I have End Stage Renal Failure caused by multiple myeloma. I didn't have insurance. I took early retirement but it only pays the existing bills, not Nov/Dec of 2014. I am now on regular dialysis and chemo. I am unable to work. It was so sudden, I lost my guitar teaching business and all income. I'm still playing but trying to sell off some guitars (ok, just the cheap ones for now). I can deal with the bad kidneys and cancer. But the stress these bills are causing is not helping me get better. When I can pay my bills, I'll write and record a song to share. I'll start work on it as the first donations start. Late this spring, we'll have a big jam/get together to celebrate my soon-to-be remission and the success of my doctors!
