Richard Brookens Support

As many of you know, our dear friend, Richard Bookens has recently suffered a fractured spine from a car accident. Those of you who follow him on social media and know him as a musician, a yoga instructor, and friend, are aware that he was only just getting his life back after a 2 year battle with cancer. His struggle through months of chemotherapy treatments took its toll, but he persevered and only just started to work again with his beloved instruments, creating the music he performs and finds joy sharing with so many of you.

Now, after the accident, he is once again incapacitated and unable to work and function independently. It is most likely his recovery will not be realized until the fall.

Richard’s need is immediate and one that many of us are hoping to step up and help him with. Please donate what you can and know Richard cannot be more thankful for the generous gifts from his loving family and friends in this, his hour of need.
