Sonny Mayo, former Snot/Ugly Kid Joe/Sevendust/Amen guitarist, has launched a gofundme campaign, to raise funds for cutting edge medical treatment following a second heart attack earlier this year.
“I have been clean and sober for over 16 years”, comments Sonny. “I don’t smoke, and I’ve lived a plant based diet for nearly 5 years. Even with the prescribed medications and my clean lifestyle, I am still at risk of having further complications with my stents due to the long term effects of the two heart attacks. My goal is to receive allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells to treat the damage and inflammation in my arteries and my heart. Unfortunately, the treatment is not covered by insurance”.
Sonny has spent the last four years working with Rock To Recovery, a non-profit treatment program based in Southern California that uses music therapy to help those in recovery.
