Rhett's medical and living expenses
AS MANY OF YOU KNOW; MID-LATE LAST YEAR, RHETT WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ESSENTIAL TREMOR DISORDER; THEN 1/1/2016, HAD A STROKE THAT LEFT HIS RIGHT ARM AND HAND WITH PARASTHESIA (PINS AND NEEDLES FEELING); THEN IN FEBRUARY, WAS DIAGNOSED WITH SEVERE C-SPINE (NECK AND FIRST 6 VERTEBRAE) HERNIATION AND DISC DISEASE (PROBABLY ORIGINATING FROM A ROLL OVER CAR ACCIDENT HE HAD 5+ YEARS AGO)----IS LEFT WITH PRETTY SEVERE PAIN IN HIS NECK, LEFT SHOULDER, ARM AND HAND---NEEDLESS TO SAY, HE HAS BEEN UNABLE TO PLAY HIS GUITAR; HAS BEEN GOING TO PHYSICAL THERAPY; TAKING NO PAIN MEDS OTHER THAN ADVIL; HAS BEEN PRETTY ANXIOUS , DISCOURAGED AND DEPRESSED; HAS BEEN UNABLE TO DO ANY GIGS, AND WE HAVE HAD MEDICAL EXPENSES THAT HAVE NOT BEEN COVERED. ALSO, ONLY ONE SALARY COMING IN SO WE ARE STRUGGLING MIGHTILY WITH FINANCES, WHICH ONLY ADDS TO ALL OF THE STRESS. WE ARE ASKING FOR ANY DONATION(S)---LARGE OR SMALL TO TRY TO HELP US OUT AND TIDE US OVER UNTIL WE KNOW WHAT THE LONG TERM OUTCOME OF THIS WILL BE. ALSO, AS YOU KNOW, RHETT HAS GIVEN OF HIS TIME AS WELL AS $ IN THE PAST WHEN OTHERS HAVE NEEDED IT----WE ARE HOPING THAT FOLKS WILL WANT TO "PAY IT FORWARD" TO HELP US OUT IN THIS TIME OF NEED.
Sounds good you guys , hang in there.! We play Rhett's music all the time here. Will be in NY in June , would love to catch a show
So glad to hear Rhett is making good progress. Stay positive and stay strong!
thanking those who have contributed thusfar to our "cause"---you cannot imagine how much this means to Rhett and I---we are touched and so grateful for your help and kindness.
