As you know, John has been diagnosed with kidney failure. For three years he has been playing and performing with a hemosplit catheter in his upper chest. Because of it’s proximity to his main artery, heart, and lung it exposes these vital organs to possible infection. Because John is not considered a candidate for a kidney transplant, the pressure to place a fistula in his arm is increasing. His doctor is insisting on it happening this year. As a musician, you can understand how difficult this could make it for him to play.
Several good friends joined together to start a foundation in his name—John Bilezikjian Foundation. This is their way of giving back to John for his contributions as a virtuoso musician, faithful friend, and mentor to those who come to him for the invaluable education only he can give. It will allow him to continue writing and performing whenever he can. Also, his legacy for the future will be his music, written and recorded. His only request of the foundation is to allow him to do a concert and have it recorded—”The Magic of John Bilezikjian”. The John Bilezikjian foundation created this annual fund raising event, a benefit concert, for John to do just that.
