Dean's blood pressure and sugar levels were excessively elevated. He was admitted as it was concerning and additional tests were warranted. The results of a stress test suggested that Dean may have had a heart attack in prior months without his knowledge.
In addition, further tests concluded that Dean is also a diabetic, which explained the unusual symptoms not related to a heart attack.
A heart catheter was administered to conclude that Dean had several artery blockages at 90% . On Monday, Nov 6th, 2017, Dean underwent quadruple bypass surgery.
As of today, Dean James has been released from the hospital and is home recovering. He is still under the physician's care and will continue to be closely monitored while on his way to recovery.
As a result of this unforeseen occurrence, Dean has canceled all upcoming performances until March 2018, and therefore has no immediate opportunity to earn wages for his cost of living.
Dean has inherited an overwhelming expense of medical expenditures which includes hospital costs, post care, physician follow-up visits, medicines, etc.
On behalf of Dean James, we are asking fans, family, friends and musical colleagues to help in the effort of assisting Dean James by donating a financial gift to help offset his medical bills. Any donation or amount that you're able to give, will be appreciated.
We appreciate any ideas or suggestions related to fundraising opportunities to assist Dean as he recovers. We know how much you enjoy his music and his desire to return back to the stage is huge! Let's all be a part of his comeback, so that he may be bigger, better and stronger; and return to playing the melodic sounds and soulful tunes on his Saxophone we've come to love and enjoy.
Prayers and Blessings to Dean James.
