Our good friend, legendary bass player Victor Bailey, is currently fighting Charcott Marie Tooth disease, which is a severe form of Muscular Dystrophy. The disease has left Victor immobile and unable to function on his own, nonetheless play the bass. His family is asking for support in thoughts, prayers, and well wishes, but you can also help monetarily by donating to his medical fund through You Caring.
Head over to this site VICTOR BAILEY MEDICAL FUND to donate any amount that you can. This online fundraiser is set up to assist 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.
