Marco Lira, singer and former frontman of the L.A. pop/rock band In Memory
, has suffered severe brain trauma due to an unfortunate accident on July 14. While currently under the care of some of the best doctors, Lira's earliest prognosis sees him in the hospital for weeks — possibly months — and he does not have health insurance. To help alleviate the mounting costs of his medical bills, his friends and family have launched a fundraising campaign through Indiegogo
, and are asking for even the smallest of donations to support their cause. In conjunction with the fundraiser, they're also asking friends, family, and fans to share their favorite memories of Marco via Tumblr
. So far, the campaign has raised over $4000 with all proceeds going directly to Marco and his family, yet there is still a long way to go until they reach their $20000 goal. To make donations and for more information, please head here
, and we ask that you keep the Lira family in your thoughts during this difficult time.
