Emergency Open Heart Surgery

Our beloved friend and talented singer, Mac Morrison, underwent emergency open heart surgery on August 11, 2018.  He was originally scheduled for Angioplasty and Stents but the medical professionals realized his heart condition was far more grave.  The Medical Team immediately began the pre-op work for open heart surgery.  Following a successful 6 hour procedure, Mac spent several days in Cardiac I.C.U. and has now returned home to Ajijic.

Unfortunately, this unexpected surgery has wiped out his and Barb's savings and they find themselves in the frightening position of having to cover the costs of the surgery, hospital, medications, etc.  

We, the Arts community, are reaching out to our friends and Patrons of the Arts, who have enjoyed and been entertained by Mac and Barb throughout their lengthy careers and given so much to this and other communities.  

We need to raise $40,000 USD to cover the costs of Mac's surgery and rehabilitation.

We are  working to produce a CD with some of Mac's favorite songs with all proceeds going towards the "Miracle Mac" Fund.  In addition, talented performers are creating a Variety Show with music, dance, comedy and more and once again, all proceeds will go towards the "Miracle Mac" Fund.  

Time is of the essence as there are loans, Promissory Notes and they've maxed out credit and depleted savings to cover these costs.  We ask you to please make a donation to help cover these unexpected emergency fees and show Mac and Barb your support and love.  It isn't often we can make a difference in the lives of those who have given so much of themselves to our community but this time, we can.  

We thank you in anticipation of your kind generosity.
