A dear friend of ours, legendary classic alternative dj STEVE WEST , is a TWO time cancer survivor -- thanks to positivity + "weird science" at UC San Diego's Moores Cancer Center.

Moving to town (from across the pond) when he was "only a lad," this legenday figure holds a special place in San Diego's heart -- after all, he introduced us to Oingo Boingo, U2, The Cure, The Smiths, + Depeche Mode.

First diagnosed in 2004  (and again THIS YEAR with a SECOND cancer,) our warrior friend has fought an honorable battle (while working parttime,) BUT, has accumulated a "grey matter"-blowing amount of medical bills in the process...

Being as sensitive to his "private life" as possible, we can assure you that he has given this campaign his blessing -- + any contribution would be received with love and gratitude.

Love, San Diego Radio For Steve

OK guys it’s been a while but time to ramp things up. Steve isn't out of the woods yet. Looks as though surgery is inevitable. All this time trying alternative methods has left Steve with diminished funds. We all know medical costs are through the roof and can destroy a person financially. As well as prohibit you from getting the appropriate treatments and medicines due to the astronomical cost associated with pharma and their profits. That's where we come in!! If everyone one who is friends with Steve or just appreciates all his years of giving us music and knowledge donated as little as $10.00 it would keep him afloat with his medical costs. So, I challenge you all to donate and to ask your friends to donate as well. He is truly worthy of our support and I know he is humbled and appreciates everything everyone has done so far to help him fight this battle against yet another cancer. #FUKCANCER

So things are looking good and it seems Steve will be going under the knife on Halloween... So keep him in your thoughts and prayers and if you have it in your heart make another donation .. $5.00 bucks goes a long when when we all contribute. Keep you all posted 2 more Sundays with the greatest DJ and the best music..

Soooo.. seems there was a hiccup and the surgery has been postponed for at least 30 days. Luckily that gives us more time to keep sharing and donating even if its just 5 bucks.. it all adds up and this procedure is already adding up for Steve and it hasn't even happened yet.
I will share that I am working on a benefit concert with some of Steve's friends performing and a silent auction. Stay tune for details once the date is confirmed. Again thanks for the support he greatly appreciates it. Also get ready to listen to Steve's tribute to Tom Petty this weekend on Legends of Alternative Sunday morning.
Mahalo,

Tuesday Oct 2nd is "D" day for Steve. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. He will need all the support we can muster up. If you can make a small contribution please do so. The cost of this surgery will cost him well over the amount of the money we are trying to raise through this Go Fund Me. We all know our health care system is the pits. The massive amount of out of pocket costs can throw a person into bankruptcy, we are hoping this wont be the case for Steve with the help of his loyal fans and listeners. Thank you all for your support so far and when I have news after the surgery I will be sure to update you all.
Mahalo, Sabrina

Wish you all the strength and hope to fight this awful disease. My mom currently has brain cancer (same kind Senator John McCain had). It is so hard to fight this but there is no choice but to keep fighting this! Our prayers are with you Steve! Hang in there!
