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.
