HOPE FOR HORACE

If you are more familiar with Horace "Tattooman" Wallace (aka Jr) than someone familiar with his amazing works, his award-winning tattoo skills, or know that crazy, unique laugh, you will be satisfied for yourself! Either way, Horace has illuminated many lives! In addition to working as a professional artist and tattooist for nearly 30 years, he also married his soul mate Bricille "Bri" Cozier in July last year and is a 3-year-old father. Using his talent, Horace often raises funds for different charters and organizes many fundraising activities to help friends and family financially. Horace and Bri have been together, actively giving back to the community by collecting or donating Kaua'i Food Bank, UN-Habitat, The Salvation Army and Toys for Tots. They are also involved in the preparation and delivery of food, clothing and blanket boxes for the homeless.

Now... they are serving you wholeheartedly!



On February 19 (Wednesday), Horace suffered multiple strokes in the left hemisphere of the brain. It greatly affected his speech and the right side of his body, including his legs, arms and hands. What is shocking is that since Horace is a right-handed person, this means that he cannot do any art or tattoos at the moment. This is not only a "hobby", but also his only source of income!

Fortunately, he has an 80% chance to train his brain through a variety of therapies, change his diet and habits, and with dedication and determination, he hopes to return to a normal life!

In addition to Horace's inability to provide financial services to her family, Horace almost completely relies on Bri's care, so she can't take the time to build her own business.

Medical expenses (emergency visits, hospitalization in the intensive care unit, intensive care unit and multiple treatments) have piled up. Unfortunately, no one’s daily needs will slow down. Between rent, gasoline, groceries, having two underage children and normal daily expenses, they need the help of people around them to help them through this crisis so that they can stand up and overcome this predicament.

They are proactive and apply for disability/social security to provide help, but this is a process and takes time.

Whether it's $1, $10 or $50, Horace and Bri can use the support immediately.
