In case you have not heard, Jeff Pinkham has been diagnosed with Cancer and like many of us today, has no health insurance. Jeff and his family need our support. Yes, they need financial help and if you can do that, there are several ways below that you can help (buy a ticket for the benefit, donate thru pay pal or send a check). But they also need to feel our support as a community, as a music family. Evidence shows that people who have an extensive, vocal, loving, energetic support system do much better at fighting this terrible disease.
