Let’s keep Rick Balides in his home, while he awaits Social Security disability. He will owe his landlord $4500, as of July 1st.

Sedona resident Rick Balides is getting close to losing his home. Rick was a well known musician in Sedona, most notably with The Echoes. He’s been struggling with potentially fatal health issues for many years. Drugs he was given to help, have caused perepheral neuropathy, liver and kidney damage, and a host of other complications. His doctors now all agree he cannot and should not work, and feel he should be on full Social Security disability. He's waiting on an appeal with a lawyer, and all involved feel he will soon finally get his rightful compensation. Becoming homeless at this would be an absolute disaster. Besides the stress and health risks, he’d be unable to follow though on his disabilty case, or see his 16 year old daughter pictured with him above. His landlord has run out of patience! – thanks to all!
