Help Musician Heal Broken Hand

Hello! Bad news, I broke my hand in a recent bike accident. Each of the metacarpal bones, except for my thumb, were crushed against the brake lever. I underwent surgery Friday, September 7 and the doctors inserted three metal plates into my left hand. 

At this point the pain is manageable but I need more care and would like to be with my family. I work as a musician for a living and unfortunately will not be able to play or perform publicly for at least 3-6 months and cannot work doing any lifting or use my left arm. I was also in midst of housing battle and forced to leave my home in San Francisco by Sept. 15  so am overwhelmed. 

We are facing so much these days and it’s hard to ask for help, but I wanted to share what recently happened. If you would like to help it is greatly appreciated!! While I am healing in Minnesota with my fam, I would like to still paint and play music (no guitar but omnichord hits here I come).  Everyone who donates while I’m healing will receive a new song in your inbox. And at your request, I would be honored to paint one-of-a-kind high quality FutureTwin tees for anyone who contributes $100 or more. This will truly help me stay busy and earn while healing. It’s important for mental health too! If you would like a tee please email me at [email redacted] with subject line “Healing Tee,” your unisex shirt size and shipping address, US shipping included.

If PayPal or Venmo is easier my PayPal is [email redacted] and Venmo is @Jean-Jeanie 

I hope to make a full recovery within a year w physical therapy and be back to using my hand at least tenderly within 3-6 months. Wish me luck and thank you so much for reading. Here’s to mutual aid and resilience!

I love you!

Bon courage,
