Gerry Lee, our friend, our brother. Tour manager for Tom Cochrane has fallen ill and needs our help. On the morning of September 12th, Gerry had a massive stroke and was rushed to the hospital in Toronto where the doctors worked on him to the best of their ability but he suffered brain damage and lost the function of the right side of his body. As of today he’s slowly recovering in a rehabilitation center . He still doesn’t have function in his right arm and leg but can now slowly speak and has just been able to eat solid food. We’re hoping and praying for a full recovery but it’s going to be a long haul and Gerry needs our help. If you’ve ever met him then you know what a big heart he has. He hasn’t complained once and continues to be upbeat but I can only imagine the stress he feels as he may not be able to work for the next few years and as we know in the music community, that means zero financial income. Gerry would give you the shirt off his back, always make you feel like you’re welcome and I’m hoping we can do the same for him. It would be a Christmas miracle if we could raise funds for him and alleviate some of the stress that he must be feeling.
We're hoping to raise $60,000 which would help with medical care at home, food, rent for the next two years. He'll also need a wheel chair and customizations to the home he'll be staying at while he recovers. Gerry’s daughter, Jessica Lee will be handling the funds being donated and will make sure they go to good use.
Please consider donating and helping a good man get back on his feet. Literally.
