About Chuck and Tim Medical Fund
Our good friend and sound engineer, Chuck Harris, has a hereditary disease passed down from his mother called Polycystic Kidney Disease. Towards the end of 2017, Chuck went on dialysis and joined a transplant list of some 93,000 other people hoping to receive a life-saving kidney. Tim Newton, who is a long-time friend of Chuck and also Don Moen’s drummer, tested as a 99% perfect match. Tim has decided to give one of his healthy kidneys to Chuck.
Chuck and Tim's surgeries happen September 27th. WIA will direct donations given in September and October to support these men and their families. Both have will have large hospital bills and lose work time afterwards. Tim, who is a carpenter when not drumming, will need to take at least a month off work to heal. Chuck's recovery process may take even longer. Thank you for support. May God bless your generosity.
