Donate to the Cheb i Sabbah Cancer Treatment Fund

Musical pioneer Cheb i Sabbah was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer.  He was advised that the cancer was spreading to his liver and left lung and that time was not on his side.    Like many Americans, “Chebiji” – as he is affectionately known – does not have health insurance.  Due to his weak health condition, Chebiji found himself having to cancel live shows, meaning his income stream has come to a complete halt, with mounting medical bills and future medical costs ahead.

 Upon learning of his condition, a few close friends and artists have come together to rally around Chebiji and assist him with his fight.  Devastated by the news and outraged that an artist of Chebiji’s caliber cannot afford to care for himself and receive the proper urgent medical treatment needed, we have set up a fund to hSabbah’s influence on the global electronic music and DJ scene cannot be over estimated. He has shown two entire generations that classical world traditions can blend beautifully and respectfully with DJ Culture.  Thousands have experienced his music and artistic vision through his many albums and on his dance floors – whether in Goa, Essaouira, Moscow or at Nickie’s, where he ran an eighteen year San Francisco weekly residence, we know what a beautiful gift Chebiji has been to the world at large. This is our opportunity to give something back to Cheb i Sabbah in his time of need

We have identified a cancer clinic in Germany that is ideally suited for Chebiji’s condition and age.  We estimate a treatment and recovery period of one year during which time Chebiji will be unable to work.  Our projected costs for his treatment and household expenses during the treatment and recovery period is $45,000. We hope to raise $20,000 through private donations, benefit shows and benefit albums/remix albums.  We turn to you, the friends and fans to help us raise another $25,000.

We ask all of Chebij’s friends and fans to help spread the word about his condition via all social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook).
