Rick BOCKNER HAS HEART

As everyone who knows him knows, Rick gives so much to the Cortes Community, to the Reiki Community, and to his family and friends near and far. We’ve probably all seen him on stage at Love Fest, a lip sync, benefits for island organizations, a square dance, a gig, and more often than not, making people laugh. Rick hasn’t been feeling full strength lately, and last week learned that he needs a triple bypass. He will have the surgery in Victoria in mid to late September. Rick and Carina have been given a wonderful house near the hospital to start his recovery in, but they live on a very limited income and he will be unable to work again until into the new year. They will need funds to cover the back and forth travelling, medicine, living expenses and so much more. Our goal is to take the financial stress off of Rick so that he can relax fully into healing. Please help our dear friends in anyway you can. CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO RICK’S GOFUNDME PAGE Thank you, Rick’s family and...
