Help Ricky D. Boone continue to live independently by providing for a personal assistant for an hour every day.

Asheville magician Ricky D Boone has not had an easy life by any means. Yet he continues to bring smiles to those who meet him or watch him perform. He has that magic ability.

You may know that he has dazzled the public with his ability to entertain, won numerous awards, and was featured on the cover of the November 2011 issue of The Linking Ring, a professional publication of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. A book was even written about his inspiring life: The Four Foot Giant and The Vanishing Wheelchair.

Recently, his mother has had various operations and is currently in a rehab facility. Ricky depended on his mother to help him with several of the activities of daily living that the rest of us take for granted because we do them ourselves for ourselves. Ricky can't do everything for himself. He has used a wheelchair since birth. In order to live independently, he needs someone to come by for an hour or two daily. Without this help he would need to go into a group home where he would lose all independence. Nothing breaks a person's spirit more than losing control over their own life.

This fund will help Ricky to pay an assistant to come by and help him daily. This will enable him to stay out of a group home.

Ricky has always been there for others in need, now he is sincerely in need. Thank you in advance for your compassion.
