Cure JM Win Pepsi Refresh Bid

Sorry for being a little late on this one, but I wasn't able to link this tweet;
Jimmy Chamberlin needs YOU: help him get funding to end Juvenile Myositis, a blood disease affecting his son.
from Yamaha Drums last night.  

Anyway, the good news it the charity, Cure JM Foundation, have won their bid for $250,000 from the Pepsi Refresh Project. So good work everybody who voted on behalf of the Chamberlin family and everyone else affected by the condition.

In case, you hadn't heard of this rare and debilitating auto-immune disease before, go to the Cure JM Website, take a look and perhaps show your support.

From Official Yamaha Drums Facebook;
"A sincere "THANK YOU" to the fantastic brotherhood of drummers and musicians for helping us fund JDM research! It is an honour to be part of such a strong community and I am touched to the bottom of my heart with the response that we received from all of you! God Bless all of you!!!!!!!! Jimmy Chamberlin"

  1. Hate to hear that Jimmy's child has an issue such as this...had no idea. Glad the funding went through, hope things will be OK.
