Dan Duggan is one of the region’s best known hammered dulcimer players. Fiddle player Howard Blumenthal passes along the news that Dan could use some help with a serious illness
Hello everyone -
As some of you may already know, former national hammered dulcimer champion and amazingly nice guy Dan Duggan has been diagnosed with head and neck cancer. There is a blog on Dan’s situation at http://esperancecancerblog.blogspot.com/
A friend of Dan’s has organized a unique fundraiser to help Dan and his wife Peggy cope with their medical expenses. It would be great to show Dan support from the hammered dulcimer community!
If you’d like to be involved, or can help pass the word along, the fundraiser works like this:
Save all the change you get in the month of March. At the end of the month, count it up, write a check for that amount and mail it to Dan at home:
7456 Hawley Road
Red Creek, NY 13143
The more people we can have involved the better, so feel free to pass the word to anyone else you think might like to help.
Apologies if anyone is receiving this information twice.
