James Schlender Medical Fund

James was born with a heart defect.  He underwent valve repair surgery in 2011 (he was 17 years old).  His valve now has developed a severe leak and he will need a valve replacement surgery in the very near future.  

James is one of the many who does not have health insurance so this operation, as well as all of the treatment needed before, and after, the surgery will be very costly.  James and his family will need all of the help that they can get and more.  Please donate as much or as little as you can; every bit will help!

James is the the fiddle player for the Songs From The Road Band, based out of Asheville, NC.
