Life-Saving Surgery for Saul Rayo

Our dear friend, Saul Rayo, is back in Mexico for surgery on a tumor next to his spine. He has been in great pain for weeks waiting for the surgery date, 10/6/20. He has very good prospects for a full recovery once the surgery is complete.
In the meantime, Saul and Elena have no income and many expenses. We are asking our community to step up and offer what you are able, willing and can give joyfully.
This from Elena: "Saul just burst into tears when I told him this email [about this GoFundMe], and he is  crying right now. He is so overcome. 
He’s been very worried about the cost of everything, even though I keep telling him to just focus on healing right now and that everything will work out.  
He says as he is going into surgery tomorrow, and he says, 'to know there are good people like yourselves who are willing to help and to that degree, is such a huge weight off'."
For every dollar give to Saul's fund, there is a matching donation up to $20,000. So please give generously to support our friends and our musical community.
