Time and a Word

Just trying to do the next right thing in our collaborative recovery during COVID-19.  I am a guitar player, and saw Victoria Williams in Nashville, years ago.  At this time, and with insurance issues looming larger than ever, I need to be of service, too.  She is such an inspiration, and probably would not laugh if I had to go have a cigarette, every once in a while.  Please give a dollar or two.

The Musicians Cancer Fund @ SweetRelief was developed to offer support and resources to musicians and music industry workers currently battling or recovering from all forms of cancer and other extremely debilitating illnesses and injuries. The amount of assistance required is often significant and well beyond the level of most requests for help.

  • Specific program resources and assistance grants
  • The Musicians Cancer Fund works with musicians, stage crew, sound engineers, bartenders, servers, etc. their families, friends, and music industry support to develop additional fundraising opportunities that will counteract the overwhelming financial demands of severe illness & disability treatment and recovery.
  • Assistance is available to help individuals navigate the confusing benefit structure of health insurance or state/federal aid charity care.
  • Medical bill negotiation assistance
  • Resource and Referral networks – helping an artist reach all the avenues of support in their regional area and particular ailment.

The Musicians Cancer Fund has assisted some great American Icons, Artists, and hard-working venue/bar staff during their difficult experiences battling cancer and other severe illness & disability.  We have also assisted hundreds of hard-working regional musicians and music workers and continue to do so with your support and generosity.

Contributions to The Musicians Cancer Fund will help to pay for a music industry worker's medical expenses, housing, food, and other vital living expenses such as utilities, clothing, transportation, program services, and counseling.
