Cal Robbins Needs Your Help
Once upon a time there was a band called Jawbox. They were a huge influence on Damian, who saw them perform dozens of times in high school gyms and rented-out churches. We just found out that Cal Robbins, the newborn son of Jawbox's lead singer, has been diagnosed with a terrible genetic disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy.  DeSoto Records has set up a family fund to help out with their medical bills.  You can donate to it here.  To learn more about SMA, and to find other ways to help, check out the SMA Foundation.

Whether it takes a miracle or science (or both), I wish Cal well.

My 9 yr. old daughter, LINDSEY, also has SMA type II/II! It is SO cool that you guys can help support such a devistating disease that is very common (yet much of the public knows nothing about it!) THANK YOU!
A huge fan...our family blog about Lindsey www.curesma4lindsey.com

I'm Lisa's sister (she commented above), so I am an auntie of Lindsey. Thanks for posting about it- so many people don't know enough about SMA.

Baby Cal- we hope the disease doesn't hit your little body too hard and we hope your parents have supportive friends and family.
