Many of you know or know of Martha Marin. She’s plays guitar and accordion for Trocodero. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because they do pretty much all the music for Red vs Blue (including the iconic theme song). She also happens to be one of the nicest and yet also bad-ass ladies I know. Even when I first met her in person, she immediately treated me like an old friend. And she really does play a mean accordion.
Over a month ago, her cousin Jesse Gericke was in a horrific accident on his bicycle. The damage to his body and face from the crash was bad enough, but he has also had to deal with some serious infections from the crash, including pneumonia. For the first four weeks, they weren’t sure if he was going to make it and while he’s in stable condition now, Jesse has a long way to go and will have to go through multiple surgeries in the next few years.
Martha is really close to her cousin and her friends are trying to help as much as possible. A fund has been set up to help ease his growing medical bills. While I realize this is a stranger to pretty much all of you, he’s also a person who needs all the help we can give. Any donation you can make would mean the world to Martha and her family.
