music is life, music is breath, music is us

Help for one of my biggest fans

A lovely lady named Diana DiGioia has been a huge supporter of my music for some time. Now she needs my support, and yours.

“Diana is a mother of two, and a fine art photographer who became disabled from complications after a routine surgery to remove an ovarian cyst, which causes her to be in pain when she walks and moves.

After lengthy unsuccessful treatment and two more surgeries, the pain was intensified. Diana could no longer walk without difficulty, and had to leave her beloved career as a photographic master custom printer and lab manager, at Dalmatian Black and White Lab in Greensboro, NC.

Diana was then forced to liquidate her household, said goodbye to her daughters (both in college at UNC Chapel Hill, at the time) and moved to her hometown, Pittsburgh PA, to stay with family and apply for a variety of social services; and seek better medical care.”
