Delta Reign Donates Time and Talent to Benefit for Banjo Picker!

We heard from Delta Reign about a serious benefit happening  in Alabama for Kevin Decker.  The benefit is scheduled for February 18th in Foley, AL.

Image634636042055844819Kevin Decker, a known banjo player who has played with several groups around this area as well as created his own family band, "Southern Drawl" has been hospitalized since Nov. 2, 2011.

After 2 major surgeries he was left with only 3 foot of small intestines. He was making plans to go home to recovery when he developed a yeast infection in his blood, ran high fever and ended up in ICU. He spent 5 and a half weeks in ICU 3 of which he was connected to a ventilator and in a medical coma.

He woke up and was moved out of ICU on Jan. 25th. He is still in the hospital trying to recover from this long ordeal and to figure out how he will receive his nutrition with only a small amount of intestine and no colon for absorption. Friends and family have created this concert to help with the expenses that have been created. Come spend the afternoon with us for live bluegrass music, food, and other activities!

There will be lots of folks that would like to be here for the benefit concert but work, distance, etc. will prevent them from being here. A benefit account for Kevin has been established at United Bank, PO Box 1885, Foley, AL 36536 and donations can be made to Kevin or Amy Decker. You can reference the account by their name.  Knowing Kevin & Amy's dire situation, I know that they would be "very" appreciative of any amount sent to them.
