Jack Pedler's Recovery/Medical Fund

$13,200 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 143 people in 30 months
Hamilton’s own beloved son, drummer Jack Pedler was recently hospitalized for a week after taking ill with a painful condition called “diverticulitis”. He has had to cancel all his gigs for the next few months and is scheduled for two more operations between now and November when he hopes (fingers crossed) that he’ll be back playing again. Jack is a full-time musician who relies solely on his income from gigs to pay his bills.
So let’s show Jack the love we feel for him, let’s “pay it forward” so he doesn’t have to worry about rent, food, etc, and he can just concentrate on recovering and getting well!
He’s shown us so much love as a great friend, a dedicated full-time professional musician and top-drawer citizen of this city. Let’s give back to Jack! Let’s show him the LOVE!!!

Hey everybody an update on Jack - he's been having a pretty tough time. He's been in the Joseph Brant hospital since July 3rd, three operations, complications from those operations and pneumonia. Only today is he allowed up out of his bed to walk around, only today is he back on solid food. Damn. Nonetheless he's still the same old Jack with that indomitable spirit and wicked sense of humour. He wanted you to know how GRATEFUL he is for ALL YOUR SUPPORT, his actual words "I want people to know I'm not buying a Caddie with that money! Tell them I love them! And tell them THANK YOU!" We all know that Jack!
He'll be out of commission at least until the new year, and his medical team is talking about another operation...so he still needs our support!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for any and all contributions you've made or are about to make...rest assured you've done a real good thing and made a difference in someone's life!
Please share

Hey everybody!
Just wanted to let you know that Jack underwent his second operation last week. He is still in hospital successfully recovering from the 5 hour operation, and will probably be there till next week. He wanted me to make sure to tell you THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! He's eternally grateful for your support. He's still got a long road of convalescing and healing before he can get behind the drums to make his livelihood again but you know Jack, he's determined! However, he still needs our support! To those of you who have supported this campaign with donations, kind words & messages, and overall good vibes....every little bit helps! MANY, MANY THANKS!!!

Hey everybody!!! Just forwarding a message from Jack - I spoke with him yesterday. He is eternally grateful, and wants to THANK YOU SO MUCHl for all your support as it has kept a roof over his head, food on the table, and relatively worry-free (about money anyways) since he took sick. He's recovering quite nicely but now is booked for another operation of the exact nature May 11, which will keep him laid up & recovering for at least another 4 months. Any and all support you can offer is highly welcomed and greatly appreciated! Many many thanks!

Hey everybody! If you don't know...there's a benefit for Jack TONIGHT at the Bay City Music Hall starting at 7:30pm Here's the link for more info!

Jack might sit in for a tune or two, as his doctor has advised him to go extremely slowly....he has to make sure he doesn't overdo it in anyway and hurt himself. He reports he's still looking at 2 or 3 more operations till he can return to drumming full time, so maybe close to May 2017! Jack is extremely grateful for your support and sends his love & thanks to you all!
