Amy Boone Needs Our Help
$29,575 of $20,000 goal
My doctors warned me this would be a marathon recovery and they were right. After nine surgeries and two years later, I'm still dealing with chronic pain due to nerve damage and on and off swelling, but lately I’ve been using CBD oil and it is showing some promising results. 65% of my lower leg was crushed and I have a pretty formidable scar from the skin graft,( I call it my battle scar ) but that too has started to look better.
When I look at this list of donors it is incredible. I see the names of people I haven’t seen in so long, work buddies, mentors, bosses, fellow musicians, friends of friends, people who have come to shows and supported my bands through-out the years, even people I have never even met and from all over the world. If I hadn’t been hit by a car, I may never have realized that there are so many people who care for me. Your donations, your kind words have been essential to my physical and psychological healing. It still makes my head spin thinking about the crazy twist of fate that got handed to me but today, April 27th, looking out at a field of Texas wild flowers I feel hopeful and almost ready to join the human race again. All the best to you and yours!
I would like to thank each and every one of you on behalf of myself and my sister Amy for your compassion and generosity. We are amazed at how quickly friends and family responded and came to Amy’s aid, as well as those who support her music around the globe.
It is difficult to give a concise update on Amy’s condition. Since her skin grafting surgery, she has been up and down as she faces the daily challenges of this injury. Despite these difficulties, I would like you all to know that every dollar donated to Amy has been incredibly helpful and has alleviated an enormous amount of stress, and your messages have uplifted her and added so much to her recovery process.
I hope this good deed comes back to every one of you...sending out much love and gratitude!
Amy is home!!! She will be here for a few weeks to a month and then she will have her final surgery. We will keep you all updated on her progress. She's so happy to be here with her family. As always thank you all for your love and support!
Wonderful to hear from you. Wishing you all the best and look forward to your future.
This is great news. I was asking Willy about you when he came to the UK in February. Wishing you all the very best in your continued recovery.
Thanks very much for the update Amy. All the best from Perth, Western Australia! As I may have said before I never thought I'd like the idea of someone else singing Willy's lyrics. I'd been a massive RF fan and I just loved his delivery, still do, but hearing you with The Delines I was very quickly converted to a massive fan of both the tone of your voice and just how adept you were in terms of what you could convey. Hope to see you down here one day.
Amy- Love and miss you. I think of you often and would like to reconnect - maybe do some writing/pickin... ? ❤️ Geno
Any more updates regarding Amy's recovery?
Great to read this update. Keep strong Amy! Can't wait to hear the next Delines record, whenever that is. We'll be here waiting.
I think about how you are doing everytime I listen to the Delines (which is a lot). I send you love and prayers from the UK. Thanks for all the updates and thank you for the music!xx
Amy Boone! So sorry this is how I'm catching up with you! Lmk if / when you wanna drink some tequila and trade stories.
Loooooove you Amy! So sorry this has happened to you. Know that I'm sending healing energy and look forward to hanging out again soon! You'll get your dancing shoes back on, because you're a rock star! Big hug!!!
Thank you for the update, Tracy! I've been wondering. Still sending love and prayers. So glad Amy has her friends and family supporting her during this time. Let me know if anything is needed.
you are amazing.
just wanted to give a +1 to the comment made by Rhonda. MusiCares helped me out when I had a non-insured appendectomy many years ago. HAAM is a great resource as well. Wishing you a speedy and smooth recovery.
