Playing Music For All The Cancer Patients in The Room!
Vickie was diagnosed in late August 2017 with Neuroendocrine Carcinoma. In October she started treatments at the Comprehensive Cancer Center in Las Vegas.
In early December 2017, I asked if I could play for all the patients. Permission was needed from corporate. Two weeks later I started a regular performance schedule on Tuesday and Fridays. These are the day my honey Vickie gets her treatment.
Just wanted to let you all know, it's going well. So well in fact, Im getting new song request every week from the patients! This week I need to learn " Strangers In The Night" !
That's all for now. Now it's your turn to go share your talents with those in need.
Keep Being Brilliant!
PS - The photo includes me, Vickie, ands her favorite nurse Patty!

Thank You In Advance,
It Has Been a Busy Summer, Full of Adventure, Health Issues, Sporting Events and Birthdays!
June 4, 2016 Went To Emergency Room with Blood Pressure 201/110. June 6th had An Emergency Stent for 90% blockage in my right artery. They released me June 7th and I felt great! July 5-10th I was the official photographer for the International Mixed Martial Arts World Championships 2016.
August 1st, started feeling crappy again, shortness of breath, sever headaches ect.... August 17th celebrated my birthday! Then went to Emergency room again August 21st. Turns out I caught an Pneumonia. September 3rd went back to emergency room because I developed a bad rash over my body and my throat was closing up and had trouble breathing. And honestly I was scared. Turns out I had a severe reaction to the antibiotics I was taking for the Pneumonia! In the midst of all that, my honey Vickie has been experiencing her own health challenges.
Am I complaining? No, just sharing the roller coaster of a summer it has been!
So, How Has Your Summer Been???
I will say this, I am so GRATEFUL for all the support and prayers I received via Email, Text, Facebook and phone calls! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
As we enter the fall, kids go back to school, Apple has another launch coming up, guitar gigs are scheduled and the leaves will start falling from the trees!
With that being said: Focus on the good in your life. Look for the best in people. Be the encourager, not the discourager. Hold on and hold tight for the Fall Season is just beginning!
Keep Being Brilliant,
PS- Just got the Hospital bill - $136,451! Thank God I have good insurance. MY portion is only about $8000. I may have to do a GoFundMe Fund Raiser...
Working a retail job during the winter months is a playground for getting a cold or catching the flu. In October I started fist bumping versus shaking hands. A few thought I was joking, but I was SPOT ON SERIOUS!
Until last week, it seemed that most everyone I knew had caught a cold or flu to some degree or another. Because of my fist bumping, I thought the COLD GODS had given me a pass. Then Sunday I started Sneezing. Monday I had the shakes, caughing ETC... By Monday night I had to admit defeat! I caught that nasty bugger of a cold! It's been almost a week and I am feeling better but not out of the woods yet.
Here Is a LIST of Things From The CDC To Help You Prevent Catching The Flu This Season.
- Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
- If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)
- While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
