Save The FUNK~! Funk-Raiser! Needs Your Help!

Hello Friends, Family, Readers, and Community is an INDEPENDENT entertainment web site focusing mostly on Music but also covering Television, Movies, and Entertainment News, and Gossip.

Having to keep up with and hopefully get ahead of such sites as TMZ and Perez Hilton, I need YOUR help. The game has changed and the site needs to be revamped and the visibility of the site has to be improved.

I’ve been trying to do it myself but it is obvious I need YOUR help to make the site better and to be able to continue running the site. I LOVE running the site and providing information and posts for you each day. The costs of running it and being able to compete is becoming harder however. has provided exclusive content on artists such as Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Adam Lambert, No Doubt, Nikka Costa, Green Day, and others. I want to still be able to provide you with exclusive music from these artists including interviews, videos, insider tips, and much more.

Also, there is something else; my health.

I am a diabetic.

In the past 6 months, my health has deteriorated. I have been having pains and spasms with my legs and feet that just have not stopped, and I cannot stand for long periods of time at all.

I do not have medical coverage and have not seen a doctor since this has begun because of not having insurance. The pain is quite serious. I have been able to keep the diabetes under control with weight loss in the past but have been putting more money into the site than my health to make it succeed. I understand though, in order to make the site even more successful, I need my own personal health to succeed as well.

Through this fundraising page, I’m asking for your help. Here is your opportunity to help make a difference So if you would be inspired or inclined to help out the site, and I would be extremely grateful.

Please consider giving an amount that is meaningful to you. I’m grateful for anything–even if it’s only $5.

Love and Funk from Drfunkenberry….

    Hi JS. I’m sorry to hear about your diabetes. You didn’t specify, but I presume you have Type 2 diabetes? If so, the good news is that this is a completely preventable AND curable disease (in most cases). A low carb paleo type diet has helped hundreds of individuals control or reverse their type 2 diabetes (by reverse, I mean so long as they don’t consume excess carbohydrates). Please email me if you want more information on this, as I personally know many doctors who use this approach to manage the health of their patients’ with Type 2 diabetes.

    Awww, this is not a good thing. Please take care of you! I am also a blogger (although I don’t make money from it!), so I know how hard you work. I have a few blogs, and know that they take so much of your time, and you heart if you care about what you are writing about! I also quit my full time job to be a better parent to my daughter, and follow my passion of writing. Freelance writing is tough, but I am fortunate that I have my health and I live in Canada, so our health care system is great!

    It is nice to see that some of the lovely ladies with the NPG are supporting your plea for help, you must be very proud! Keep doing what you are doing, good things will come, and have faith! All the best!

    Doc-anything for you! I will spread the word on my facebook page as well. You’ve done nothing but nice things for me with supporting me and my music-so I am so there for you too. My dad is a diabetic and I certainly know all about it. Please take care of yourself…we need your awesome site to keep us all informed-but we also need you :o) Hope we can get together next time we are in LA and listen to some funky music together. All my love and my contribution is on the way. xoxo Elisa Fiorillo

    I’m in a similar boat — self-employed and no health insurance, but thankfully still in good health. But just incurred a $3,000 vet bill – ugh. It is tough out there, my friend. I cannot afford much, but will definitely make a donation to help your cause and will help spread the word.

    Take good care of yourselff!

    I have been a fan of yours for many years. I’ve always admired you for the time and energy that you have devoted for so many people. You have always been so giving in that regard, and I have always been so grateful.

    We need! I check in throughout the day, loving the anticipation of what new information or story you have to send our way next. I love your humor, honesty, integrity and trustworthiness.

    Let’s all do what we can to help!

    No but seriously. I know it must be tough for you DF, I honestly feel for you. Take care of yourself as best as you can, listen to the doctors, do what is best for you.

    GO TO County, sign up for Healthy Way LA, just take care of your health ASAP. There are several county hospitals around LA, just GO… like NOW.

    Wishing you the best man!

    Dr. Funkenberry. Go to an emergency room and let them check you out. It’s better than letting your health deteriorate. Feel better, feel good, feel wonderful!
