Fun guy and super audiobook producer Bob Deyan is no stranger to challenges - he and his wife Debra schedule, cast, record and edit audiobooks on tight schedules year-round. But in just the last few months, Bob's been faced with a new and life-changing challenge: he was diagnosed with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
The fight is immediate and large, but Bob's vowed to give voice to this disease and fight it tooth and nail. His out-of-pocket medical expenses are already considerable. To keep him safe and mobile, he has needed an electric wheelchair, a van with ramp, house ramps, wheelchair lifts, a 24-hour attendant . . . the Deyans have spent over $200,000 and there are more costs to come.
People who know Bob like and admire him. This fundraiser is our way of helping out and giving back. So if Bob's ever made you laugh, produced an audiobook you've listened to, or shared a drink (or two) with you, we ask you to make a pledge to help him and his wife Debra to defray these out-of-pocket medical costs. Remember, every gift counts!
On behalf of Bob and Debra, THANK YOU!
