“I am privileged to be a long time friend of Steph’s and have shared so many great times making music together for close to 10 years. It is a bond much like brothers that we have formed and I am dedicated to do what I can to ensure that he and his beautiful wife Sara have the resources to explore all avenues and seek the proper treatment to ensure Steph’s well being. I am reaching out to my artist family to help me to do so… at this event and however many fundraisers it takes.” -Craig McInnis
 
 CRAIGsk
 
Stephen and his family found out of his diagnosis with smoldering myeloma (pre-stage bone marrow cancer) just three weeks after Stephen was married. He went to his primary doctor when persisting pains in his chest concerned his wife. Blood tests led to a bone marrow biopsy which led to Stephen’s diagnosis.
CRAIGskkk

His hematologist suggested they be aggresive to treat what they found since myeloma is not only rare and dangerous but also even more rare in someone Stephen’s age. 
CRAIGskkkk

The conventional treatment success rates that he and his wife found were not acceptable to them, nor did it seem safe; as the doctors suggested it could interefere with Stephen’s and Sara’s hopes to have a family.

The island has an expansive sandy beach adjacent to a jagged coastline where visitors marvel at the raging surf spewing water up into a deep cavern called the “Blow Hole.” Rise early one morning for sunrise at the top of Cadillac Mountain to view the first place the sun touches in the United States. Or, spend the day in the seaside town of Bar Harbor shopping and enjoying the numerous art galleries.

 

Space is limited!  The workshop is sponsored by the Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum, Gallery & School of Art 395 Seabrook Road, Tequesta, FL (561) 748-8737 LighthouseArts.org
