Glenn Alexander wrote "Here's To Jay" in honor of his nephew who died from fibrolamellar at only 20 years old. The song is not only available at CD Baby, but also now on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon. Links to the above sources appear here under Jay’s photo.

Many thanks to each organizer of these events. Some brought in big donations, like $20,000; the total for the coffee socials was almost $30,000. Others brought in several hundred. Whichever the dollar amount, the commitment to raise monies for FCF is most appreciated.
