Melton Mustafa battles cancer and health-care costs

Melton Mustafa, our beloved brother, friend, father, grandfather, gifted teacher, spiritual leader who happens to be a world renowned Jazz Trumpeter is in great need of our help now. He is faced with the Fight of his Life but he's not giving up. He's been battling a rare form of cancer that now requires a much more aggressive form of treatment. Unfortunately, insurance companies require a much larger co-payment that must be paid prior to treatment.
Melton Mustafa has quietly fought this cancer while enduring the recession with everyone else. He is a man with great faith in G-d. He is a very humble spirit with an enormous amount of love, compassion and commitment to humanity. He uses his musical gifts and talents to teach students of all ages how to hone their skills and further develop them. He never hesitates to help others raise funds for various needs by performing benefit concerts.If his health permitted him to; I am sure he'd perform his own benefit concert to raise funds for his medical bills. Through G-d's many blessings bestowed upon him, he has always been able to foot his own bills. We are now calling on the community at large....he really needs our help!!! So dear friends, family, supporters, past and present students, mentees, colleagues, fellow musicians....please give whatever you can afford. If you know his great works within the community; you know that our many underserved youth really need him. If you have ever watched his students perform at Florida Memorial University...you know that the students of tomorrow really need him. He's a teacher in so many different areas of life that I'd run out of words trying to express it. Melton Mustafa would never want to cause any hardship or create burdens for others. So as a supporter, student and friend...I am humbly appealing to you all with the loudest mouthpiece I can muster up within me....PLEASE CONTRIBUTE FAST!
You can directly donate here or/and you can buy some of his CD's in the store we have set up on this site. (Even if you already have the CD's.buy it as a gift for a loved one or Jazz enthusiast.)You can post this website on your Facebook page and solicit funds for him as well. If it's the will of our One Creator, we will help our beloved brother win the Fight of his Life. Nothing is too small to give on this site. Whether its $1, $5, $10, $20 $100.....we know that it's filled with Love.

Donate Directly HERE.
Even if you cannot give monetarily, please include him in your prayers. We thank you in advance for your contributions and support. May G-d continue to bless you all and keep your spirits high and keep you healthy.
