For those of you who don’t personally know Bruce, let me take a second to shed some light on my good friend. Bruce was born and raised in Detroit. He is a Veteran and member of the 82nd Airborne Division. He has a great love for music and in another life, I truly believe he would be working within the industry, but in this life, Bruce is a barber… He is my barber. I have known him for about eight years now. As anyone who regularly gets their hair done by the same person, you know the relationship soon becomes much more than transactional. If you’re as lucky as I am, a great friendship can blossom. I think everyone that’s a reoccurring customer of Bruce’s feels the same way. It’s hard not to love the giant teddy bear that he is. He’s hilarious, extremely outgoing, sensitive, has a huge heart, and most importantly, he LOVES his family! Bruce has two grown children, as well as two younger kids with his beautiful wife Tanja. Noah is currently four and Nyla is three. His children mean everything to him. You can’t get a haircut without first looking through his most recent photos of the kids which he shoots every morning! No matter what day you’re sitting in that chair, there is going to be picture time.
I was in the barber shop yesterday while Bruce was on the phone pleading with doctors to work on his case ASAP. He said something that hit me hard. “I have two young kids and I got a lot of life to live for them.” Bruce is a fighter and although this battle is not going to be easy, he has got every reason to fight with everything he has - for his kids, his wife, his family, and friends who love him dearly.
The last couple of months Bruce has been in and out of the hospital trying to figure out why he has been feeling ill. He has already had to cut back on work hours because of fatigue. Once he starts treatment, work will most likely not be an option, and all financial responsibility will fall on Tanja. Raising two small children is hard enough, but when medical expenses are involved, the burden can be extreme. That is why I am asking family, friends, and anyone who is touched by the Quinn's situation, please contribute anything you can to help this family with the battle they are about to embark on. If money is not an option, sharing this page helps just as much!
Bruce and Tanja thank everyone in advance and we will be updating this page as we find out more information.
