This is a compilation album of local Guernsey artists (and a couple of bands with strong local connections) who have kindly given us permission to use of their songs, Royalty Free, to help raise funds for www.helpingjonah.com
The initial response we had, when we put the feelers out, was tremendous (hence it being a double CD). The most notable thing about this album is the span of musical "genres" that it covers showcasing that Guernsey has a lot to offer when it comes to musical talent.
Helping Jonah - Helping Others was officially registered in January 2016.
The purpose of the charity is to primarily raise funds for the ongoing medication required for Jonah - for which the States of Guernsey are no longer funding.
Jonah was diagnosed with aggressive Leukaemia in June 2014 aged 15 and subsequently underwent a Bone Marrow Transplant in November 2014. During recovery he was then dealt a further devastating blow in August 2015 when he was diagnosed with a second life threatening illness known as aHUS - an ultra rare blood disease affecting the kidneys and other organs.
The medication Jonah requires costs around £300 k per annum.
We are raising funds to keep Jonah on this medication for as long as he needs it - it is hoped by his medical team that he may be able to stop the treatment after a 12 month course.
100% of proceeds go directly to www.helpingjonah.com
