William St. John a drummer teacher

I was a man with a home, and a wife who believed in me. I lived in a house in Las Vegas that doubled as a music school. All was planned to be a nice journey, Then a dark stranger came and called himself Cancer. And took my dream away within two months of his arrival. I now live in a Van. The summers are horrible , the winters at night are freezing. I cook on a propane camping stove and learned the hard way, how sick you can get breathing in that gas. We had no children. I have no family. She was all I had. I am a very good drummer looking for a chance to show that I can teach and play. International drumming clinician and motivational speaker Dom Famularo saw me on a Youtube video that was 7 yrs old and was impressed. I told him that I give thanks to all the great drummers like Dom, Dave Weckl, Gavin Harrison, Steve Gadd and Vinnie Colaiuta just to mention a few. And that they were the reason why I practiced so hard to be a drummer.   So when Dom Famularo called me, well, I  broke down in tears. I had reached the end of my rope and Dom was like a beam of hope that came as from the darkness and pulled him back. Dom Famularo  put this campaign together to raise money for me to get a used RV. That way I'll have heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer and a proper stove. Thank you for contributing and helping me get a new start.
