Eric still needs our help!!!
The amount we chose above is just a number, because we don't really know how much will be enough, so anything you can do is wonderful and amazing, and appreciated.
Please help us help our friend!
Please know that the number - the goal we are trying to reach is just that - a number, and that's scary. We don't know what's in store. We don't know what's ahead, and that's scary too.
Whatever we reach, it will be because of all your love. Let that number above be just that. This site requires that we post a number.
What's most important is that we're doing all we can, and we know you are, so thank you so very much!!
I had a kidney transplant five years ago. It may ease your mind to know that kidney transplant recipients receive MediCare for three years post-transplant, meaning the surgery and all the meds and follow-ups are covered 100%! I'm not completely sure about dialysis because thankfully I have not had to have it, but I think it also is covered. I, too, am a drummer, and a school bus driver. I got behind in my medical bills last year so I applied for assistance with my main immunosuppressant and received it free for a year. I am in the process of reapplying, and have created my own non-medical-related Gofundme campaign (j345q4) to try and get to the day where I will not have to struggle to keep up with my medical bills. Eric is very blessed, indeed, to have friends and supporters like I see here. I pray he gets a transplant soon, and encourage everyone to sign up as a donor! God bless.
Eric... You most likely do not need a kidney transplant or dialysis. You NEED to contact Dr Joel Wallach who has helped more people with your condition. Anyone who is on dialysis or who has a kidney issue, PLEASE watch this clip all the way through. https://youtu.be/VJrUGB3lrp0 After you watch it and you want what Dr Wallach is talking about... Go to http://www.taking90everyday.com and get what he's talking about.
Eric, your music with Anders has brought joy to me and my wife countless times. We have so enjoyed dancing to your heavy beat! I so hope you get well, and was happy to contribute toward that. It's the least I can do for you given all that you've done for me. -Brian
If could hug and kiss all of you right now, I would. Like I've said before, this whole medical thing has been overwhelming to say the least but the over the top outpouring of love and support has been even more overwhelming. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you all..Eric
What is wrong with you Shawn ? Do you know this man ? Do you know anything ? Go away.
This how the great family of New Orleans Musians do it.
When Pete and I started putting this together... I don't think we had any idea as to how much would be enough. .. or how much this would just explode overnight... what an AMAZING show of love and support.... I am thankful just to be a part of all this incredible showing of compassion! !! It's amazing! Just WOW! :)
