John Greene - keyboardist of Bay Area Phish Tribute Chum, provider of "John's Special Tape" (containing the Gamehendge CD-ROM footage), and one of the first users to join the PhishNet - is fighting cancer ... again. His sons Floyd and Orion are raising funds in his honor for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Please consider donating towards their $50K goal to aid scientific research for treatment of these hard-to-treat cancers - you can read more about their story and donate here:
Today, October 6th, is actually JG's birthday - when asked if there was anything special he wanted from his friends, he said all he wants is the Eagles to beat the Panthers this weekend and for his friends to donate to Floyd and Orion's fundraiser! You can follow John's treatment and recovery on his blog here: jgwkia.com.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
