GoFundMe Campaign started to assist Trixy Tang bassist Kevin Turner with unexpected medical expenses
Imagine not feeling well and going to get yourself checked out, and having to immediately undergo a quadruple bypass heart surgery. Trixy Tang bassist Kevin Turner experienced exactly that earlier this month and his bandmate and friend Klay Fennema has started a GoFundMe campaign to assist him while he recovers during the next three to four months. The goal is to raise $20,000 USD and so far, $1,520 USD has been raised.
The GoFundMe campaign indicates:
“Kevin Turner, a longtime Musician, Bandmate, Brother, Father, Husband and incredible Man endured news this month (December 2022) that no one of any age wants to hear. He had to undergo emergency quadruple bypass heart surgery immediately. After months of shoulder pain, headaches and other various symptoms, Kevin knew it was time to get checked out, but little did he know the extent of his medical issues.
Fortunately, Kevin went in when he did and was in the amazing care of top-tier surgeons at The Fred and Lena Meijer Heart Center. The surgery was thankfully successful, and Kevin is now resting at home for the next 3-4 months under strict Doctor’s orders.
As many of you may realize, surgery of this extent is extremely costly even despite medical insurance. Kevin, a full-time working landscaper, and musician is now forced to be off of work for the next several months or more, and Kevin is beginning to incur these hefty medical bills alongside everyday expenses.
Kevin and his Family are asking for any donations possible, and anything is greatly appreciated during this difficult and scary time.
Kevin cannot wait to get back to full health, and get back on stage performing with his bands, where he belongs!
Thank you all so very much,”
