Richie Blue's Hero Help campaign !

$4,650 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 40 people in 24 months
Within each one of us is a hidden power to act Heroically and save the life of another !

Today and throughout our campaign our goal is to bring awareness to the plight of those in need of living donor's such as Caroline Jackson, Team Caroline (liver recipient) and the Living Donor program but to our own local Hero Richie Blue (The Donor) and his selfless act in donating half of his liver.

These monies are needed as quickly as humanly possible, then throughout the next few months and will contribute to his daily need's, living expenses as well as any unforseen medical and life expenses while he recover's !

This how we support one another in the music industry and now you can help us help Team Caroline today !

Richie Blue is a Master gutarist and musician and makes his living in so many different genere's and styles of music.  He's a recent inductee into The Blues Hall of Fame and he's been inducted into The Bakersfield Country Music Hall of fame.

Our long time Central Valley Blues Society member and friend, Caroline Jackson, has been battling liver disease for some time.  We know that to be on the transplant list in California usually means certain death because the number of organs available just don't meet the need.

This is where our very own master musicians, singer, guitarist, lover of people Richie has responded to the urgent appeal for a living donor and stepped up to the plate.  With the help of his wife Marilyn, Richie Blue has successfully completed all the preliminary medical testing and is a close anatomical match, allowing for the transplant of part of his healthy liver to Caroline.

Today June 10, 2016 they are actually in surgery at U.C. San Francisco and that's why we believe in our friend's, Team Caroline and to help support them through these challenging day's and month's ahead. So today please we are asking and thanking all of you in advance for your contributions and support.
This truly means so much to all of us locally and around the globe in supporting Team Caroline financially but nationally raising much needed light to this cause of The Living Donor Program.

Don Heflin got to speak to Richie Blue & Marilyn Blue this morning. I felt his pain through his voice but he knew all along it wasn't going to be easy. It's kind of like jumping into the rapids knowing you're going to get the crap knocked out of you but you jump anyway. He still seemed more concerned for Carolines pain than his own. What we are doing on this side of situation is the easy part.
Thanks Don ! That sounds just like Richie
