The last couple years have been rough on all of us. Kurt is going through a particularly tough time. His fledgling school Empire Jiu-Jitsu was massively impacted by the Covid restrictions and barely stayed afloat. But the bills have stacked up. To make things worse, Kurt has had a really rough series of health issues in the last several months that have been very difficult to overcome. It started with a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes. This was discovered after Kurt, alone at home, had slipped into diabetic shock. For a week he was alone and in and out of consciousness, surviving by drinking from a faucet and eating small amounts of food he could crawl towards. Once he was finally able to plug in his phone, he was able to call for help. He was lucky to have survived and it was a very scary situation. While in the hospital, he was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and also high blood pressure. After a couple weeks at home, he had to return to the hospital. This time, it was discovered that he had an abscess on his kidney. It needed to be surgically removed and he had to have a drain in his back as well as a catheter. He again was sent home and not long after had another emergency. The catheter had caused an infection and his body had become septic. He was rushed to the ER and eventually stabilized. As he was recovering, things unfortunately didn't get any easier. He returned home to find that while he was in the hospital, his house had been burglarized. Thousands of dollars of possessions were stolen including his prized antique sword collection he often talked about in interviews.
This has certainly been a really rough time period for Kurt. To make matters worse, he hasn't been medically cleared yet to return to teaching, which is his primary source of income. He is at risk of losing his home and has an overwhelming amount of bills piled up. He could really use your help!
Any contributions made will go towards his mortgage and medical bills for the next several months as he recovers and gets back to normal. Your donation means the world to him, and no contribution is too small!
