More Info

My name is Sandra Booker and this is my story...On November 2, 2016, I was diagnosed with papillary urothelial carcinoma (low grade) aka kidney cancer. This was just four days after being cleared for breast cancer after two years of screening. The shock of it all was devastating but I decided to make it a life affirming experience instead of a life diminishing one. 

I was determined this would not stop me from living my life, pursuing my passions (singing, pole dancing, learning the guitar, resuming flying lessons) and being a fully functioning free spirit, but it would be the untimely passing of Miss Sharon Jones of the Dap-Kings, her acceptance of life and death, and all the gifts we get in between that led to me find the courage to face cancer head on, to choose to live with it instead of living in fear of it, and to use my ability as an artist to extend hope and healing to others who belong to the club NO one wants to be a member of. 

Translation: Cancer will not run or ruin my life, will not determine my future and will not stop me from creating the life I was making for myself before its arrival. That said, I didn't want my efforts to serve only me. My answer to that was the Foundation forJazz Musicians Against Cancer (JMAC). 

JMAC is committed to enhancing the quality of life for cancer patients, their family and friends through music and the arts.

These concerts serve as a means of therapy and holistic healing for the mind, body soul and spirit and for the community. Our goal is to produce a series of 12 concerts in 2017. 

I have always believed music is medicine and it can heal us in ways still unimaginable and under appreciated. Please make a contribution of any size. 

Thank you for your donations and for supporting the Foundation for Jazz Musicians Against Cancer.
