     Hi folks my name is Sonny Vincent. Some of you may know me from my music, tours and albums. . Most don't know my real name, it is Robert Ventura Jr. I need help. On Sunday January 2, 2016 our family was in a tragic accident. My son Rob, Sarah Ventura, and their son ( my grandson) Cayden Ventura (Age 9) were in a gas explosion that ignited into a blazing fire. Their injuries and the burns are extensive, The burns are 3rd degree and emcompas 50% of Robs body,50% of Caydens and the Mom suffers with 80%. They are  each currently in the Burn Intensive Care Unit at Winston Salem Medical Center, and are on life support struggling for their lives. The explosion/fire destroyed everything they owned.  There are several family members who are here supporting them. I despreartely need urgent assistance in taking care of them. 



Please help and share this.

Hi Friends- Its been a very long time since I did an update. It has been very hectic and draining recently.Cayden is still doing well, he has an appointment with his surgeon this month and we will learn what sort of surgeries are upcoming. Sarah is being discharged this week.At the moment she is still in the hospital. They had to amputate her legs above the knee and she is now operating a wheel chair. Like I said they will discharge her very soon. Rob is doing as well as can be hoped for, he still struggles with all this. In my next update I will share more about Robs struggles but because everything is so challenging I collapse after each day and there is no time to write, my head is spinning! I was in the process of preparing a new update complete with video of Cayden but between all this we got the flu and the schedule of Cayden's appointments for therapy, school and Boy Scouts has really worn me out! I am still going to work on the update but for now I'm in a panic. We don't have enough for our rent and bills. I want to reach out to my friends here to ask for help. Any donation will add to us making it through. I pray someday I will be able to tour and make albums again. To be self sufficient. Right now I am in for the long road and I really depend on you guys to help me again. Sorry if there are typos etc. I am writing this in a very charged stressed out moment. Please share and please don't forget us. Things are getting better. I am posting a photo of me feeding Cayden last year. Im sorry it looks so graphic, but it really shows how far he has come. Please help us pay these upcoming bills and help me continue to keep Cayden happy. He is such a sweet boy. Although he is facing a life of surgeries he is a very happy boy, kind to his friends, going to school and loving life. Thank you so much folks, thank you a million times and more. Without your care and Love we would have fallen -Sonny
Please share and donate what you can.
A video of Cayden is coming up soon!!

I am looking forward to making these holidays really nice for him and I want to send everyone heartfelt thanks for all the support over the past two years. Sending lots of Love and wishing you all joy over these upcoming holidays! Sonny

Hi friends- Here is another recent photo of Cayden and I on a hike. I try to keep him physically active and although he doesn't have full function or full range of motion he is doing better and better!
Below is the latest update info. Merry Christmas my friends!! Please share, thanks!

I am gearing up to give Cayden a great Christmas ! He will have surgeries coming up in the near future and now I have time to do my best to make him a very happy boy. Thank you so much for your support, please remember us, any donations will help.
Sarah is facing the surgeries I reported.
Since I've been her Health Care Guardian I have deleted all the mind drugs and drugs she was negatively reacting to from her daily meds list. She is now very sharp mentally. That's a blessing. She needs all her strength to face this next surgery.
She has asked me to no longer post photos of her body and I will be respecting that. Please remember her in your prayers. Rob my son ( her husband) will be helping her in the rehab hospital after the surgery and her Mom and Dad will be there for some days as well as her friend Sarah ( same name).
For now I am focused on Cayden, I signed him up for Boyscouts and I am still bringing him to his hand therapy appointments throughout the week. He is going to have surgeries during his entire childhood but he is doing better than ever and he is very happy. If you can please donate a small amount I'll buy him a gift on your behalf! Thanks and please share. This is a long road I'm on here, I can't tour or record anymore, all your help is so very much appreciated and needed. Have a great Christmas my friends! Someday I want to meet each one of you and thank you!- Sonny
Ok,ok, I'm wearing a backpack! I admit it! Caydens stuff is in there!!! Ha!!
