The Story

This is the Official Fundraising site for Victor Bailey, World Renown Bassist, Artist, Producer, who is dealing with Charcott Marie Tooth disease.  This online fundraiser is set up to assist Victor the exorbitant medical costs associated with this incurable disease.  

From Victor....  To everyone who has been wondering why you haven't seen or heard from me, it's time for me to let you know what's going on. Quite simply, I am just not in the best of health. I have been dealing with a form of muscular dystrophy called Charcot Marie Tooth disease for the last 25 years. You've all seen me using a cane as my legs are getting weaker. Now it is affecting my upper body. My arms and hands are very weak and at this point in time too weak to perform. I need help with all daily living activities, so for the past three months I have been living at an assisted living facility in Newton, Massachusetts. I have taken a leave of absence from teaching at Berklee College of music and from touring. Right now, I could use your prayers and positive vibes. I will be keeping you guys updated on my condition. It is possible that I can get stronger again, so please send me positive energy. I'll keep you posted.

From Victor:

I have not posted for a little while so just want to let everyone know what's going on. Sorry to say but my health situation is not better, in fact it's deteriorated. I have lost 30 pounds. I am 6 feet tall and weigh 115 pounds now. Along with that I've lost so much strength. I'm getting therapy but it hasn't made a difference yet. I'm still fighting but so far I'm pretty worn out. Just send me your good vibes.

From Victor..........

The saga continues. Still waiting on insurance to see what kind of treatment I can get. With every step I make I pretty much get three letters telling me the same thing before I can move onto the next step. I'm getting therapy once a week when I need it five days a week. Your donations are helping tremendously to keep me going. As always no matter what they tell me they're not going to pay for I still have to pay their bill as well as all the other bills, which never stop coming. Wish me luck.
