Raising funds to bring music into the life of a disabled veteran.

In 2005 I returned from a tour overseas with my National Guard unit. I was hurt badly and life has not been the same since.

In many ways life is better, I have an understanding of the world now that I did not before, but all of those lessons came with a price.

I can't work anymore. I probably never will again, and I spend most of my time alone with very little to keep me occupied. I have a lovely garden, but I also have a chronic health condition that makes me very weak some days and so the garden can't be my constant haven.

As a disabled veteran my income is very low, I have my bills paid and I am very thankful for that, as it is more than most have right now.

I used to play the cello when I was young and have always wanted to take it up again...though I have forgotten everything I had learned so long ago.

This is not an emergency, and not a tragedy of epic proportions. I am hoping to raise just enough money to purchase my own instrument and take some classes, so that those days that I do not have the strength to leave my home or tend my garden (or it's raining) I will have something wonderful to keep me from feeling discouraged by my inability to do more.

Just music and a hobby that will keep me busy and happy, that's all I am asking.
