Keith Baxter medical expenses
This has been a long process - getting through my injury from June 8th, 2015.
Because of all of you, I have received the best medical care available. Thanks to Dr. David Thordason at Cedar Sinai, the infection is gone and I'm on the road to recovery. I am doing therapy to try and get full movement in my foot, but have been able to get back to work at Baxter Charters and into water sports again. That is the best therapy of all!
This Christmas was incredible. I want to express my Warmest Aloha to Eddie Vedder and the Band for their generous gift. What can I say. I am overwhelmed with their concern and Aloha towards me.
Life is a circle I guess. I was in the right spot in the ocean on a very stormy day here in Hawaii. And now, 15 years later, the favor is repaid. Amazing this kind of stuff happens.
Beyond that day, I have never met Eddie or the band. My daughter had the pleasure of meeting that soulful group of guys. What big hearts they have. Perhaps one day, I'll be able to meet them and take them all out for a wonderful boat trip and share Hawaii with them.
Many thanks to Kacky Chamberlain, Michelle Willey, and my daughter Ashley Baxter for bringing the GoFundMe campaign to life. Warmest Aloha to Julie and Derrick Ho for finding the doctors and nursing me back to health in their home. All of these friends have put a lot of time and energy into getting me fixed up.
I can't thank all of you enough - friends, old and new, and people I've never met - for all of the support in making this happen. My boat is not big enough to get everyone on. I am a Very Lucky Man. What a trip.
Wish I could tell everyone personally how deeply I appreciate this outpouring of aloha.
What a gift.
Keep the music playing.
Time to pay it forward to a fellow Maui connection. On Friday, the brother of a dear friend (and founder of our daughter's school in Haiku), was murdered standing up for two Muslim women who were being harassed by a racist. Another was injured. Please support their families and show them your aloha.
(donating to (this) Keith's campaign will not send $ to the Tri-Met families
Aloha! Welcome back home! My dear friend Kacky has brought my attention I to what has been happening to you and as some who had a major health incident which has left me in a wheelchair. I know how hard it can be, so I am really happy for you. As someone who has been traveling from England to Hawaii for the past three years (each time for longer) its's the best place to be to recover and heal. Just not for the medical cost but I hope you feel you are getting past this very difficult time in your life. All the best and enjoy the love the island it has for you. Mahalo and aloha
Adoption of a fruit-based raw vegan diet would help provide Keith optimal healing conditions to get well. I volunteer to help Keith get started with this if he'd like. I've led this lifestyle for six years and have amassed 103 transformation stories of success of people triumphing over all kinds of health conditions on my website: http://www.Fruit-Powered.com. Much love and many blessings—and the happiest holiday season yet! :)
just saw this story on social media and felt compelled to give this family some info that may help heal keith's infection. there is an essential oil blend made exclusively by a company called young living and that blend is called thieves oil. i have used it for many years and can attest to its infection curing power! it can be bought online. just do a google search. very powerful stuff! very legit, honest company. all their oils are pure, therapeutic grade, natural and do not interact with any medications. hope this will be of help and will save keith's leg! :) merry christmas and best wishes for the new year to you all. ps: i am not a troll and will gain nothing from this. i just want to help and this is the only way i can, so here it is. :)
... and a huge mahalo to Kacky and Pearl J am!
Ok, Keith, the jig is up... off the lazy-boy and back to work! Best of luck to you and yours in the new year! Aloha!
Pearl Jam rocks!
Glad to see you're back at home finally Keith. I wish you a happy and swift recovery to full health. I miss you bud ! G
Ya buddy!! Welcome home and get back to work, you slacker!! Love & Aloha from the Canadian!!!
Keith I love you man, and you totally deserve all the love and affection that is embracing you now. Aloha, from a far close friend...
He has been my escort during several canoe races, including a ride back from Maui to Molokai for my one man. He is a great waterman and better person. I wish him a speedy recovery!
Ummmm...doesn't Eddie kind of owe him one?
