As many of you know, our friend Johnny Bowman (Master Yesugai Naran, called "Ucla" in the SCA) recently had a brainstem stroke and had to undergo a hospital stay and physical therapy and rehabilitation. Although Johnny has been released to home, now, and is making daily, hard-fought progress to regain full use of his left side, he is still unable to work at his automotive air shop. Furthermore, his out of pocket expenses for his 4 weeks of hospital and rehab were $1200 per week, for $4800. We estimate that Johnny has lost at least $600 per week of missed income, for a total of$2400, just so far. His hospital bills will soon come rolling in, so we hope to pass the electronic hat and raise funds to at least help relieve the stress of worrying about bills , so that he can focus solely on healing. We are hoping to raise $4800, plus $2400, for $7200 in 30 days. So, if Ucla has ever made you laugh, has fixed your car, has ever given you a ride to an event, fixed you a drink, been there to listen to you, or given you a great, big, Wookie hug, please consider helping him.
