Help Cure Ned's Hands

$6,659 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 75 people in 23 days
On June 1st I am going in for a new therapy to hopefully cure my hands of a hereditary condition called Dupuytren Contracture. It is also called 'Trigger Finger' or 'Viking's Disease'. It consists of calcified nodules on the fascia layer of the hands, and if left untreated permanently constricts the affected fingers.  I am still  in the early stages of this disease and the cure rate is good if I act now before it progresses.

Some of you helped me get conventional needle treatment for this condition back in 2016, and that investment has kept me out on the road and in the studio working on new music and art, thank you all so much! It also kept the condition at bay long enough to qualify for the new treatment.

It is now time for me to take the next step, and hopefully permanently fix this condition with the therapy, and I'm hoping you will take that step with me.

Playing intense guitar music with the Dupuytren has become harder for me, it constricts the fingers on my playing hand and throws off my game mentally and physically.

I am raising funds to cover any gaps in coverage and also recover lost income, as of this point I have cancelled all of my public performances for the year to focus on curing this disease.

Thank you all so much,
Love,
Ned

Purchased a nylon string fretless guitar today, it will be gentler on my hands when I get back to practicing.
