Billy Keenan is every one of us.  

The quintessential model father, husband, friend, soldier, teacher, scholar, musician, and proud Irish American... Billy is someone we all know, or will know.   He is like everyone of us.   He has taught our kids, helped so many of our causes, and sang at our churches, parties and weddings.   

In September, Billy had the most unfortunate accident down the Jersey Shore while doing what he loves, surfing.  Suffering catastrophic injury to his spinal cord, Billy is unable to use his arms or legs, and requires assistance 24 hours a day.  

His friends, family, bandmates, associates, and fellow Irish Americans will not let him down... we will support his family with all our connections, skills, generosity energy, and our love.   Billy would be doing it for every one of us...    

#KeenanStrong s an organization 100% dedicated to helping Billy and his family   Every penny we collect goes to them...  Help us help them right now!
