The friends of Aaron Neathery are banding together to help with his ongoing medical issues. Please show your concern.

If the artist can not make enough money to cover expenses, there is no art. This is the situation faced by Aaron Neathery with his webstrip ENDTOWN He has a chronic leg infection that has 3 times to date needed intense antibiotic intervention. These drugs and the administration (IV in hospital) are expensive. Due to the lack of affordable health care, the condition is just kept at bay, not properly treated and cured. While it is not immediately fatal, the possibility of an infection severe enough to cause loss of life, or more possibly, limb, hangs like the Sword of Damocles over his head. As with so many others, Aaron became unemployed as a result of the economic downturn of 2008. So, no insurance, savings now exhausted, and no personal resources to fall back on other than a few stout friends. While Aaron "appears" in good health, appearances can be deceiving. The leg continues to have a low level of bacteria present, as evidenced by continued swelling, redness and warmth. Without insurance, proper diagnosis and treatment are out of the question. Due to the existence of a "preexisting condition" insurance is prohibitively expensive. Aaron is hard at work on the next two Endtown Books as well as a new up to date web page for his artistic endeavors. All will be for naught however if the infection flares again, and he loses everything to medical bills. Your help can aid in the future of ENDTOWN
