardiologist that his heart will not withstand the surgery.
His last stent surgery last year in May he was told would be his last because he almost didn't pull through the 4 hour surgery.
So his knees are 'finished' and he can't walk with a walker because of the CHF (Congestive Heart Failure) that 'fast drives' his Afib causing difficulty in breathing.
So in terms of a mobility device, the scooter is the best option for him.

If anyone is able to offer even $5.00 every little bit helps. We know he has a long way to go, but hope is all he has now... it's all we have!
Thank you to everyone who so willingly wants to share Marvin's fundraiser page on gofundme.

And Darren, well my heart's overflowing with appreciation and tears of joy for your generosity of spirit!
May you always be Blessed my dear friend. (( Hugs ))

Thank you but surely he should loose weight. He would be far more active and would face his problem better,. Just thinking.

Responding to Margie's comment I would like everyone to know that Marvin's inactivity is due to the fact that his heart cannot withstand exercise and at best, is short of breath doing just about everything.
Sadly the obesity is due to the fluid that builds up and doesn't release through the body well.
The severity of Marvin's heart condition affects his circulation which is another reason why there is fluid build up.
My husband was always very active in sports and never had a weight issue.
If anyone has a right to be frustrated it most certainly would be him, and he is, every day.
He is also very depressed.
You know, it's always very special when you know that someone cares about you, and that is why my heart and Marvin's as well is profoundly touched with Darren's gesture, by posting Marvin's fundraiser.
Thank you Darren, always. Thank you my friends for caring and sharing, with your friends if you are unable to contribute.
My Light & love!

Current status is:
$100 of $5,000 goal
Raised by 2 people in 4 days

I have continued to share the link to this over facebook, twitter, Google+ and Tumblr, so it's likely a majority of those shares are from me!

If you could ALL at least share the GoFundMe link, over your own networks and friends on CARE2, there is the greater possibility that Marv will get more donations.

Also to answer Margie comment, people with thyroid issues, often have *uncontrollable* weight gain.

Sorry Darren in my haste to note this so it could be seen I thought Rosemary had posted it, I know I mentioned it to her. Would have done it myself but I can't forward anything anymore and I didn't want it to just sit and not be seen.

Prayers for all Rosemary, Marvin, and Darren for being such a team member on C2 and for humanity in general.

Hi Rosemary,
The shares are increasing but I've noticed no further donations have been given by anyone.

A friend of mine has reminded me of this little piece of information that might be preventing anyone here from making a donation.

When you set up / create the GoFundMe account, you HAVE TO SPECIFY HOW YOU WANT THE FUNDS RAISED TO BE PAID TO YOU, either by check, or deposit in a bank account, etc.

Can you make sure you have done this. . .?

I've been almost a month since I posted this update above, and I've noticed no further donations, other than my modest one (to basically check GoFundMe would accept a VISA DEBIT payment).

I'm wondering whether anyone here has attempted to make a donation, but then couldn't for any reason?

I think personally YouCaring, GoFundMe and any other online Charity funding page/website should be able to take ALL forms of payment (debit card, credit card, Pay Pal especially, AND transferwise, which is a free online payment mechanism).

If anyone HAS HAD issues making a donation, could you post here or PM Rosemary & Marvin, or myself, so we can try and fix the issues.

Sharing & noted, He should be able to have a spinal anesthetic, that is what they gave me when I had my knee replacement 13 years ago, I was unlucky and got a clot in my leg and strept had to have it flushed out, have had no problems since, was driving a car 1 mth after the operation. Thank you for caring and sharing Darren

i was able to access the site this time but i can't donate, they do not accept paypal & i don't have a credit card.

"GoFundMe only accepts donations via PayPal to Certified Charity campaigns..."
