Rich Dieter Medical Defense Fund

Rich Dieter needs our help. You may know Rich as Founder & President of The Bridge Music Hall, or as “the music guy” from Wallace’s Whisky Room & Kitchen at the Hotel Indigo in East Liberty, or from his countless other roles in music promotion and community organizing - and even if you don’t know Rich at all, he’s the kind of guy who would still help you out in a pinch.

Rich is undergoing treatment for a number of medical conditions, including several malignant tumors (all of which are responding favorably to treatment), a post-op infection from recent surgery, and a loss of lower limb mobility during his hospitalizations. We are getting the right care team in place and arranging for appropriate equipment and therapy, but meanwhile we are battling for Medicare coverage, and unreimbursable expenses are accruing at an alarming rate.

Rich has always been there for every community of which he's been a part. Now it's time for us to help him. Please donate generously (and “Like” and “Share”) so that Rich doesn't have to worry about medical bills, and can instead focus on his recovery and on his beloved community activities.
