**JJ Johnson was John Mayer’s touring drummer from 2006 to 2009. He’s an awesome musician and needs a little help. Please re-blog and give this as much signal boost as you can. And drop a little coin his way. God knows we’ve all felt the hurt of medical bills.
JJ was on his way to a recording session and starting feeling dizzy. When he arrived at the studio, the producer was concerned and told him he didn’t look well and should probably see a doctor. JJ tried to carry on but it was clear that things were not right, so he left the session and went to a health clinic who took his heart rate which turned out to be 128BPM (!). They also noticed an irregular heartbeat, and immediately called an ambulance to take him directly to the emergency room. JJ spent two days in the hospital, and the doctors and nurses eventually got his heart rate down. For now, JJ is doing better although he does have to monitor the situation very closely.
Unfortunately, JJ is in the same boat as many hard-working people today who simply cannot afford decent health insurance. As a result, without insurance, the two-day bill for JJ came to a whopping $15K and that is a significant amount that he needs your help with.
JJ may qualify for some relief through an agency dedicated to helping the uninsured, but it won’t be nearly enough. All monies collected here will go directly to JJ to help offset the cost of his hospital stay and anything over and above what it cost JJ to pay his bills will be donated to that organization in order to help others in a similar situation.
It’s very easy to donate – simply click the yellow “Donate” button and your dollars go directly to JJ’s PayPal account. Absolute transparency here – you can come back and see how much we’ve raised and there’s no one taking a cent except for JJ.
