Treatment for Brian

My father, Brian Messiah songwriter and guitarist suffered a life-altering accident.
Due to complications with a tooth infection, he became nauseous and lost his balance.
He fell down a flight of stairs, resulting in an injury to his spinal cord.
Following emergency surgery, he survived but currently does not have any movement below his shoulders.

Rehabilitation will be long and costly with no clear outcome regarding full or partial mobility.

My family and I are reaching out for financial support to assist with funding for better care and equipment that might give my Dad the possibility of once again picking up his guitar and playing the sweet melodies and moving songs I grew up listening to and his audiences loved.

Every penny helps and it would be a tremendous aid to us if you pass the word among your friends and family and through social media.
Thank you for your time and efforts.
