Chris Doherty needs your help

$8,508 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 148 people in 7 months
On Halloween, Chris Doherty, leader of the Boston Hardcore band GANG GREEN had a major stroke that affected both his heart and brain and left him paralyzed on his left side.  He was rushed to the hospital where he had emergency brain surgery.  To add insult to injury his insurance was cancelled two weeks before this stroke.  Some may remember Chris had a life threatening bout with illness this same time last year.  As serious as last year's condition was, this stroke is far more debilitating and dangerous.  Chris is a legend in the hardcore and punk rock world and beyond.  His Band Gang Green has toured the world and influenced kids across the globe.  His songs have been covered by Metallica and Dropkick Murphys and bands from Scandinavia, to North Korea to Chile to Indonesia and beyond.  Benefit concerts are being arranged in Boston and Los Angeles.
    Chris needs your help and generosity. Please spread the word and show him the love and support to help him recover so he can get back to what he loves most Gang Green and his daughter Grace

Greetings One and All,
Many or most of you folks who have seen and/or
have donated to this campaign already know me, But there may people that who may not be familiar with who I am and to fulfill criteria necessary to the Gofundme campaign. My name is Dean Jackson, I have been a close friend to Chris for more than 35 years, and I have been a part of GangGreen for nearly as long. Chris and I have had many adventures crossing all state lines and many national borders. This campaign was organized with Chris' consent and all funds will be distributed to him by me with his full knowledge, consent and participation. Any questions you may have can be addressed directly to me by those who have my phone number or contact me through this site.
Thank you all for your support.

Chris wishes everyone a Merry Christmas. He is still in the hospital. He is getting physical therapy and working hard. He is very optimistic.
He would love to hear from more people. It can get pretty lonely in the hospital
