As many of you reading this already know, I very narrowly survived a major stroke this past December, after a mysterious blood clot landed on my brainstem, severing connections between my body and the main control tower up top. After waking up initially paralyzed from the neck down, I have made many strides and overcome some pretty steep odds in my recovery, as at first they weren't even really sure how well I would ever be able to walk again.
While I was in the Emergency Dept during the stroke itself however, the conditions in which I fought hard and survived, were something straight out of a horror film. I now have a lawyer and a potential $250,000 case against the ED for Medical Malpractice, but in order to proceed, I will need to pay a medical expert a one-time-non-refundable fee of $3,000 (this is necessary, to advise my lawyer). Due to the statute of limitations expiring soon, my time is EXTREMELY limited.
Because of the deeply humbling, overwhelming response I received previously (and of course now we are in COVID), I just want to say that, creating this GoFundMe, and asking for your help to raise these funds is ... well, it doesn't come easy for me to say the very least...
**SO I'VE COME UP WITH AN IDEA**
With the holiday season around the corner, and all of us feeling a little like we all miss going out and dancing and spending time with friends, I thought this could be a great opportunity to offer my services as your personal LiveStream DJ in exchange for donations- Available in 2 tiers!
- $100, I will livestream a 1 Hour DJ Set of *any* genre of your choosing (seriously, ya like polka!? I'll do it!) while you clean the bathroom or do your best Tom Cruise sock-slides, or whatever it is you love to do at home (or on the road!) when no one is watching. I will also record this mix and provide an mp3 that you can keep!
- $300, I will livestream a *4-hour* DJ Set of everything from Oldies/Motown/Funk to Disco to New Wave to Hip Hop + Throwbacks, etc as a partymix for a social distance/'inner bubble' dance party, or even your private holiday party, etc. Once again, I will record and provide you with an mp3 which you can keep (an entire 4 hour megamix of hits, yours forever!)
I thank you greatly for reading this and I deeply appreciate your considerations during these tough times for us all.
