Mark Miyoshi fund raising update

A huge thank you goes out to all of you from the taiko community and beyond that have contributed to Mark’s fundraising drive. As of 12/21/12 we have raised $12,857 to help Mark cover his medical bills. I spoke with Mark recently and he sounded good. He is continuing with physical therapy and will be starting to make taiko again soon. His therapist thought that it would be good for his recovery to start working on taiko again. The bad news is that he has continued to have mini strokes and his doctors have not been able to determine what is causing them. He is going to need further test and will have to see a neurologist to try to get a diagnosis.

We’ll be keeping the fundraising post up until the first of the year and will be continuing to raise funds for Mark given the continued uncertainty of his condition and the upcoming tests that he will need.

Thank you for your help and for your support of one of our great cultural treasures in the taiko community.
Peace,
Shoji Kameda
