It’s easy to feel powerless in situations like these, when the stakes are high–Tao’s health and well being. We were also getting worried about how to fund this surgery. I had middle ear surgery in September, and that minorly major surgery will take a year or more to pay off. Thank God I had some basic insurance and it covered some items, and the surgery, comparatively, was way less costly than Open Heart. Tao has catastrophic insurance, so he’s got a $12K deductible and $30K in coinsurance. That’s a big chunk for young entrepreneurs like us. I figure the only way through this is to do what I do best—create an art show fundraiser! We put the call out on Thursday for ART FOR THE OPEN HEART. So far, we’ve got 77 artist participating as I write this, and we anticipate more. It’s going to be an amazing exhibit. We are giving all the artists that Tao has supported over the years the opportunity for a great show and to support him as well. Friends and family are coming out of the woodwork to support our efforts, and I am thrilled!
