Friends, Following an extremely tough year of declining health, it recently became evident that Wolfgang’s condition was far more serious than anyone had realized. On Thursday, December 19th, Wolf arrived at St. David’s Hospital in Georgetown with what we now know is final-stage liver failure, among other health issues. While his diagnosis has been poor since his arrival, his condition has deteriorated rapidly, and his prognosis has shifted from doctors suggesting he may have 6-12 months remaining, to a matter of weeks, to now much, much less. Unfortunately the medical expenses, as well as many family and personal expenses associated with this deeply devastating time, surpass what he and his family are able to provide. While Wolf would never be comfortable asking for personal donations, any amount you or your family might like to contribute would be incredibly helpful to his family as bills continue to mount. Over the past 48 hours it has become evident that there are no longer any viable medical options remaining to help reverse his condition. He has been transferred to a ward which will manage his pain and keep him as comfortable as possible. Along with an amazing team of doctors and nurses, thankfully Wolf has had someone by his side throughout this process from the moment he arrived. We know that Wolf has so many, many beloved friends who would love to be there for him right now. Regrettably he is not currently able to communicate, so please keep him in your hearts, and we will do our very best to keep everyone updated as to his condition. Thank you so very much for your love and support.
