For those of you that aren’t aware, Max has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. The Drs. are running the many tests necessary to track his progress as Max continues to fight!
As it often is with professional musicians, Max was at first without medical insurance, although he does have an insurance now. However, there are still the initial bills, and ongoing co-pays and therapies that insurance is just not going to pay. That, along with him being unable to perform right now, his living expenses are becoming insurmountable.
We’re very happy that so many of you are on board to help Max in his time of need! We would like to ask you all to make sure to ‘invite’ your Facebook friends, send to your email lists, and anyway other avenues at your disposal, to get the word out. There will be some auctioning, raffles, and other cool things going on at the benefit.
