Clark Terry

I'm sure that I'm less informed than those at the sharp end, but I was greatly shocked to read in July's Jazz Journal, the fact, that at the age of 91, Clark Terry has had both legs amputated.
Living the "American Dream", he has generated enormous medical bills and a particular expense not covered by his insurance is the 24/7 attention he requires from professional carers.
Can we who love his music, help him in the same unselfish manner in  which he quietly helped Buck Clayton during the last years of his life  
Let's show the guy he is remembered with affection and gratitude for the music he has given us,
Derrick Cogger.
