Help Bernie Worrell Fight Lung Cancer

For those that missed the news, keyboard player extraordinaire, Bernie Worrell is fighting cancer. For those that can and want to help you'll find a donation page to help with his expenses on YouCaring here.

"Bernie is an inspired musician who has helped to shape the face of modern music. From his days as one of the founders of the legendary Parliament-Funkadelic, to his groundbreaking work with Talking Heads, Material, Praxis, and dozens more, Bernie Worrell’s pioneering use of synthesizers and emerging keyboard technologies has transcended musical genres and touched us all.

He is a musical force, a legend in our time, and an exceptional human being known for his creative warmth, generosity of spirit, and his deep commitment to his ideals. He is much beloved by family, friends, and legions of fans.

Now, Bernie needs our help. 

Recently Bernie learned he has fourth-stage lung cancer which has metastasized to his liver and pleural areas. Bernie and his wife Judie need the means to act quickly and aggressively to pursue the very best medical care. 

Bernie’s course of treatment is not covered by insurance. He and Judie need funds immediately to help him get medical care for this fast-spreading disease. All money raised will go directly to supporting Bernie’s medical expenses and other related expenses.

No donation is too small. Please help in whatever amount you can. Let's return some of the love that Bernie has shared selflessly with us for over forty years."

On a side note, what is it with our healthcare in the US? It's ridiculous. Giving this one the politics label, not to detract from this post, but just to be sure people that check the label are aware of the problem. Healthcare should not be for profit.
