All monies raised will go directly to Kinkster for his medical and living expenses. Thanks for any little bit you can spare!

Our Brother Ken “Kinkster” Hobbs needs your help!! Ken has suffered several strokes over the past 4 months, the last one causing some major damage. He has partial use of his left leg but his left arm is completely paralyzed. His balance is shot and standing is precarious at best.

Ken has been through it.

He’s spent two months hospitalized in Knoxville while fighting to regain the use of his left side, hindered by his diabetes. He has no job, no money, no insurance and the stress of his situation is playing a big part in hampering his recovery. Ken has been our brother for almost 13 years and we know him to be a very proud and giving man. He hasn’t asked for help but we feel we MUST so that he will at least have an opportunity to rehab to the best of his ability.

At times like these prayers are appreciated but we must also try to put wings on our prayers. Ken’s house is not wheelchair accessible. A ramp needs to be installed to allow him to have access in the wheel chair he must use now. There are other things that need to be “upgraded” as well but they will have to be addressed one at a time. The first issue is to at least get the ramp built so that he can get into the house (Ken won’t be released from the hospital until the ramp is in place). There are many who love Ken and many that would want to help if they knew the true dire situation he’s in. That’s the reason we have come to this point.

Please, please, please, give what you can, no donation is too small. I know that Ken will appreciate it! He needs all the positive energy he can get as the negative has ruled his days for quite some time now. He is working hard to regain the use of his arm and leg but the prognosis is not good. The lack of insurance limits his options as well. Thank you in advance and God bless you for anything you can do.
