The Ben Eyestone Fund

The Ben Eyestone Fund provides diagnostic healthcare access to uninsured or underinsured music industry professionals who have an obvious diagnostic need.

The Ben Eyestone Fund is funded entirely by Ben’s friends and family to honor him — a young, brilliant drummer — who passed away much too soon on July 12, 2018. Ben’s life was lost because he was denied access to life-saving diagnostic healthcare for being uninsured.
