MS updates!!!

Stem Cell Bone Marrow Transplant for my wife Allison Edwards

Ok, so here we go. We have let the proverbial cat out of the bag this week and brought our friends, family and folks we know from my music world up to speed on the status of Allison's MS.  I have been a fan of social media since the early 90's message boards.  I have some friends whom I have never met in real life but have had lasting relationships for decades through this virtual reality we call the internet.  I have shared every aspect of my music career and as well have let you in on what is happening in my personal life (within reason).  During this next year my family and I will be going through something brand new for us.  The Stem Cell Bone Marrow transplant that my wife is about to undergo brings a lot of fear and hope both in waves depending on the hour.  It is important for me to clear a lot of my schedule from touring during this time.  This is tough as the new record is being received very well and the band is sounding pretty darn good I must admit.  However, I will still be picking up as many shows as is possible but the focus right now is the treatment and well being of my wife.  


So here we go... Welcome aboard and feel free to comment and interact.

I am so so excited for Allison, and for your whole family. As a HSCT warrior myself, I know what you all will be going through this next year, but trust me when I say that the end result is so worth it. I haven't met you in person yet Ken, but I hope that we can rectify that before the big day. I am here for you guys day or night to answer any questions that you may have, and am cheering very loudly on the sidelines for Allison.
Ken, Allison, and 'the girls'. My thoughts and prayers are with you so many times during the day. I 'babysat' you buddy so we go back a long time and I have loved you for a long time. I will be interested in following the course of Allison's treatment and outcomes. Our family 'curse' has been treated as if it were MS for many years. But, it is not. However, I firmly believe in medical research and if Allison is helped by her treatment, who knows what lies down the road for Hereditary Spastic Ataxia. Hugs my dear Cousin and family. It may not be much, but, if I can help, give me a shout! LU, especially Ken, up in Nan's apple tree. Yup. Got the photographic proof! Ken, please keep me in the loop. I love all of so much! XO
