Wife of Neurosis’ Scott Kelly falls ill

Posted by on March 30, 2015

kellyfamilyBe it via his work as the leader of Neurosis, bands such as Tribes of Neurot and Corrections House or as the owner of Neurot Records, Scott Kelly is one of the leaders of underground extreme music. This past Tuesday (24), his wife Sarah woke up unable to walk or see. She’s in the hospital now, and there’s no direct diagnosis of what’s wrong with her. A friend of the band has started a crowdfunding campaign to help with medical bills for Sarah and her family. Here’s what she has to say about the campaign:

Please consider helping to assist the family of my dear friends, Sarah and Scott Kelly.
Sarah woke up on Tuesday March 24th unable to walk or see. She was immediately admitted to Rogue Regional Medical Center in Medford, OR.  As of today, (Sunday March 29th), the doctors are still not able to identify an exact diagnosis.  Currently, her eyes have gotten significantly better but she is still not able to walk.  She has begun rehabbing in the hospital, but it’s slow going.
While most people know Scott from his work with his bands (Neurosis, Tribes of Neurot, Corrections House, etc…), his most cherished role is that of a father and husband.   As he stays close to Sarah at this time, medical bills and every day living costs are building.  I’m asking you to help where you can, spread the word of this fundraiser and please keep Sarah in your thoughts.  I will provide updates on how she is doing as soon as I receive them.  Thank you for considering to help The Kelly Family at this time.
Love & light to you all,
Karrie Morton

As of this time, the fund has raised over $7,200 in 16 hours. Given the rich musical legacy that Kelly is responsible for, it’s good to see people supporting him and his family in what’s certainly a difficult time for them.
