Our close friend and guitarist in the Long Island music scene John Cunningham is very ill and his friends have gotten together to put on a benefit concert for John and his family. Except for his immediate family John has kept his illness private and in secret. John was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer. John went through surgery and rounds of chemotherapy.
Being a small business owner, self employed and supporting a family of five, the high cost of his medical treatment and his inability to work has put John and his family in emotional and financial distress. During his recovery further test results were received. The results were severe. The diagnosis was Stage 3B Non Carcinoma. John’s cancer had spread to his stomach and to his Aorta. The five-year survival rate is approximately only fourteen percent. John and his family are now in a fight for his life. He has just finished another round of intense chemotherapy and needs to go through three more rounds of these intense treatments before they can attempt his next surgery.
As of November 10th the family’s finances will be depleted.
