Mrs. Yancey Needs Your Help

September 18, 2008

Maureen Yancey (Dilla’s Mother)┬áis in need of your help. Here’s a message from House Shoes explaining the situation:

ATTENTION…. TO ALL HIP HOP BLOGS AND SUPPORTERS OF MADUKES
DONATE TODAY

Maureen Yancey gave birth to one of the greatest producers of our generation, James Yancey aka Dilla. She suffers from Lupus, the same disease which claimed the life of her child. Lupus is an auto-immune disease which results in cell and tissue damage and a host of related medical issues.

Mrs. Yancey is currently struggling to pay for her own medical bills and to keep her household running after the loss of one of her children. She reached out to us in an attempt to contact the fans that were supporters of her son & his music. Please consider donating to her today.

Please note: this is NOT a tax-deductible donation, and this is in no way related to the Dilla Foundation or the estate of James Yancey. There are no administration fees related to your donation. You will be donating directly to Mrs. Yancey.

Thank you!

GO TO MYSPACE.COM/THEGIANTPEACH AND CLICK ON THE DONATE BUTTON.

A LOT OF YALL TALK THE TALK.

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YALL WALK THE WALK.

THANK YOU.
