Help fund John’s surgeries and rehabilitation – Click here to donate now
DEAR LADY NHS IS A WONDERFUL INSTITUTION, BUT SHE IS CREAKING UNDER THE BURDEN OF OVERLOAD.
LIKE SO MANY OTHERS, JOHN IS WAITING FOR SURGERY.
HE HAS WAITED PATIENTLY FOR 6 MONTHS, SINCE COLLAPSING ON STAGE OCTOBER 28th 2016, AND HAS ONLY JUST BEEN PUT ON THE WAITING LIST FOR HEART SURGERY.
THE IRONY IS, WAITING TIME IS ANOTHER 6 TO 10 MONTHS FOR THE SURGERY! HE WILL HAVE WAITED 12 TO 16 MONTHS FOR THIS CORRECTIVE SURGERY.
OF COURSE, DURING THIS TIME HE HAS HAD TO CANCEL, AND TURN DOWN SHOWS, HIS LIFE BLOOD AND LIFE PASSION FOR ALMOST 50 YEARS!
IN EFFECT, HIS LIFE IS ON HOLD.
HE LIVES WITH THE THREAT OF CARDIAC ARREST, SUFFERS CONSTANT EXTREME EXHAUSTION, SHORTNESS OF BREATH, AND DIFFICULTY BREATHING, DEEP MUSCLE FATIGUE AND PAIN, NAUSEA, INSOMNIA, ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, DIZZINESS, VISION PROBLEMS, PAIN ROUND THE EYES AND CHEEKS, WEIGHT GAIN, RECORDED HEART RATES UP TO 240 BPM, AND MUCH MORE, ALL RESULTING FROM HIS CONDITION, AND THE SIDE EFFECTS OF THE MEDICATIONS WHICH CURRENTLY CONTROL HIS HEART FUNCTION.
JOHN IS ALSO CONCURRENTLY WAITING FOR SURGERY TO REMOVE A BENIGN TUMOUR FROM HIS RIGHT EAR CANAL, AND BECAUSE IT REQUIRES A GENERAL ANAESTHETIC, THIS HAS TO WAIT UNTIL THE HEART SURGERY HAS BEEN PERFORMED.
JOHN IS 70 YEARS OLD THIS YEAR, EVERY SECOND IS PRECIOUS TIME WHICH COULD BE SHARED WITH JOHN ON STAGE WHERE HE BELONGS, PLAYING FOR THE PEOPLE, SHARING HIS STORIES AND SONGS.
ALL MONIES RAISED BY THIS CAMPAIGN WILL BE USED TO FUND JOHN’S SURGERIES AND REHABILITATION IN PRIVATE HEALTHCARE FACILITIES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. HE IS TOTALLY POSITIVE IN SPIRITS, YET EVERY DAY HE SEES HIS LIFE SLIPPING THROUGH HIS FINGERS, UNABLE TO FUNCTION PROPERLY UNTIL THE SURGERIES AND REHABILITATION ARE DONE.
THE SURGERY WILL FIX THIS!
PLEASE NOTE, WITH YOUR BLESSING, ANY SURPLUS FUNDS WILL BE DONATED TO SIMILAR CAMPAIGNS.
WE ARE REACHING OUT URGENTLY TO YOUR HEARTS TO HELP US RELEASE THIS STRONG HEART AGAIN.
PEACE AND LOVE
