HEALTH UPDATE VIDEO FROM STEF:
As a musician, Stef has moved a lot of people. Rapping as P.O.S, he’s toured the country too many times to count, made friends in every city, and had a genuine impact on a lot of our lives.
In October of 2012, Stef made a public announcement about his health. His kidneys had been lousy for a long time, he explained. Ever since he was a kid, they had been deteriorating, though no one was sure exactly why. Recently, however, his condition worsened. His doctors told him that it was time for a transplant—and quickly. Stef had to cancel his fall tour and begin dialysis immediately.
The good news: Stef has found several strong candidates for kidney donation. The less-than-totally-good news: this stuff gets pretty damn expensive. Transplants create life-long prescription costs. And, as you’d imagine, rappers don’t have robust benefit packages. So, we’ve started this portal to allow people to donate to Stef’s recovery. The funds will be used to help pay medical bills, prescription costs, and to cover living expenses while Stef is off the road, getting better. Any money raised will go directly to him. Many of you reading this have already donated—thank you. It’s meant the world to Stef, his family, his crew, and the rest of us rooting for him.
