GO FUND ME ... Stryper Drummer Robert Sweet's wife has "Enlarged Uterus", needs $50K for "Hysterectomy"

Post by MetalSludgeCEO »

Here ya go...

----------------------------------

Robert Sweet :
My wife Victoria “Starri” Sweet is going through a very tough time and our friends have decided to look to God, friends, family and others to help through this GoFundMe.

Starri was diagnosed with an enlarged uterus. Since the diagnosis, her uterus has steadily grown in size and is currently the size of a grapefruit. This has led her to suffer from extreme chronic pain, problems breathing and excessive bleeding. She has already received one blood transfusion and will need another one unless she can successfully schedule and have a complete hysterectomy.

We currently do not have health insurance and the recent transfusion, office visits and other health related expenses have been slowly adding up. Starri has the surgery scheduled for November 9.

Victoria (Starri) Sweet Medical Battle


Our friend Victoria “Starri” Sweet is going through a very tough time and we have decided to look to God, friends, family and others to help. Starri was diagnosed with an enlarged uterus. Since the diagnosis, her uterus has steadily grown in size and is currently the size of a grapefruit. This has led her to suffer from extreme chronic pain, problems breathing and excessive bleeding. She has already received one blood transfusion and will need another one unless she can successfully schedule and have a complete hysterectomy.

Starri currently does not have health insurance and the recent transfusion, office visits and other health related expenses have been slowly adding up. Starri has the surgery scheduled for November 9; however, she has to register and make a down payment on November 6. If she is unable to make the down payment for the surgery, it will result in her having to re-schedule which could take up to a year given the waiting list of patients needing similar procedures. This will also lead to additional blood transfusions and more health related expenses; not to mention increasing pain, more problems breathing and additional spikes in other symptoms.

Given past medical bills continuing to stack and the desperate need of this particular surgery, the family has decided to turn to the kindness of others and is welcoming monetary donations. Starri and her family are grateful and appreciative of all who have reached out and showed so much support and compassion during this difficult time.

Shame. No one in the US should be without affordable health care.

However, to keep supporting assholes who don't want you to have it is just plain stupid.

There's a lot to complain about Sweden, but damn it, you will not be taken to the cleaners if you need a life saving surgery.

I can't say anything particularly nice here. We get older and all of us realize that at some point, you're going to need medical fucking attention. To not have insurance at this age is just fucking stupid. If the plan was always "I'll just ask the fans for help when we need it", then you're a POS. But I guess that's what most religious leaders do. Ask for money.

This. We had to use Obamacare for several years before my wife got a job that provided it a couple years ago, one year it cost like $12 a month for basic insurance with a $5k deductible for our family of 6. It was a lifesaver. Other years it was around $100-$200 a month, I think we upgraded our coverage. Best thing was all our doctors took it but there were a few hospitals that didn't but there were plenty that did.

Robert should also check out Music Cares, they have funds and resources that help musicians in these cases, I'm sure they help spouses also.

Has anyone told them that it's clearly God's will so it should not be questioned or challenged?

I'm thankful to live in a country that still has a public health service, no matter that it's is getting extremely creaky - deliberately, by the bastards that want to kill it and profit from the carcass.

Maybe Tim Gaines was onto something...? About the Stryper camp... hmmmm.

Michael Sweet does project after project and with all respect, seems to be the "king" in that camp, running the business, writing, recording and more.

He has also had some health issues himself, eye surgeries, went through divorce, death of his ex-wife, remarried and more.

I don't recall him starting a GoFundMe for any of this, but he is selling cloth masks with yellow stripes on them for $75 each during the pandemic.

Now... let's look at the others...

Tim Gaines bailed a few times, or was ousted, etc... but has never had much good to say about the band. his ex-bandmates and so on.

Oz... well, he married Dumbo, who starts GoFundMe campaigns like most people start their cars. And he too had health issues, which saw he and his wife asking for money to pay for the costs, bills, hospital, and more.

Robert... now his wife is in trouble with a health concern and they too are asking for $50,000.00 to help cover these costs.

Not trying to stir the pot here, as they stir it enough on their own... but it looks like Stryper is Michael's piggy-bank, okay, good for him... but it also looks like he's sh!t on his bandmates and own brother when they may have needed a little help from the inside.

Something stinks with all the GoFundMe campaigns from this band... lame.

Interesting....

Me and my wife went through the marketplace for health insurance. As long as we filed our taxes jointly then we would each receive a tax credit of around $450.00 per month ($900.00 combined) but still have to pay $180.00 per month each. That is a huge savings with it being $360.00 per month for both of us after the tax credit. If we didn't file joint tax returns or not married and a single person thrn gets zero tax credits and has to pay full price of $630.00 per month each. So much for affordable care act. If you're a single person then it's pretty much a bug fuck you. These were New York State prices.

Stryper beg more then a fetty whore on skid row. Robert is usually a total dick to fans and usually never throws a drumstick. You a broke bitch to not have obamacare as its income based. Again anybody can afford it so your $50,000 need is BS. Sign up now Robert as its open enrollment. Stryper are beyond pathetic bum bitches.

Not true. If you are married, you can't file as single. You either file joint or separate. Joint you get tax credit, separate you don't. A single unmarried person gets full tax credits (income based scale) with a short list of exceptions (i.e. someone claims them as dependent)

She's been overweight for years. The kind of overweight where health insurance is a must.

Too bad hubby Robert spends all his Stryper money on keeping himself pilled to the gills.
