In November, Marco suffered a fall while training for the National Motocross Championship that left him a paraplegic. Marco needs our help to adapt to his new life and focus on rehabilitation

Marco is 24 years old, is a federated motocross athlete and personal trainer. Friend of his friends, Marco is passionate about the sport and very persistent in the fight for his goals and dreams.

On November 21, 2021, while training Motocross, he suffered a serious fall that left him very weak. This accident resulted in 21 fractures and one spinal cord injury. Marco underwent 2 delicate surgeries and was hospitalized for about 5 months at São José Hospital, Barreiro Hospital and Alcoitão Rehabilitation Center.

Marco is finally back home, with those who wish him well and with a lot of desire to recover.

And it is, in order to provide you with the best conditions that we need everyone's help. In order for the entire amount to be reverted entirely to this cause, it is necessary for supporters to mark it as "unconditional".

We decided to carry out this campaign with the aim of raising funds to improve Marco's quality of life, with the purchase of materials so that he can have a more comfortable and independent life. But also to help finance all the treatments that are needed. Whether they are physiotherapy, which Marco needs on a daily basis, medical appointments and expenses with medicines and other essential pharmacy products.

However, the possibility, if necessary, of going abroad for other treatments is not excluded.

About the author

Hello to everyone who reads us!

I, Inês, Marco's girlfriend, got together with some close friends and family to get the help Marco needs to face the enormous expenses that are related to his recovery and returning home.

We know that together we are stronger, and motivated by that certainty we thought that this would be a good idea so that everyone who likes Marco and is sensitive to the situation can help.

Let's help Marco recover!
