Not long after Blake joined the band, he was diagnosed with stage-5 kidney disease in 2014. Over the past several months, he has spent time in and out of the hospital. In fact, some of those hospital trips were not covered by his insurance. He currently takes dialysis treatments and is on the waiting list for a kidney. In less than a year, he has suffered from pancreatitis twice. He was most recently hospitalized for pancreatitis and a stomach ulcer.
Currently, Blake is at home recovering. The cost of living with the health challenges he has faced have been overwhelming. Further, he has two children and a wife at home whom he supports. If you can help this precious family in any way, I encourage you to please consider doing so. Most importantly, we plead you to help us pray that Blake has a speedy recovery! Thank you so much for your love and support!
