Patrick Weber, WallsNeedLove’s print specialist and featured artist known as Alpha-Tone, has suffered from a debilitating condition known as Charcot joints since he was ten years old. The condition left him with no cartilage in his right ankle and left toe joints. On top of that, Patrick suffers from neuropathy and is prone to bone and blood infections.
He was thirteen when his condition left the doctors with no choice but to amputate his right foot. After twenty years, seven more infections and over thirty surgeries, Patrick is once again in the hospital with a bone and blood infection. He underwent surgery last week and is now on 6-8 weeks of antibiotics and 3-4 weeks on a wound vac. The bills are piling up.
Throughout Patrick’s life he has found many ways to give back. Despite his ailments he has devoted countless hours to help those less fortunate than him. Patrick has been out of the country three times to help build children’s orphanages, hospitals and churches. He spent six years volunteering in inner city outreach programs, visiting the elderly in nursing homes, feeding and clothing the homeless. He also performed many motivational speeches at schools all across the country about combating the use of drugs, under-age drinking, and fighting suicide.
Unfortunately at this point in Patrick’s life he needs your help as he gets through this difficult time. Here at WallsNeedLove, we couldn’t imagine not helping one of our own. What better way than to showcase his awesome talent! We are donating 50% of all Alpha-Tone purchases to help Patrick out. In addition to this fundraiser, if you find it in your heart you can donate on his Go Fund Me page.
