About the Event
I am honored to participate in this special fundraiser concert that Texas Folklife is hosting for my dear friend, Tawny Thomson-Bush, in which all proceeds will go towards her efforts to receive life saving stem cell chemotherapy treatment.
This event includes performances by world music greats and colleagues:
Oliver Rajamani, Roberto Riggio, and Atlas Maior (Joshua Thomson, Tawny's son, is the leader of this amazing band) TICKETS: $35
Tawny Thomson-Bush has been a warrior with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for 20 years, with courage, positivity, a great sense of humor and grace. A new application of hematopoetic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has been discovered and is a game changer for people with MS. This is the same procedure that has been used by actress Selma Blair earlier this year and 1000s of others.
The procedure has been used for two decades for cancer. It was just written up in the Journal of the American Medical Association for its success as an MS treatment that essentially rids the body of MS cells and reboots the immune system.
The greater medical community is learning how to treat patients with hematopoetic stem cell transplantation (HSCT.) It will take time. Tawny doesn't have time. Her MS is transitioning to a more advanced type. If she waits much longer, even this new procedure is not likely to help her.
So it is with great humility and dire need that we are organizing this concert to help her from sinking further. Please join us in supporting Tawny's journey to healing.
