What happens when an uninsured musician falls ill?

Jim Almo

June 10, 2013

Musician David Lamb, of Brown Bird, is one of the nicest people you could meet. He and MorganEve Swain, collectively known as Brown Bird, were two weeks into a tour when Lamb went to the emergency room in Houston, Texas. He was admitted with a diagnosis of severe anemia, and a further diagnosis that has yet to be determined.

As a musician, Lamb has no health insurance, and now is unemployed since he cannot be on tour. With medical expenses accruing quickly, Brown Bird turned to their friends and family to ask for help. What happened next exemplifies the good in humanity, and how we can help each other, even with little things.
