Sonny Rhodes, the man who sang the Firefly theme song, is in need of our assistance. Today on Whedonesque, Brian (from Done the Impossible) let Whedon fans know that Sonny Rhodes could use our help. He is a very proud man, but circumstances related to medical conditions are preventing him from working, and he's trying to keep a roof over his head.
Sonny hasn't performed since October 2008, except for once or twice against his doctor's wishes when he had to keep the power from being shut off and pay rent, and doing that made his condition worse. He just had an emergency hernia operation and needs to have two hip operations as soon as possible.
If you can help in anyway please visit Sonny's Myspace page and make a secure Paypal donation. If you can't help out financially, please help spread the news.
