Hola 

I’m reaching out to you today to inform you that the  Tribute & benefit for Boyd Jarvis, entitled The Music’s Got Me, A Musical Tribute to Boyd Jarvis. Which took place on October 27th 2016. Club Output In Brooklyn. Was a smash! Produced by Samir Hall
THE FIGHT HAS JUST BEGUN 
The music got him – and he got the music, 30-plus years and counting, Boyd Jarvis helped with shaping the building blocks of dance music as we know it today. Boyd has also been a crucial behind-the-scenes figure, writing, producing and remixing songs for everyone from Herbie Hancock and Latoya Jackson to Prince, Madonna and Boy George. Most Gotham music fans might fondly remember him from co-hosting Saturday Night Dance Party on WBLS radio alongside Shelter don Timmy Regisford, and his frequent collaborations with iconic producers like Joe Claussell, François K, Dave Morales, Little Louie Vega and more. It is for this reason that we are reaching out to you today to request your participation and motivation for putting this fundraiser
together for Boyd. He has been diagnosed with cancer and shortly will be going through chemotherapy and radiation therapy. I don’t have to tell you how medical expense and after care can bankrupt a person in these circumstances. With that said the prognosis for his recover is good. The intent was to raises funds to support his aftercare, position him mentally with spiritual and emotion support, that I know will be necessary for him to weather this impeding storm. 

We request a donation from your Heart .
Please respond at your earliest convenience, if you are willing and able to participate.

On a side note, Boyd’s birthday was October 26th.
I know Boyd has touched the lives of many and I hope that we collectively can reflect the love we all feel for him in his time of need.

Respectfully,

FAMILY AND FRIENDS MY BUSINESS IS OURS

I have very bad news. Brace yourself. I just received word from the doctors about the results of my biopsy. It is very bad news. Here goes, they found cancer in my esophagus. I will have to have major surgery. And they may have to remove my esophagus. It is a very serious and dangerous operation and there is a possibility of death. Either in surgery or even after surgery. There is a chance of success but a the moment they cant tell me what that ratio is. The up side is that the cancer has not spread and is not spreading, so far as we know. ``` the operation will not happen until two or three weeks from now. I will be investigating other options and second opinions, so we will be making lots and lots of calls. I am really sorry to tell you this bad news. I am not going to give up ,I am going to explore all the options. I just want you to know that I love you to the maximum, so don't fret. I am going to give it to my higher Power which most call god I just choose not to because I believe differently
