Harley Barker Needs Immediate Help!

On Sunday, October 22nd, Harley Barker was shot twice and taken hostage for 3 hours while being denied much needed emergency medical care; bleeding profusely with bullet fragments in his body.
He has been in the hospital for a week and will be unable to work for an unknown amount of time (months at least) due to his current medical conditions that are rendering the left half of his body physically useless for the foreseeable future.

If you know Harley, you know that he has always gone above and beyond to help others. He has donated many hours of his time and abilities to helping with causes like:

-Founding the Gloucester tornado recovery group, working with local CERT and FEMA teams and county officials to coordinate ground operations, and working on said efforts for months to clean up debris, repair homes, and get citizens the help they needed.

- Playing acoustic shows at local medical facilities and club locations in support of the elderly, dementia patients, Alzheimer's, childhood cancer, leukemia, hurricane and disaster relief, and more.

He was also nominated by the daily press as Citizen of The Year in 2011 and was voted second runner up.

Now he needs your help. Please give whatever you can and please take the time to share this page with everyone you know that may be able to help in any way.
Any monies left over after his expenses are covered will be donated to organizations supporting victims of violent crimes and mental health organizations.
