As some of you know, on March 11th, Roy Minarai's daughter, Aaliah, suffered a traumatic head injury, during a head on collision with a one-ton truck. She was rushed to the emergency room. The doctors immediately realized brain surgery was necessary and carried out the two hour procedure, in which both of the frontal lobes of her brain were operated on, heavily damaged. Fortunately, she is currently stable, anew after a medically induced coma, more surgeries, and a frankly miraculous rebound, she is home undergoing intensive outpatient treatment. While her recovery has been miraculous, Insurance only covers so much, and covers none of the extensive reconstructive surgery she will need in the coming year. Roy has been a true gift to the Bonsai community. Not only for his talent, but his spirit, and his kindness. IVe met just about everybody....and there isn't a more generous and loving person who plays with little trees or clay out there. I know the Bonsai community is equally generous, having helped manage these campaigns in the past, and hope you find something, anything, you can donate. all of the proceeds recieved here will go to Roy Geesey(aka Roy Minarai).
