11-time Grammy winning saxophonist Michael Brecker has been diagnosed with MDS (myelodysplastic syndrome) and it's critical that he has a bone marrow or blood stem cell transplant. The initial search for a donor, including Michaels siblings and children, has not resulted in a suitable match. In tribute to Michael, M-Audio will pay for the testing of as many people as possible at any National Marrow Donor Program center. Please read on for more information and specific details about getting tested. You will be signing up to save the life of anyone needing a transplant due to leukemia, lymphoma, MDS, sickle cell anemia, aplastic anemia and more.

I only spent one day with him, but I consider him a friend. He is probably the most brilliant soloist alive today. I cannot help, as I am on immunosuppressant drugs myself for my own health crisis. For those of you who think you do not know him, I assure you that you have heard his playing all of your life, and just don't know it. Michael IS modern saxophone. The man is a genius, and a legend. I sincerely hope he gets the help he needs. Get well, Mike.
