“Etta has a terminal illness. She’s in the final stages of leukemia. She has also been diagnosed with dementia and Hepatitis C. She’s in a home right now and mostly sleeps. She is under the care of a live-in doctor from Riverside Community Hospital and two others who have placed her on oxygen. Her husband is with her 24 hours a day, and her sons visit regularly. We’re all very sad. We’re just waiting.” – Lupe De Leon, James’ Manager of 30 years
Blue Sky Sends all our deepest love to James + her family. We are hoping to do tribute album with some of our artists + friends. Please email meagan@blueskyandhardrock if you’re interested in contributing your musical talents to the project.
If you leave a comment on this thread, we intend to use it in the liner notes of the CD unless you specify otherwise.
Proceeds from the album will go directly to the James family + to Light the Night in support of others with Leukemia.
