Hi Mike, I have had Crohns for 27 years and have had 4 surgeries in the last 3 years. I wanted to thank you for your music, but mostly for your ongoing efforts to raise money for research. I used to live in Seattle(Ballard) and was able to catch you in concert very early on in your career. I know how difficult it is to carry on a "normal" life and wish you all the best. My CD has kept me out of work for the last three years, which has allowed me to be a stay at home dad, and raise my beautiful son Elijah.
Take care and thanks again, Ike
