Would you please share this and/or donate? This guy has been around the Minneapolis music scene as long as I've been in radio, he's probably touched your life in some way, even if you aren't aware.
I love that all the pics with him and his family are so upbeat and positive, even though things must be real tough right now. Makes me want to help even more.
One day after being launched,a GoFundMe campaignfor a Minnesota musician has generated more than $24,000.
The online fundraiser is for Ed Ackerson and his family. Ackerson, a long time Minneapolis musician who is internationally known as a producer, was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer "just over a year ago," the fundraiser explains.
"He is tough as nails and he has fought back with everything he’s got, but this is a deadly disease with a low survival rate," the campaign explains. "Ed, his wife Ashley and their beautiful 4-year-old daughter Annika all need your help to keep fighting for now and for the future."
