    I'm writing to let every TPIN'er know about a special benefit concert that I'm participating in for a very special friend.

    A great friend and mentor on the Trumpet, Karen Antonio-Muenzinger, is very ill from cancer. She has been out of the professional circuit here in Boston and really needs our help.We're holding a concert in her honor on Friday, September 10th. For Full Details please go to www.innovatabrass.com or email me for any details.Since we are all a band of trumpeters in this world I know that most of you will not be able to attend. Therefore please keep Karen in your prayers or contact me at [email protected] directly if you'd like to help.

    Can you give us some more info on this situation. Was she playing free lancing in Boston? Does she not have health insurance? What is going on?

    My best to her!

    Sure...

    She does have health insurance, although it is minimal coverage and her upcoming surgery is going to be very costly.

    She really needs help because that she hasn't been able to work her full schedule because of the stomach cancer. Her energy is zapped, her gigs have been virtually cancelled because of her lack of energy and the pain she is in. I know that if I couldn't gig or work a day job that I'd be in serious financial trouble.

    I can go more in detail privately if you'd like.

    Thanks for all of your emails and prayers. Times like these make me very thankful to have such a wonderful playing community to lean on.

    Trent

    No more details are needed. I am just glad to hear that she has -some- form of health insurance. If she didn't that would be an even bigger problem. Again my best to her!
