Bucks for Buddy

Buddy Curilla has been a well known pianist and piano technician in the Washinton, DC area for well over 50  years. He recently underwent back surgery to alleviate the worsening pain he has lived with for the last decade. As he was recuperating, he had to be hospitalized again for blood poisoning originating in his legs. After that was arrested it was discovered that some of the hardware put in place during his back surgery had dislodged and another surgery has been scheduled. Buddy is still in a great deal of physical pain but there is also the worry about how to handle the mounting medical bills. We can't take away his pain but we can help with the financial worry. It would be an incredible boost to both Buddy and Cindy to be reminded how many people care.
