The Story

NOTE: GoFundMe has bought out and so we will be moving this campaign over to GoFundMe. Starting July 31, 2018, donations can be given at the following link:

On Tuesday, December 5, beloved friend and musician Ryan Koenig was seriously injured in an accident in Charleston, SC. He was struck by a vehicle on the sidewalk. Ryan has been hospitalized and is currently stable and recovering.

Ryan is a strong spirit with a lot of fight in him, but we all know the road to recovery can be long and expensive. This fund will go directly to Ryan & Kellie to aid in the recuperation process and chip away at the bills they will likely incur. 

Everyone who knows Ryan has come to love and appreciate his constant outpour of positivity, in addition to the endless stream of beautiful music that he creates. He has become a fixture in St. Louis and, through his travels as a member of Pokey LaFarge's band, has become revered worldwide. It is no secret that Ryan is a real treasure and a truly wonderful human being. 

Now, as members of Ryan's community, we have the chance to pitch in and return the love. Through his music and his presence, he has given us all so much. Let's make sure that when Ryan returns home to begin his recovery, he won't have to worry about piling medical bills. While we don't know yet exactly what those expenses will amount to, we know it won't be cheap.

Help us show Ryan how much we love him and help him along his journey! Let's get that boy back on his feet with a harmonica in his hands.

Ryan’s wife Kellie here.  I wanted to extend our deepest gratitude to everyone who has contributed to Ryan’s recovery, be it financially, emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually.  The incredible community that surrounds us makes going through something so difficult a little easier.  Ryan has been recovering at home here in St Louis for the past few weeks and is making great strides, though he still has quite a bit of healing to do.  Thanks to your contributions, we were able to make decisions about getting Ryan better care, and not just what we could scrape by on as we were uninsured at the time of the accident.  We have an incredible team of doctors, nurses, and therapists working to bring Ryan back to good health.  We’re both eager to get back out on the road, but only time will tell when that is possible. Love, Kellie and Ryan.

Wow everyone! In just 24 hours, Ryan's people stepped up and eclipsed the fundraising goal! Ryan has been making  headway on his road to recovery and Kellie is right there by his side. I'm glad we can all come together and share this love for Ryan & Kellie as their community, and I'm glad we all share the love of Ryan and his music!
