The Story

Frankie Alverio, A.K.A. Blen 167 has been sent to ST Lukes MT Sanai Hospital for an emergency open heart surgery on December 25th, 2018. He is an award winning Tattoo artist and Graffiti Artist from Puerto Rico. Blen left Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit on September 19, 2017. The island has no electricity or water for him to continue his work. So he decided to work in New York so he can provide for his family in Puerto Rico.

Blen made the decision to go to New York after Hurricane Maria devestated the island, to work so he can support his 3 children. Unfortunately, after only 3 months in New York, his heart was failing him. Doctors found out that his main 2 arteries to the heart were clogged and he needed immediet open heart surgery. Now in recovery, the medical bills are pilling up and he needs help. 

With your generous donations, Blen can rest easy and focus on recovering.

The funds will be used to help pay his medical bills as well as help his 3 children and family in Puerto Rico.

The Alverio family is very humbled by all of the donations they received the past week by so many lovely human beings. Blen is still at the hospital in New York. After the surgery he had 2 strokes that have left half of his body paralyzed. He is recovering little by little. Our BNA brother Port flew out to go see him and keep him company during this difficult time. Please donate and share the link to his donation page. We are still far from our goal and will continue to do what we can to help the Alverio family.
