First off let me say, I grew up in Jacksonville, still here, and basically cut my teeth on the band, Donnie said "you must have some sharp teeth when I told him that once". We all had mutual friends and have been around the band much back in the 70's. I have always loved you guys and I think you are doing some very wonderful things for people. I think God laid in on my heart to send this request to the best band that ever came out of Jacksonville, and my all time favorite. I know you all are very busy, I saw your schedule.
I am asking something for my nephew. He is the 16 yr. old that was shot in the head on Jan. 5, 2010 and was given 3 hours to live but he is still with us and tomorrow is (hopefully) his last surgery. I was wondering if you guys would be interested in a benefit for Alex, such as battle of the bands or something like that, maybe get other bands too - just a thought and we would be so grateful for anything you guys could do to help.
I am sorry to ask this but his therapy is very expensive and insurance doesn't pay it, it is $1,800.00 a week. Alex's Mom had just started a new job and was on her 6th day when this happened so she is not working right now, her sister who has been by their side day and night helping is leaving at the end of this month and Alex's Mom really needs nurses or aides there helping her out but can't afford it. It is for a wonderful cause for a wonderful young man whom I love very much. God bless your band regardless.
