Michael Jaillon Steel Wolf Lead Guitarist

Michael Jaillon resides in Queens, NY and is a husband and father who works as a musical therapist. He also plays guitar for the Lithuanian-American rock band, Steel Wolf. His life was turned inside out over the past year. In September, Michael was misdiagnosed with ulcerative colitis and sent home after a lengthy hospital stay.  Being misdiagnosed led him to contracting Clostridium Difficile (also known as C. Diff), a bacterium that can cause symptoms ranging from diarrhea to life-threatening inflammation of the colon. He was again hospitalized just before Christmas and then his life changed forever when he underwent emergency surgery to have his entire colon removed and use of a colostomy bag commenced. Due to being immobile for so long his blood vessels leaked fluid into his leg tissues and became edematous. He is currently in rehabilitation relearning to walk. His medical insurance does not cover all the costs for all the different supplies for the colostomy site and care (stoma belt, bags, paste, adhesive remover, barriers, deodorant for the bags, bag covers, etc.). This is going to be a financial burden for him as the doctor said no work for a while, so with this campaign we want to help him out until he is back on his feet and working again.
