On June 14th, 2019, after a week of unexplained fatigue on his gigs, the great jazz guitarist VIC JURIS, one of the kindest and most talented musicians in the world, was diagnosed with metastatic liver cancer. He is currently at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ, receiving treatment.
Due to complications, we don’t yet know when Vic will be able to go home, to continue treatment, and work towards recovery, but we’re praying it will be soon.
Kate Baker, Vic’s wife, has informed us that while Vic does have some medical insurance, it only covers part of his needed treatment. It will be a long recovery before he’ll be able to work again so he needs help with his living expenses.
We are reaching out to our great musical community and friends for donations to help Vic through this terrible ordeal.
Most of all…Vic needs our positive loving thoughts and prayers as he travels the difficult road ahead.
Thank you in advance for any words you want to share with Vic and any financial help you would like to offer. Please spread the word.
Vic really needs us...
Gunnar Mossblad & Dave Stryker
From Vic… “I want to thank Dave Stryker and Gunnar Mossblad for their years of friendship, and their work in putting all of this together. And to my colleagues, family and friends, in and out of the music community, Kate and I truly appreciate all of your support, love, and good wishes. Seeing these messages from all of you means so much. We are fighting hard to get past this and I look forward to thanking many of you in person and getting back to playing music with all of you. Love, Music, and God we believe is the true healer. Thank you.” VIC
