Living Green Ribbon, and NOTDAW

In Uncategorized on April 15, 2010 at 4:42 pm

Hi gang,

Well, this coming Wednesday  April 21st, my band will be playing at 12:30 at Toronto’s Dundas Square while the participants arrive for the Living Green Ribbon…. as part of”NOTDAW”, or rather National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week.

Note: our time has been c changed: we will play more like 12 noon!

The public are invited to the square to demonstrate their support for the need for organ and tissue donors, learn more about the donation consent registration process, enjoy some entertainment and join the volunteers, wearing green ponchos or carrying “YES” placards, as we come together to form a Living Green Ribbon in the middle of Yonge-Dundas Square.

"Register Yes!"

Myself I’ve been battling the end of some stupid cold I got after going to the AGO.  I hope it is not “the mummies curse”, but it does have me back on antibiotics and the lungs are working less than perfectly, still in all I was riding a horse for THREE hours yesterday, and last week sang gigs on 6 out of 7 nights, only to be left feeling vocally stronger by Sunday. Far out. That’s the tricky part of immuno suppression: sure, it is the most effective way to try &  prevent rejection, but it also opens you up to all sort of infections, viral, etc.  You can see how a certain amount of anxiety is attached to post transplant management, though I would not trade it and pray it lasts.

For NOTDAW, the CBC will also be airing the Lickin’ Good Fried concert from November (my one year lungiversary party). There will be plenty of music, interspersed with interview snippets about our music, our lives, & of course transplant. Check that out on CANADA LIVE, CBC Radio 2, Friday April 23rd…. around 7pm, depending on what part of the country you are in.
