SOULFLY Ask Fans To Help Injured Family Friend

The following message was posted on SOULFLY's official web site:

"Recently, our family friend, Joey Nugent, was severely injured in a house fire. You might remember him singing 'Pain' with Max and Richie at past D-Low Memorial shows, or you may have seen him slammin in our SOULFLY videos. He is stage diving with Dana [Max Cavalera's late stepson] at a DEFTONES concert in this photo.

"Because of our fans, over $200,000 has been collected for the Iggy Diabetes Fund, and over 1,500 items of children's clothing and toys are being shipped to an orphanage in Serbia. We have turned tragedy into triumph, and we thank you all.

"Joey's mother has set up a fund for him at Bank of America. The account is titled 'Joey's Fund' and the account number is 4370758910.

"It's a savings account for Joey to help with his mounting medical bills and to replace personal items. He will be hospitalized for at least one year, with months of rehab. If there's a Bank of America in your neighborhood, and you have a spare dollar, and the time, maybe you could contribute to help him rebuild his life. If you are unable to get to a Bank of America, we are accepting check/money orders made out to 'Joey's Fund', which can be mailed to:

Joey's Fund
c/o Oasis Management
3010 East Bloomfield Road
Phoenix, Arizona 85032

"It would be greatly appreciated, even though Joey can't tell you himself now.

"The biggest reward in life is to help others, and SOULFLY fans never stop. SOULFLY is about never giving up, having the strength to carry on AGAINST ALL ODDS, and trusting in God to show us the way. NO HOPE NO FEAR!"
