Vampiro has been wrestling since 1984, now at the age of 52 injuries have caught up with him. Arguably the second most popular Lucha Libre star of the 90’s and 2000’s Vampiro has had quite the career. He was also one of the stars of WCW during its dying days, even feuding with Sting. Just because he was on top of the wrestling world before, doesn’t mean that the money is still rolling in.
Despite serious health concerns. Vampiro is still wrestling and is booked for a match in October. Sometimes wrestling can’t take a back seat when it’s the only way for people to provide for their family.
Vampiro recently started a GoFundMe to help pay for some medical costs for a badly needed therapy.
I am nervous and embarrassed to be asking for help.
I am just a guy, no different than anyone, nothing special.
Because of all my injuries , I am stuck and really, can’t continue to do what I do to make a living or be there for my daughter. I want to live, and I want to be a dad.
I also want to be better, so I can continue to wrestle , and continue to help the next generation , be a role model and inspire people to understand that mental health issues are not the end of life… it’s just the beginning.
I want to be the one who is the guy who said fuck you to the stigmas , limitations and poor excuses you get from the medical community and society , saying you can’t succeed in life and give the middle finger to all and anyone who looks down on anyone who needs help.
I can beat this but I need help. I have not had an income In a year so I am stuck. Once I am better I will give a portion of all my earnings to people who need help, support and financial aid . It’s so hard , but , I can beat this . I have the desire , I have the heart, but I am hurting bad . Critical pain from the injuries and well, this alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, and the chronic arthritis in my whole body, well to me it’s just bullshit and I can beat this.
I am asking for help so I can get stem cell replacement therapy in Columbia at the end of the year, once I have that, I will dedicate my life to helping others even more than I already do.
Stem Cell Replacement therapy I believe will save many many lives … right now I need it to save mine.
I am eternally grateful for you even considering to help me, You don’t know me and you don’t have to, but I need it so I am asking.
With or without help I am gonna continue a million miles an hour and do what I can to support others , inspire , and beat this.
Again , I’m just a guy and I have so much more to give, all I can do is fight, and fight I will.
If you decide to help me, I will hold you in my heart forever. Even if you don’t, I already hold all of you there anyways!
I can only try … and regardless.. music, pro wrestling , the guardian angels , and my daughter , and all of you …, that’s my world , and I have so much desire to get better and help others .
I won’t quit or slow down, can’t , it’s not in my dna.
I am a warrior , and , it is the hardest thing to admit all this and ask for help.
again, thank you, once I beat this , I will help the world hear our voice.
one love, PMA
