Traveler's John Miller Ill - in Need of Help

John Miller

Word has reached us that John Miller, guitar player with the Travelers has been diagnosed with tongue cancer.  John has played with J.D. Crowe, Lonesome River Band, Charlie Sizemore, Valerie Smith and other bands.  He also owns and operates a recording studio and works as a luthier.  As. sadly, so often happens with musicians, John is in need of help from our generous bluegrass community. John begins chemo therapy and radiation treatment soon. Doctors are optimistic about his recovery, but, as might be expected, the future of his voice is problematic. 

Contributions may be sent in his name (be sure to place his name in the memo part of your check) to:

Eastman Strings has donated an e10D Dreadnaught Guitar to be randomly chosen at the Eastman IBMA booth on Saturday, September 28 in Raleigh, NC. You need not be present to win.

Writer/songwriter David Morris has also told me that Tim Finch, Eastman rep, will shave Dave's head at IBMA if any donor gives or raises $500. Let's make sure Dave has his chance at baldness.
