(Los Angeles, CA) Back in April, multi-award winning performer, director and nine-year adult veteran Prince Yahshua joined the OC Modeling roster and continues to film and direct, working with the top stars in the biz. Almost three years after being injured on set and undergoing emergency surgery on his most notorious member, Prince has encountered another setback and needs a similar surgery after another on-set injury. His surgery and aftercare will cost over $32k and he’ll be unable to work for three to four weeks. His talent agency, OC Modeling, is behind him 100 percent and has started a fundraising page through GoFundMe.com.
“Blown away is what I feel right now,” says Prince Yahshua. “I’m saddened to tell the industry and my diehard fans around the world that the injury that sidelined me three years ago has come back to bite me in a big way. After seeing and talking to my doctor on Friday, I was informed once again that I must go under the knife to repair bad tissue damage ASAP! Today, my heart is a lot happier after seeing what Sandra and OCM has done for me by starting this fundraiser—I’m speechless! I’d like to thank Sandra, OCM and the fans and companies that have made me who I am today.”
“When Prince contacted me with the devastating news, I was at a loss for words…tears were rolling down my cheeks,” says Sandra McCarthy, co-owner of OC Modeling. “I knew I needed to help him emotionally and financially, so I started this fundraiser to help ease the pressure of the huge expenses that were on the way. Healthcare is unaffordable, and Prince doesn’t have a plan due to his pre-existing condition, so he’ll have to pay for the entire surgery out-of-pocket. Lately, the industry seems to have been taking hit after hit, but we all need to stick together and unite as one, so we can get through whatever life throws at us.”
Prince is asking his fans and industry friends help him with the cost of the surgery and give whatever they can by going to http://www.gofundme.com/40d6g4.
