One of the wonderful things about the internet is that we can share information, and we can share it quickly. We can also help others. I have permission, via another friend, by Ron’s wife to share this information here (I always like to check before sharing information like this). I am certain every little bit will help. Please consider a donation, no matter how small.
Ron Sipes is an extraordinary musician and friend and for all of you out there who have had the pleasure to meet or know him, you know what a special man and artist he is! My friend Ron suffered a massive stroke last month, December, 2012* and is battling his way back from the brink! Ron was best man at my wedding and is not only a dear friend, but one of the most passionate musicians I know.
I’m appealing to all who have met or know Ron and even those of you who don’t, to help a fellow artist in need. Ron’s medical bills are and will continue to be astronomical and every dollar will help. No donation is too great, but more importantly, no donation is too small and every dollar will help this wonderful artist quite literally get back on his feet. I ask everyone to share this link with their fellow artists and implore the entire artistic community to help one of their colleagues in this direct and extremely effective way by donating even the equivalent of one cup of coffee. Every dollar will be appreciated equally and will help this wonderful man and artist in the most tangible way possible. Please, please take a moment to donate a small gift toward helping Ron!
I gratefully thank each and every one of you!
Please go here to help.
*In reading the link’s info the stroke was actually October 31, 2012, I believe.
