I AM WRITING THIS POST WITH TEARS IN MY EYES. AFTER BEING UNABLE TO WALK OR USE MY HANDS FOR OVER A YEAR, YESTERDAY I GOT SOME GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS …THE GOOD NEWS IS FROM MY DOCTOR WHO SAYS THAT AFTER A FEW MORE PRP INJECTIONS I COULD BE WALKING AGAIN! THE BAD NEWS IS THAT MEDICARE REFUSES TO PAY FOR MY $800.00 INJECTIONS!
AFTER MOVING INTO THE ASSISTED LIVING PREMIER CARE FACILITY IN PALM SPRINGS, CA NINE MONTHS AGO,MY 24 HOUR CARE IS COSTING ME $75000 A YEAR. ALTHOUGH MEDICARE AND MEDICAL PAY MOST OF THE BILLS I HAVE TO PAY MY SHARE WHICH INCLUDES ALL OF MY SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK AND ALL OF MY ROYALTIES, LEAVING ME ABOUT $35 A MONTH, HOWEVER INTENSE PHYSICAL THERAPY AND WORKING WITH ACTIVITIES DIRECTOR BLAIRE DEWAR 2 WEEKS AGO I STARTED TO USE MY RIGHT HAND AND BEGAN TO PAINT AGAIN GIVING ME A CHANCE TO GET BACK ON MY FEET AGAIN!

I’M GLAD TO SAY MY ARTISTIC ABILITIES HAVEN’T DIMINISHED AND I WANT TO OFFER MY $4500.00 CREATION TO ONE OF MY FIRST CLIENTS, WHO BOUGHT SEVERAL JACKETS AND SHIRTS FROM ME, ROBERT DOWNEY, JR.(“IRON MAN 1,2,AND 3”) UNFORTUNATELY I DON’T KNOW HOW TO REACH HIM.
I’D ALSO LIKE TO CONTACT OPRAH WINFREY, ELLEN DEGENERES, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, AND DIANE SAWYER WHO I’M WOULD BE INTERESTED IN MY STORY…BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW TO REACH ANY OF THEM DIRECTLY. IF ANY OF YOU OUT THERE CAN HELP ME I WOULD DEEPLY APPRECIATE IT!
MY E-MAIL ADDRESS IS firstname.lastname@example.org and phone # at PREMIER CARE CENTER IS (760) 323-2638 ROOM 42C UNDER MY REAL NAME WAYNE KENT
HERE’S THE VIDEO OF ME DANCING IN MY WHEELCHAIR TO SONG I JUST WROTE “DANCE IN YOUR SEAT” WITH TRADE MARTIN. MY DOCTOR SAYS IF I CONTINUE TO MAKE PROGRESS LIKE THIS WITH MY PRP INJECTIONS I COULD BE WALKING IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS! YOU’LL ALSO GET TO SEE SOME OF THE T-SHIRTS MY STUDENTS ARE MAKING.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS, FOR GOD WHO’S BEEN LISTENING TO THEM, AND FOR CHARLIE JENKINS HEAD OF PREMIER CARE WHO’S ENCOURAGING ME TO CONDUCT MORNING EXERCISES FOR THE PATIENTS , TEACH AN ART CLASS, AND LET ME HEAD UP A PROGRAM THAT HAS BROUGHT IN HUNDREDS OF DVDS FOR THE PATIENTS TO WATCH FOR AND AND DOZENS OF BLANK T-SHIRT FOR THE PATIENTS TO PAINT!

After I had to be rescued from a nursing home in Desert Hot Springs, Ca., where I was drugged in order for them to seize my assets I moved into a small studio apartment in Palm Springs. When I was no longer able to walk or use my hands, I reluctantly moved into the Premium Care Center in Palm Springs, where I happily was looked after with kindness and compassion 24 hours a day. It wasn’t long before I became productive again!
I’m happy to say that my FACEBOOK friends and readers of my blog ARTIE WAYNE ON THE WEB have donated 227 DVDS to Premier care including classics like, “WHITE CHRISTMAS” AND “CASABLANCA” to current box office smashes, “HUNGER GAMES” AND “IRON MAN 3”
I also help to conduct daily exercise classes and teach art classes twice a week, showing residents how to paint shirts, which I hope we’ll sell at the Palm Springs street fair. Up until now I’ve been paying for all the t-shirts and paint myself which I no longer can afford able to do. If you’d like to make a donation to keep this program going please click here https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/2013/11/30/how-to-donate-paint-and-t-shirts/
