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.
