Help Robert to keep the music going

At 1 :00 pm on Nov. 28th while teaching, Robert suffered a stroke. We know now that it was more likely a series of small strokes. The MRI has revealed 3 incidents to be exact. The first may even have been during our last Martuni's showcase on November 13th. Of course, Robert just kept teaching and playing right on through them. Robert LOVES teaching people to sing. He truly loves his students. His first thoughts as we finally convinced him to go the ER were of all of you. For him, his family and his students have always come first. The recommended course of treatment going forward is primarily for him to stop worrying!! We are also addressing the high blood pressure that has plagued him his entire life and working on healthier habits for him to handle the stress of running his own business. However, if Robert isn't actively teaching we are left without an income with which to support ourselves and our two beautiful kids.  We write this together now with heavy hearts as Robert's birthday is this Tuesday (12/5) and the holidays are approaching. We were already bracing ourselves for the financial difficulties that Christmas always brings. We are in urgent need of these funds to get us through the next few weeks while Robert recovers so we can keep the studio and our home in tact while he does so.  Your help will ensure lower blood pressure readings as I am monitoring his BP several times each day. Anything you can give is greatly appreciated and accepted with a humbled heart and even if you can't offer anything financially, your thoughts and prayers are welcomed. Thank you so much. 

I will post updates here throughout this week as we find out more.

In love,
Annaliese and Robert <3
