Greenway's Recovery Fund

What an awesome response. People really stepped up!!!

I'm pulling in NPR on you all. Meaning notice when they hit their goal for the hour they conveniently raise the goal:-)

Tried to get some actual numbers from Greenway on his expenses, but he's still pretty out of it. His recovery is expected to be 3 to 4 months. Wouldn't it be awesome if we had all his expenses covered for 4 months. He lives pretty cheaply. I know his rent is not terribly high. How about $2000 dollars a month for 4 months? I'm working with fellow good friend and Torpedo Factory Artists' Association  Director Abbey McClain on this as Greenway doesn't have great banking access. 
--------------------------------------------------------
Greenway, an amazing self-taught oil painter and one of my artist coworkers at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, VA had a stroke or related episode on August 18. He stubbornly went into the hospital on Monday, August 21 where he was being treated for a stroke and some related bleeding and compression in his head.

He underwent a battery of tests that kept his neuro team confused. As the pain, bleeding, and problems persisted, it was thought that perhaps he didn't exactly have a stroke but some major head trauma.

He took a turn for the worse and underwent emergency brain surgery.

He's on a long road to recovery, but he is recovering. There's still a lot that is unknown but he is a fighter and we're all optimistic.  He is recovering from a brain bleed and hoping the inflammation goes down.

As a self-employed artist, he has no insurance and no income when he is unable to work. We're raising money to help with his rent, bills, and recovery needs. Any amount helps.
