For the last 2 years Lynden David Hall has been battling a rare form of cancer. He is suffering from Hodgkin's Lymphoma disease. It is a form of cancer that mainly affects young people in their 20's and around 1400 people are diagnosed in then UK every year. It is a disease of the Lymphatic system.

Lyndan David HallThe Lymphatic system is a complex system of lymph organs (such as tonsils and bone marrow) and lymph nodes connected by a network of lymphatic vessels. This system is part of the body's natural defence against infection. Hodgkin's Lymphoma usually affects groups of lymph nodes in one area of the body such as the neck or armpit.

In January this year Lynden attended Hammersmith hospital for a Stem Cell transplant. The operation has resulted in him being hospitalised ever since. For nine months he has been in intensive care fighting for his life. His spirit has never been broken though and despite all his problems he has asked if we can help him raise money for fellow sufferers.

On Tuesday 15th November at the Jazz Café in London friends of Lynden will be gathering to perform in his honour. Confirmed artists include:

Miss Dynamite, Omar, Beverly Knight, Terri Walker, Shola Ama, Don E & Roachford + djs Diggz & Matt White. We are hoping that the event will be televised or broadcast in order to raise the awareness of this serious condition.

Tickets are £22.50 and will be available from from Monday 3rd October. If you would like to donate more there will be an opportunity for people to do so on the night. Everyone involved in organising this event has provided their services for free enabling us to donate 100% of the proceeds to various charities of Lyndens' choice including the Afro Caribbean Leukaemia Trust.

On behalf of Lynden and his family Random Records would like to thank you all for your understanding and support in what is a very difficult time.
