A Benefit Concert for Boy with Bone Cancer

Tonight at the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts, a group of artists have been pooled together for a great cause – to help eleven-year-old Jamir Valentine, who was recently diagnosed with bone cancer. Valentine is the eldest son of performing artist Positive Vibes, who has been working around the clock to put off this benefit concert to cover medical costs for Jamir. The minor and his parents return to Merida in April for a surgery where inevitably his leg will be amputated. Earlier today, News Five caught up with Positive Vibes at the Bliss where rehearsals had just concluded for Jamir’s Benefit Concert; included in the lineup are Nello Player, M.I.K., Unlimited, Consego and Supa G.
