Jazz-in for George Melvin!

♫♪ Jazz-in for George ♪♫

George Melvin Medical Benefit

The Situation

After a fifteen-year battle with late-diagnosed Type II Diabetes and a series of health complications that resulted from that, George Melvin finds himself in need of assistance with medical costs. Dialysis that started in 2005, and a rare dialysis-related condition in combination with a bone infection in his diabetic foot that were diagnosed in 2008 and that diminished George’s earning ability have also swamped the Melvins with medical bills. In addition, the kidney transplant that could offer George greater freedom to travel for work could ironically also be the one hope that George has for gaining  remission or even improvement from the poorly understood dialysis-related condition. Though kidney transplant is not a consistent remedy for NSF, it is currently the most hopeful treatment that has been documented. For more info Georgemelvinbenefit.org

George’s friends and music community are joining together to try to help him to retire his existing medical bills and start an ongoing fund that could enable him to obtain the hoped-for kidney transplant.

The Benefit

The Jazz community & friends of the Melvins have come together to help raise money for their medical bills.
