On Friday, January 25, saxophonist and Seattle-native Andrew D’Angelo suffered a major seizure while driving in Brooklyn, NY. Tests in the hospital revealed a large tumor in his brain. Andrew will undergo brain surgery at some point in the next few weeks. At this time, it is believed that the tumor is not cancerous, but this will not be confirmed until a biopsy is performed.

Like many musicians, Andrew has no health insurance and needs help to cover the massive medical expenses. You can help out by contributing online through his website.

Andrew has also posted a blog so people can follow his progress.
