A wonderful friend of our family and a beautiful musician Al Skaronea has been diagnosed with cancer. The cancer started in his tonsil but has metastasized to his lymph nodes and has spread further throughout his body. Al has been a musician all his life supporting his family by giving piano lessons to children throughout the community and playing gigs with his jazz band " Sessions" for many years. He is a well loved member of our community and a wonderful teacher who has touched the life of many a starting pianist and we are hoping to help Al and his family with their mounting medical bills and financial responsibilities during this rough time. Al still gives lessons daily and plays each weekend with his band until the time he may be unable to do so. Let the music play on and help Dr. Jazz by alleviating some of the enormous bills, even if you have a dollar to spare I assure you it is money well spent and this man is a very deserving individual. Al has done his part for many a fundraiser himself over the years even if he has not known the individual personally he has always offered his services at no cost by playing with his band at any event out of the kindness of his heart. His heart is music and he will give it freely to anyone who cares to listen. Thank you kindly for any donations.
