Kevin received an incredible and generous offer from a relative that I need to share! This is Kev’s sister, Amy, with an update on medical fund I set up to help pay Kevin’s massive bills from undergoing two rounds of (successful!!) brain surgery. A family relative has offered to MATCH dollar-for-dollar ALL donations made between today and June 15, so for example, a $25 donation will be matched by another $25 from our relative; a $50 will be matched with another $50, etc. SO....if you are able to make even the smallest contribution, here is the link to chip in: http://www.gofundme.com/Kevin-Chown-Brain-Surgery
So far, close to $25K has been raised and we’re extremely grateful – thank you!!! We still have a long way to go though as the bills are stacking up but this special “double your gift challenge” can really help raise our total toward the $50K goal. Here’s the best news though….just one short month since surgery, Kevin is feeling great physically and life is returning to normal. He released his first solo EP, shot a new music video, played his first gig, resumed writing and even started running again. Incredible isn’t it?! He’s still on the road to recovery though both physically and financially. Anyone who has gone thru a serious medical condition knows that dealing with insurance companies and medical bill collectors is incredibly stressful. Please take this opportunity to have your donation matched by our relative with this special effort! Thank you again for your support in all ways to Kevin – emotionally, spiritually and financially. Please visit the link today to give what you can and share the word.

Meet the surgeon who changed my life. I would like to introduce you to Dr. Charles Liu, the USC neurosurgeon who performed two brain surgeries on me - first to implant 56 electrodes as an important step to identify where my seizures were coming from, and then to return a few weeks later to cut out the small piece of brain to stop me from ever having another seizure again. To say this man is brilliant is an understatement. He, along with my incredible neurologist, Dr. Christi Heck, are changing lives with their specialization in treating - and in cases like mine - (hopefully) curing epilepsy. Dr. Liu performs HUNDREDS of brain surgeries every year. Can you imagine, a typical day at the office is to perform brain surgery? His team tells me when he walks into surgery, he is is total command and everyone there knows they have to be at their very best. He loves his career because he can give people their lives back. That’s absolutely true. He has done that for me. With each day after my own surgery, I become more grateful to him and thank him from the bottom of my heart for his commitment to improving my health, my happiness and my future - a life without seizures. I also want to thank everyone who has been able to contribute to the fund my sister set up to help pay for Dr. Liu and the rest of my medical bills. Close to $24K has been raised so we are almost at the half-way mark to the goal of $50K. I am humbled by everyone’s generosity. www.gofundme.com/Kevin-Chown-brain-surgery

I really hope you get better. Epilepsy is hard to deal with. Hope you have an easy time with your surgery as well as your recovery, and I hope both shall be quick.
