GoFundMe Created For Guitarist Juris

Share This:

On June 14, jazz guitarist Vic Juris was diagnosed with metastatic liver cancer. He is currently at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey, receiving treatment. His wife Kate Baker has shared that while Juris does have some medical insurance, it only covers part of his needed treatment, and he will not be able to work for some time.

Gunnar Mossblad and Dave Stryker have started a GoFundMe to help raise funds for Juris while he recovers.

“We are reaching out to our great musical community and friends for donations to help Vic through this terrible ordeal,” their statement on the fundraising page reads. “Most of all…Vic needs our positive loving thoughts and prayers as he travels the difficult road ahead.”

“I want to thank Dave Stryker and Gunnar Mossblad for their years of friendship, and their work in putting all of this together,” says Juris. “And to my colleagues, family and friends, in and out of the music community, Kate and I truly appreciate all of your support, love, and good wishes. Seeing these messages from all of you means so much. We are fighting hard to get past this and I look forward to thanking many of you in person and getting back to playing music with all of you. Love, Music, and God we believe is the true healer.  Thank you.”
