Singer Pamela Moore – best known for singing the role of Sister Mary on Queensrÿche’s groundbreaking 1988 album Operation: Mindcrime – ran a GoFundMe campaign to benefit Scott “Fozzy” O’Hare.
According to a post on Moore’s Facebook page, O’Hare, who worked as the progressive metal band’s tour director for 16 years, suffered a series of debilitating strokes in mid-August. The campaign’s GoFundMe web page says that as a result, O’Hare’s vision has been significantly impaired and he is undergoing physical therapy to treat left-sided paralysis. To make a donation, go here.
Moore posted on the campaign site: “Fozzy is the sole provider in his household and is not able to work until he recovers, if he ever does. He feels a pressure that he cannot provide for his family and I would rather he didn’t feel that stress and focus on his recovery because his road to recovery will be really long. I don’t want him to have that extra worry about his family, how they’re going to live, or their future income. He absolutely needs our love and prayers, but they also need help with household bills, food, and growing medical bills. Fozzy has always been a very hardworking man, always there to help his family and dear friends … now he needs our help. If you feel like it, make a donation. Everything helps me … Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
