Help save Thomas DePriest Eye


It saddens me to have to post that a great friend and amazing artist may loose the sight in his left eye without surgery. He has ruptured a vein behind his retina. The doctor has specifically said that without the surgery, it's not a matter of if you go blind but when. As Tom's friends and family we can't allow this to happen. The surgery alone is estimated to be $10,000.00 plus pre-op and post-op visits, medications and hopefully no complications. At this point we don't even know how long he will be off work. Unfortunately, Tom and Rachel have no choice but to pay out of pocket for this surgery. Tom has said that it's okay he will learn to live with one eye but that's not acceptable. Tom has always been the first to volunteer his time and money to help those in need. Now that he needs us, we need to do all that we can! Thank you to everyone for all your love and support.
