Taky Kimura is the type of man who has never turned his back on anyone in need, whether it be a shoulder to cry on, a job, advice, or a hot meal. A survivor of the Japanese internment camps he never allowed his experience to cause him to lose his faith in humanity. Taky has dedicated his life to helping those around him be the best they can be through martial arts. He has the distinction of being Bruce Lee's best friend and highest ranking student and has spent his life sharing Bruce's philosophy with the world. Ten years ago Taky was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and Eight years ago his son Andy and his daughter in law Monica made the decision that Monica would quit her job to stay home with Taky and provide his care. Unfortunately the last several years have been difficult one's for Taky, several cardiac surgeries and multiple hospital stays due to both diabetic complications as well as issues stemming from his Alzheimer’s' have resulted in astronomical debt. That coupled with the rising cost of continuing care has made it impossible for his family to keep up financially. Taky has always been a man of quiet dignity, a proud man who has never wanted to burden those around him with his personal issues, but now he needs help. It means a great deal to his entire family that they be able to grant this man who has given so much to so many, his only request of them, that he be able to remain at home. Any assistance you can provide in achieving this goal would be greatly appreciated.
