Saxophonist Dayna Stephens (www.daynasound.com) is an internationally renowned saxophonist, composer, bandleader and educator, and a popular face in the East and West Coast Jazz scenes. But he has a rare kidney disease called Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) which affects 20 out of every million people and is waiting on an urgently needed kidney transplant. He faces costly anti-rejection medications at a monthly rate of over $4,000 a month for an indefinite time period.
Musicians on the West and East Coast have come together to perform benefit concerts to help Dayna meet his medical needs. If you would like to contribute please donate here – all donations go through the Jazz Foundation of America. 100% will go directly to Dayna!
