The Story

ANDY M STEWART is my brother. Mainly though, he will be known to many the world over as a singer/songwriter, a more public figure. In that professional role he has delighted and moved the hearts of many, has brought tears of laughter and joy, as well as evoking tears of sadness in those who have had the experience of seeing him perform on stage or who love listening to his music. His indomitable wit and flair for the comedic have always added much humour and levity to his shows spanning back to his days with SILLY WIZARD in the early '80s. 
His beautiful voice and poigniant songwriting have brought comfort and meaning to the lives and hearts of those who love his work and it is to those people that I now appeal and ask of you to please 'pay it forward' and bring some joy and comfort to this amazing man who so sorely needs it at this time.  It's your turn to give! 

In the last four years Andy M's health has deteriorated to the extent that he has gradually lost his business and livelihood.  Through a series of medical misadventures, and in September 2012 a failed spinal surgery, he has lost all mobility and was paralysed from the chest down with many other medical complications. Last September he had emergency surgery which he was not expected to survive, but he's a fighter. If you are one of those people who know and care for him or love his music, I am appealing to you. The fact is that Andy needs your help.He is now still recovering in hospital where he will remain for quite some time to come. 

Having lost so much my brother is facing a situation where he will need to leave his home and move to wheelchair friendly accommodation. He will need daily nursing care to assist his living. He does not 'meet the criteria' for entitlement to a motorised wheelchair because he has the use of his arms, even though this kept him housebound for many months. Except for when someone visits to help get him out of the house that's  what he will go back to. 

There are many new and amazing treatments availabile now for spinal injuries that I'd love to be able to raise money to get for my brother,  but at the moment I would just be overjoyed for him if I could help raise the money to improve the quality of his life. So small steps -  please help raise the money for a motorised wheelchair. Listen to his beautiful voice in the link I have posted and experience once again the enjoyment it has brought to so many -  a voice that is all but lost now too due to the paralysis of his diaphragm. Please give back to someone who has spent his life creating beauty for others. 

I thank you all in anticipation of your kindness, care and generosity of spirit.

Dear friends and fans of Andy, I am very sad to announce that Andy was taken to hospital again some days ago having suffered a stroke. We have been informed today that he now has pneumonia. Medics attending him are concerned for his safe recovery. 

Much thanks and and love to all who support and care for my brother. Please send him your kind and healing thoughts at this most difficult time.
