Rick Jonckheere Foundation
On Tuesday, January 9, Rick Jonckheere died unexpectedly of a very rare autoimmune disease, CVID. Rick was first-year student Drums at the Rock Academy of Fontys Hogeschool of the Arts and only eighteen years young.
Rick was a modest student with whom others liked to work with and above all make music together. His illness, of which few people knew, did not prevent him to realizing his dream; he was a passionate and energetic student with many plans for the future.
We would have liked to see him grow into a graduate performer, sadly it was not to be. A big loss.
Research to this rare primary immune deficiency is desperately needed. Your donation is therefore of great value.
