Peace for Cubby

For the past several months, Christopher "Cubby" Cubbage has been struggling with health issues ranging from a fractured spine to a severe case of influenza to aggressive falling episodes, memory loss, and hallucinations.

He has been hospitalized several times, and is on twelve prescription medications. Not only is he struggling with his physical health, all of these medical problems are leading to mental health problems, too.  We all know Cubby as a happy, positive guy, but right now, he's feeling pretty low.

Friends, Cubby has been a ray of light in the life of so many, and now he needs a little of our sunshine on his face. He's fighting physical and mental health battles, all while shouldering the burden of the cost of medical care.  Can we raise a little money to carry some of his burden for him?

Cubby has moved (temporarily, we hope!) to Rochester, NY so that his daughter, Frannie, can care for him. If you have messages for Cubby or questions about his condition, I am happy to privately share Frannie's contact info.
