Kevin is unable to afford urgent kidney surgery: Help him now as he has helped so many for so long
Issued by his friends on December 26, 2021
Many people know and love Kevin Annett Eagle Strong Voice as an unrelenting and courageous fighter for justice and for children. Those of us who have worked alongside him know him to be a loving and humble man who has never asked for anything for himself, but has devoted his life to serve others.
But now, on his behalf, we are asking for those who support Kevin to repay some of what he has given to humanity.
Last month, Kevin was diagnosed with an unusually large kidney stone that is unable to pass, and is continuing to grow. Very soon, it will threaten his kidney and cause other, possibly permanent damage.
His kidney stone must be surgically removed, but the cost of such surgery may exceed $40,000, since his British Columbia Medical Plan does not cover this procedure outside of the province. (Reluctantly, Kevin was forced to leave B.C. last summer after repeated attacks were made against his life.) At age 65, Kevin has little savings, has been permanently blacklisted from employment for over twenty years, and is blocked by the Canadian government from receiving Old Age Security and a pension.
We, the Friends of Kevin Annett, are asking you and those you know with the financial means to help us pay for the cost of Kevin’s kidney operation. We have already raised $5000 in donations but our goal is to raise $50,000, which will cover his treatments, surgery and hospital stay, along with follow up preventive treatments.
If you and others can contribute, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Kevin personally at email@example.com , or leave a message at 386-868-0218. We can arrange direct wire transfer deposits into an account we have set up for this fundraising effort.
On a final, equally urgent note, we are concerned that Kevin’s life will be in danger if he enters a hospital for surgery. Several members of our movement have died while in hospital because of documented foul play.
Knowing this risk, we ask that you help us create a circle of protection around Kevin during and after his surgery, through your physical or prayerful presence with him, and by alerting the world when he is undergoing surgery. We will hold a 24 hour vigil at the hospital during that time, and will have legal observers in or near the operating room.
Do not let Kevin’s many powerful adversaries cause his death, for then all of us will suffer! His life is in God’s hands, but also it is in ours.
We thank you and look forward to hearing from you,
The Friends of Kevin Annett
