Ezra Meets Michael Franti

January 16, 2015

Last Fall, we sent Ezra, a 22-month old boy living with a rare cancer and autoimmune disorder from Eugene, OR, to see Michael Franti & Spearhead during their One Heart, One SoulWest Coast tour. Little did he know that he’d be the star of the show, dancing up on stage with Michael and the band and spending time backstage as a VIP. Ezra’s father shared his story:

“Ezra had the absolute time of his life! Not to mention my wife and I had an absolutely magical time; I thought Michael would be nice, but he, Sara, Carl, Jay, Hossein and Kappy were all just the nicest, most real people you can get. The experience was unparalleled and more than we could have really hoped for. Ezra shook his little butt as soon as I put him down while we were up on stage, and the crowd cheered- it was an awesome moment.”
