The fundraiser was on "hold" until we set up the funds to be withdrawn and Go Fund Me is very careful about releasing the money to ensure it goes to the person in need. So it was quite a process but Mike and I worked it out. Dozens of people emailed and messaged me about the site being down in the last couple of days when they tried to donate which is just another testament to how loved our Barry is! Thank you everyone for your patience while we got the issues fixed. Please keep the prayers (and the contributions and page shares!!!) for Barry coming! He feels every bit of the love❤

Barry will soon be starting the longest road to recovery from home and outside of constant doctor's care. He still needs all the support we can give him to ensure he regains his health. We have already raised over 13k, so let's give this page one more BIG push on social media and elsewhere to see if we can get him even closer to his goal of $25,000. The more financial stability he has, the easier he can rest while he heals. No one wants Barry back more than Barry. But this is going to take time. More time than anyone initially thought. So please continue to give and share this page if you can. You are all such AMAZING and kind people.
As most of you know, Mike Veal is Barry's best friend, musical partner, and brother from another mother. While Barry is getting back on his feet, Mike will be handling his finances. He will be withdrawing the funds from this account and delivering them directly to Barry. We want everyone who has so generously given to this cause to know that Barry is indeed receiving every dime and is more appreciative than you will ever know. Thank you all.
