Michael Healy needs help!

Hi! My name's Michael Francis Lopuch, and I'm doing a fund raiser for my friend, drummer extraordinaire, wit, and spiritual soul Michael Healy.
      I remember the first time I saw Michael. We were youngsters playing at a battle of the bands, and Michael was with another group set up directly across from us. It was the first time I was awed by a musician. He was a phenom; it was perfect percussion. Later on when I was in a different band, one of its members came to me and asked if I would like Michael Healy to join our band. ABSOLUTELY! I played with Michael for some years and it was pure pleasure.
     Michael and his wife Eileen have had a hard time for awhile. They lived along the Schoharie Creek until Hurricane Sandy came along, rose about twenty feet, and washed their home and everything they owned away. They got out with the clothes on their backs and their car. Michael was ill at the time, and over the years his health issues have grown worse. Within the last year, he has had several mini strokes. They have not been able to stop them from occurring, and he has been moved to the St. Johnsville, NY Nursing Home and Rehab Center.
     Michael and his wife Eileen, have had a twenty year love affair. Eileen is on disability due to health issues, and has to live in Cobleskill to aid in the care of her ailing father who is in assisted living with dementia. The financial crunch has hit. Life can be hard, and sometimes when you're down, it seems to take pleasure in putting its hobbed nailed boot on your throat and stepping down hard. Their eviction decree was received three days ago. I'm stunned.
     Eileen can't even afford gas for her car to visit Michael who is saddened beyond belief. I had to stop writing at this point . . .
    For those of you who know smiling Michael, and enjoyed his music, his appreciation for the mysteries of life and universe, or don't know him but understand how bad things can happen to good people, please donate.  For those of us who have so much in so many ways, give your karma a breath of air and please, please contribute.
Dig deep, to help out Michael and Eileen, and I thank you beforehand.
Thanks,
Mike L.
