Tim Bluhm Medical Expense Relief

TIM BLUHM NEEDS OUR HELP!
I first met Tim over 22 years ago when I was hired to photograph his band The Mother Hips for a new record. We became friends and I have had the privilege to continue to work and hang with Tim over the years. His music has brought so much joy and pleasure to so many for so long. His music has been a catalyst for many wonderful life experiences.  Isn't that what a rich life is about, experiences that make us who we are.  Tim is an adventurer!  Hiking, skiing, teaching, performing and helping others every chance he can! Last September Tim was in a horrible speed flying accident. It was quite gruesome.  He snapped his left ankle completely in half while landing feet first at 35MPH into a pile of cut down trees.! He spun around and hit his right hip shattering that part of his body.  Life changed for him in an instant. Tim has insurance, but as we know, that doesnt begin to cover all his medical expenses.  After 5 surgeries, and with at least 2 more to go including what will most likely be a full ankle fusion, Tim is currently in debt with medical expenses close to $50,000 and this number contuinues to rise.  His pain has been excruciating, and multiple bone infections have kept him on heavy doses of antibiotics that are NOT covered by insurance.

At the moment Tim does not know I am starting this campaign. I believe it is important that we step up and provide some financial relief so Tim can heal without the worry of debt on his shoulders.  I know Tim will be deeply grateful for any and all donations. Let's all rally and help our friend get back on his feet and living his life to the fullest once again! And I know he is hanging up his speed gliding parachute for good...
