Michael Hamm's Medical Fund

My name is Terra Sheard, sister to Michael Hamm, who is a performing musician and guitar/bass instructor for children and adults in Lawrence, Kansas.

On November 4th, 2017, Michael suffered from a brain aneurysm and collapsed in his home. He was transported to St. Luke's hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, where he has undergone emergency surgery and a procedure to repair the damage caused. Michael will eventually have to undergo another surgery in the future.

Michael has been an instructor and active performing musician for over 20 years. He is also a coach for a summer music camp aimed at giving kids the unique experience of performing in a band and creating music with others.

Unfortunately, being self-employed, he is without insurance at this time. So, I am asking for donations to take the burden of medical expenses off of his shoulders while he is recovering.

Michael will be in ICU for two and a half to three weeks, so we are asking for immediate donations so we can begin to resolve these expenses.

Any amount will help and be greatly appreciated. God bless.
