Patrick McKearn Fundraiser

Hi Friends

Monday October 29th between 5PM -10PM

we are remembering

Patrick McKearn at the


114 East 1 st Street Apt 18 .

 New York, New York 10009


Drop by for libations, snacks  and a party that Pat would love. Hope to see you there.

As you may know, Patrick McKearn—brilliant musician, writer, educator—has been battling a virulent form of salivary gland cancer for the past four years. He is currently undergoing a trial immunotherapy protocol, the results of which are very difficult to predict. In the coming weeks, whether the immunotherapy is effective or if he has to ready himself for hospice care, he will need funds, as his ability to continue working is daily diminished. Please join us in helping this remarkable man, who through all his trials, has kept to the ethos of deep communication through music and words.


Most recently he published a beautifully crafted and moving memoir about his role as a caregiver to his wife Linda when she was diagnosed with cancer. It can be found here


His other writing (and some music) can be found on his blog:


A collaborative CD made with Linda can be found here


Thank you in advance for your interest, compassion, and generosity. Sarah James Pat's sister is the person handling all his finances and will be directing funds raised through this campaign towards his care.
