On Friday, January 25, 2008 world-renowned saxophonist/composer Andrew D'Angelo suffered a major seizure while driving in Brooklyn, NY. Tests in the hospital revealed a large tumor in his brain. Andrew will undergo brain surgery at some point in the next few weeks. At this time, it is believed that the tumor is not cancerous, but this will not be confirmed until a biopsy is performed.
Like many Americans, Andrew has no health insurance. A fund has been established to help with the costs of his surgery and recovery. Donations can be sent via PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org. We deeply appreciate any efforts that can be made to spread the word about Andrew's situation.
Benefit concerts are currently being planned for New York City and Boston. More information about these concerts will be posted on www.andrewdangelo.com as soon as it is available".
So far for the press release. The latest news I heard is that Skirl Records will use the income from the sales of his latest CD Skadra Degis to help cover the costs. So buying the CD will help him.
You can buy the CD from Skirl Records.
