Description

This very Van-Awesome afternoon is a chance for all Dave and Tanya’s friends to come together to show our love and support as they manage Dave’s treatment and recovery.


Many of you know that Dave recently had Pneumoccocal disease with Septicemia. Doctors weren’t sure that he would survive or that his fingers and toes could be saved…….. NOT so awesome!


Thank goodness he fought his way back from that and underwent intensive treatment and rehab where he learnt to walk again. There was great relief that his fingers, in particular, and toes also survived.

However, just when he and Tan thought they could relax they received the news that further tests showed that he had Multiple Myeloma, a type of blood cancer requiring chemotherapy with the aim of progressing to a stem cell transplant to create remission for as long as possible.


As a young devoted husband and Dad of four, Dave’s first thoughts are all about how to provide for his family. As anyone knows, musicians have little backup when challenges like this hit and livelihood is immediately impacted.


Dave has donated his time and played at countless fundraising events over the years. This is our chance to give back and remove some of the financial pressure so that he and Tan and the children can focus on his treatment and recovery.


His musician buddies from far and wide are all donating time to create this very special jam session at his beloved Piano Bar for what will be a great afternoon of fun and music and making it a Van-Awesome afternoon.


There is also a GoFundMe page some of you will have seen on FB is you can’t make the event and we’ll be making other opportunities to offer support, such as an online auction to follow, so any contributions will be gratefully received. You can notify Tara McKinty on taramckinty@me.com or Julie Walter on Lettherebevox@gmail.com



Let’s make this happen!
