Song for Blixa

My friend Sluggo, who is lead guitarist for the San Francisco punk band The Grannies, has a seven-year-old song Blixa who has been fighting leukemia nearly half of his life.

Sluggo recorded this following song for Blixas with a band he calls The Hollow Log Sleepers, (which includes Sluggo's wife and Blixa's mom Laurian Rhodes.)

"Through his short life Blixa has taught our family, our friends and I the power of staying positive in the face of cancer. He hopes to be done with treatment next year, but in the meantime every purchase of this song goes to a health fund set up for Blixa," Sluggo said on his Youtube page.

Check out the video and then go buy the MP3 of it on iTunes to help the family with medical expenses. " After the conclusion of his treatment, the proceeds from this song will all be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society," says Sluggo.

Here's the video:
