In addition, the 'Lätzsch Trombone Festival' will adopt a specific cancer foundation each year for charity. During this year’s Festival, we will raise money to support Carol Jarvis’
'TROMBONES RAISE MONEY FOR CHARITY’ project.
Carol and I both got our lives back after a stem cell transplantation. Watch CAROL'S MOVIE below, visit and read the articles on her web-site and you will understand why we as 'The Lätzsch Trombone Festival' decided to adopt Carol Jarvis' projects during our 2014 festival.
If we can help raise funds through lots of different avenues, then we may be able to help future patients and contribute a tiny bit towards the cure for cancer once and for all.
