For starters, my brother Aaron plays guitar and sings in reggae band Thrive, which started the project after their saxophone player was diagnosed with colon and liver cancer. I am further biased by the work I have done and am currently doing in health care, which has put me in touch with the courageous people who struggle with and treat cancer on various levels.
So I am blatantly plugging the Unify to Thrive project. It has nothing to do with my regular beat here at the Tucson Weekly - restaurants, food, booze, etc ... - but it has everything to do with my earnest hope that anyone suffering from cancer might know a bit of relief thanks to the good work being done out there.
That is all.
