If you want to support spine surgery for Prudence Mabhena, featured in the film Music by Prudence, we have gotten some information from Rick Hodes:

The cost of spine surgery alone would probably be in the area of $7500-$10,500. I don’t know how much hand surgery might cost. With airfare, plus the cost of housing and her attendants, we’re probably talking about $18,000- $20,000.

Anyone who wants to help Prudence can donate to JDC and we’ll take care of the rest. It is tax-deductible and the easiest way to do this is to go to my website: Rickhodes.org then click on donate.

The donor has to click on “CHECK HERE IF THIS GIFT IS A TRIBUTE TO SOMEONE.” They should type in “Prudence”, so it goes to the right budget line.

100% of funds designated to Prudence will reach her, no cuts are taken out along-the-way.

All my best,
