On October 8th at The Rivoli in Toronto there will be A Tribute To The Music Of Martha And The Muffins
with proceeds going to the Toronto Western Hospital Foundation in aid of Parkinson’s Disease research.
The evening will feature MatM songs performed by members of The Wilderness of Manitoba, Grand Analog, Damhnait Doyle,
Hill and the Sky Heroes, Maiko Watson, Chris Tait of Chalk Circle, Lorraine Segato of Parachute Club, Mark Gane of Martha and the Muffins,
Red Horse Rebellion, Pyramid Tropic, Retrocity, Raven Shields, producer / percussionist Ray Dillard and more.
Martha Johnson was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2000. Earlier this year, she became the second person in the world to
undertake a two year experimental medical trial using Spinal Cord Stimulation to potentially alleviate the freezing and gait symptoms associated with PD.
The funds raised at the evening’s event will go directly to the ongoing research
programs headed by Dr. Lang and Dr. Fasano at Toronto Western Hospital.
Many people including those living outside of Toronto or out of country not able to attend have expressed the desire to make a donation to Parkinson’s research
at Toronto Western Hospital where Martha is currently taking part in the Spinal Cord Stimulation trial.
We have set up a direct link to Toronto Western Hospital where donations can be securely made here:
Your donation will go directly to the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation to support Parkinson’s disease research at Toronto Western Hospital’s Krembil Neuroscience Centre.
Thank you for all your positive thoughts and good wishes,
Mark and Martha
