Jim Runge Stroke Recovery Financial Assistance

Medical Details:
Colleagues, Friends, Family  -  Jim Runge, just 3 weeks after his wedding, has suffered a substantial stroke, and is currently in the ICU in Green Bay.  While receiving excellent care and physical rehabilitation in the hospital, he has a long road ahead of him.  It is yet to be determined whether or when he will be transferred to a rehabilitation facility or if he will be able to undergo therapy at home with some household modifications.  The doctors are optimistic that he will make a full recovery, in time, with ongoing care to regain strength and his ability to walk.
The Bills:
Jim and his wife Stacy are strong and positive and they will get through this together, with the help of our community.  The Good news is that Medicaid and a local non-profit organization are helping with medical bills.   Unfortunately, they are in dire financial straits and struggling to pay everyday expenses, on top of substantial household debt accrued over the past several months due to CoVid-19 shutting down their sources of income.
How You Can Help:
Please consider donating whatever you can to help Jim get healthy and to support his family in this difficult time.  Jim is one of the most generous people I have ever had the pleasure to meet and work with over the past 8 years and those of you who have known him decades longer than that can attests.  If you have ever been the benefactor of a job opportunity, mentoring, concert or festival tickets, VIP access, backstage passes, free drinks and catering, or other perks of our now-defunct live music careers, NOW is the time to show your gratitude if you are able. 
Everything helps and we are eternally grateful for any potential support.  Please Share this link in email for friends who may not be on social media, on your Facebook Timeline to help expand our reach. THANK YOU!!!
