Alejandro Rojas is a very talented singer/composer/arranger/guitar player from Caracas, Venezuela. I met him many years ago when he joined the famous Venezuelan Beatles cover band "Los Beat 3" He was then very young and ready to go out and become a serious performer. "Los Beat 3" gave him that opportunity and with that opportunity came great responsibility and challenges. Axel, as he prefers to be called, pursued his career and has always been true to his passion, music! He recently moved to the USA, looking for better work opportunities, given the political unrest in our country of origin. On May of 2015 he was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis) a disease where the body attacks itself. The symptoms go from mild to severe, and from temporary to permanent. He needs immediate treatment with an expensive injection called "Avonex" in order to avoid major damages. The price of this medication ranges between $4,500 and $5,300. His insurance covers a small percentage. Axel has to cover the rest. To make matters more difficult, he lost his job and he's counting on his friends and his mother in Venezuela for help. Any amount would be appreciated and would help this wonderful, talented person. THANK YOU!!
