Nicky Sorbelli & Family go on Miami, Key West, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, NEPA local news ABC TV affiliates asking the nation for FREE bone marrow donor testing at www.BeTheMatch.org

 
10 yr old son, cancer battler & inspirational hero Nicky Sorbelli & his family father Wayne, mother Jamie & sister Leela go on local news TV in Miami, Key West, Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, NEPA (ABC TV affiliates) asking the nation for FREE bone marrow donor testing at www.BeTheMatch.org  

As most of you reading this know, my son Nicky Sorbelli has been fighting T-Cell Lympblastic Lymphoma since his diagnosis in May 2015 – his cancer became chemo resistant in late November so they had to switch his treatment to a harder chemo and a bone marrow transplant.

We need to start looking for a bone marrow transplant match for Nicky now ASAP because the results can take up to two weeks to get a potential donor’s results back. You can get a free home mouth swab test kit! https://join.bethematch.org/Nicky%20Sorbelli/   **

** Free mouth swab test to register & if you are a match its just a shot & blood draw to actually donate for most transplants! 

Monetary donation can be made directly to Nicky & his family at First State Bank of the Floria Keys: payable to Sorbelli. Memo Nicky Sorbelli donation fund (2487)

Sorbelli family got a Thanksgiving miracle when they got to leave the Hospital & come back home to Key West because his blood counts were holding up so well & fighting so strong- and maybe see Robert Plant on Duval St?

Miracle Blues From Outer Space” TODAY’S soundtrack for Nicky Sorbelli’s EPIC ASS KICKING of his blood cancer! The Sorbelli family got a holiday miracle yesterday when after Nicky’s chemotherapy we got to leave the Miami Children’s Hospital & come back home because his blood counts were holding up so well & fighting so strong!!! Dec 14th is his next chemo infusion so a little break is just amazing for him and us right now!

It’s a feeling I can’t explain – I’m so happy! There aren’t any words for the feelings that accompany getting out of the hospital and chemotherapy UNEXPECTEDLY the day before Thanksgivibg! It’s a true holiday miracle and we are very very thankful – it’s perfect! 

As we drive down US1 heading back home – I am getting calls and texts and emails from my music shop in Key West that there was a very special person hanging out and celebrating the holiday on Duval street Key West – a one and only ROBERT PLANT. Yep that is special and he is probably cool to party with and hang with – but all I can say – and I say with much humility and respect – “MOVE OVER ROBERT PLANT NICKY SORBELLI is coming back to town!!” Robert you & Santa Clause may have to wait in line for the attention this year if Nicky is back in town because he’s the coolest of the cool! 

And Robert his hair was as EPIC as yours back in the day. He’s Lion at heart – a Golden Child God.

Thank you to everyone who made NEPA Helping Nicky Sorbelli such a huge success last spring. Nicky continues to receive chemotherapy and has had frequent hospitalizations in the past months, necessitating the Sorbelli family to relocate temporarily to be closer to the hospital. As the Sorbelli family’s need is ongoing, NEPA is once again coming together for a benefit to help our friends. There is a killer line up of bands, as well as food, drinks, raffles and some surprises as well!!

Aside from the donations and raffle items that all my friends are throwing in, I will be giving up many of my personal items to put into the raffle – like a bunch of music collectibles & autographs & records, as well as a few of my guitars. An all black USA Strat, a vintage cherry Dean Gran Sport, a few work horse guitars like my Reverend Charger HBFM and Nylon string guitar, one of my Luna ukuleles and more!

The schedule for the bands is set:

Pink Floyd Comfortably Numb (first 1st solo) Island Guitar Store Key West Music Lesson Studios

Polishing my David Gilmour Skills on USA Fender Stratocaster 2011 HSS (which stands for humbucker – single coil – single coil pick up configuration). I love to use the whammy bar on a guitar that actually can stay in tune when using the tremolo like it was intended to be used. I tuned up and quickly laid down some Pink Floyd comfortably numb 1st solo (it’s so damn epic) just as an excuse to go to town on the whammy bar! I love a good strat!
