If you’re reading this, it is probably because Steve Davis has touched your life in some way. Whether he has played in a band with you, gave you a hug when you needed one, a smile from across a crowded room, or maybe you even partied with the man once or twice, the feeling you have right now is probably one of joy, reverence, and love.

Steve Davis is a friend, a son, a father, a boyfriend, a brother, a bassist, an artist, and most importantly, a human being. He’s also dying of liver cancer.

Let that sink in.

Steve recently found out that the Hepatitis C he has been living with, dealing with, and taking care of for over three decades has progressed into cancer and he is dying. One doctor gave him anywhere from a month or two to a year, but as more information comes in the prognosis continues to change, but one part of the prognosis will not change. Steve has liver cancer and it is terminal.

What you can do to help is donate here. Steve has effectively retired from working as his care is now a full-time job. There is treatment available that can help prolong Steve’s life, but it is expensive. If you know Steve at all, you know he has led a, how shall we say, spartan lifestyle for many, many years and while he does not need a lot to keep the lights on and food in his belly (and good food at that…Steve has learned that a plant-based diet and lots of juicing will help increase his time here with the rest of us), but the treatments are expensive. The first chemotherapy treatment, for example, is almost $5400 and that doesn’t include the fees for the doctor and anesthesiologist.

What you also need to know is that Steve is facing this new twist to his life with the grace and compassion you would probably expect him to have. His eyes are shining bright and he will quickly point out that he is very lucky. He is not in any pain at the present time and aside from the vast amount of energy he is expending to fight his cancer, he is at peace. He looks forward to making more music and painting more during the time he has left, and he is living each day to the fullest.

Steve doesn’t want to you ruin your day with this news. What he does want is to go out with dignity, and as much as it is possible, on his own terms.

Together, we can help him do this. Here’s how…34449586_1542041257690165_r.jpeg
With each donation, Steve can tackle one of the myriad issues that stand between him and a relatively healthy and dignified life. He is in the process of obtaining disability, which will be a huge help but, in the meantime, he needs all of our help to make ends meet. Our goal is to raise $25,000 through this go.fund.me account and add additional help for Steve through a benefit show in Phoenix, Arizona as well as opportunities through his record label, Slope Records. We are all working together to help Steve and invite you to do the same with a donation today.

Thomas Lopez founder of Slope Records is running my GFM campaign. So far the dough that has been raised is helping immensely! Thankyou! My faith is in the T & Alkaline to handle my terminal diagnosis. Are we not all terminal? I've been able to maintain my regimen on the road. That means keeping my supplements of fats/proteins/super greens constantly going. Keep pounding electrolytes, pharmaceutical Vit C. Use my blender daily, and also eat well out here. Speaking of which, my appetite came back full force last week! Healing! The first week to ten days out I maintained a strict plant based diet and dropped more than ten pounds. Becoming weak. On the fly I temporarily introduced a little meat back in. No reds. Between frigid NE temps and, rapid weight loss, I followed one of my Lieutenant's suggestions. She said it's critical I keep warm, especially upper torso. I also have Music Cares, who has taken care of all my bills since late September. That runs out in February. I'm beyond grateful for the help they provided me,, it brought me to tears. I'm also on disability which covers quite a bit of my monthly. I've got medical for the Western Crew. Hitting Texas now, and the slightly warmer temps are serving me well. I want to thank ya'll for every single generous donation, call, click, chat, share, like, H & K. Heart and flower & every convo. Thankyou for Love Bomb, my wonderful gifted friends who did their own fundraisers, the San Antonio Crew, see you in two wakeups! My Roll Call Gang, two words: Thank You! It's you guys who are providing me the energy/strength, as our fun time goes from town to town! It's important to me that you know, from bumper to bumper, every single person on this bus is providing me with the same energy/strength/healing! My wonderful son Aries has ownership of our merch, blessed more than I have words that he's with me. My mother, my brother and, my best girl...
THANK YOU!


I'M A HIGH SOUL PRIZE FIGHTER!

First and foremost, we want to thank everyone who has contributed so far to this great cause. Stevie D is an incredibly humble and loving guy, as you know, and the outpouring of help has been amazing. We are excited to be announcing a benefit show soon at the Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix with some of Stevie's friends playing in his honor, as well as an appearance by his current band. For this night, we will rename them, "The Stevie D Band" and fun will definitely be had, so keep an eye out for more information about a Wednesday, December 19th happening in Downtown Phoenix.
