David started his career in the late 80's , he had many memorable appearances and have created an array of great tunes, and most recently 2 albums with his band Bluestone. In 2014 he finally had the opportunity to sign with a record label, and change his continued struggle as a musician to a more financial stable future. He received his Cancer diagnosis ONE HOUR after receiving the record label offer, after being in the business for almost 30 years. Timing is everything, and timing was not on David's side. David had surgery, removed the cancer and went on a strict regime. The record deal never happened, as the word spread that David was sick. It was devastating to him and to the band who thought their break was finally happening.
We worked hard after David's recovery to get David Shelley and Bluestone as much exposure as possible in the US, Canada and Europe. 2015 was a promising year, with many festivals lined up, including an Europe debut in May. Now a year after the initial diagnosis the cancer is back, and David has no choice but to battle it out with the right treatment. All we worked for will be cancelled, hopefully postponed, until David makes a strong return. Timing again is not on David's side.
All the donations will be used for David's medical expenses, to keep his insurance active, basic life expenses covered as he will not be working for at least 6 months. For questions and private donations please contact us.
We hope that the love that the fans have around the world will encourage them to donate towards this cause. This very important assistance will ensure that David has the essential needed to battle this awful disease and make a strong come back.
Thank you all so much for your support, God bless and may David's soul shine though these dark times.
