Jim will play and sing several jazz standards on guitar and ukulele.
ABOUT THE PERFORMER
Jim Greenfield is a professional guitarist, singer and teacher from Washington, D.C. He has performed in many combinations as a soloist and bandleader in many different genres of music.
The jazz standards that Jim will perform are close to his heart. His mother exposed him to jazz daily from his earliest years. His fondest memories of her live on through these songs.
Undergoing aggressive treatment for oligometastatic prostate cancer in the time of our pandemic has been a challenge, but like so many of us, Jim is happy just to have made it to “vaccineland.” As our beloved AnCan leader Rick likes to say, “onward and upward!”

AnCan is about people helping people, peer-to-peer ….. we are people living with various conditions and situations who help others faced with similar issues. We do this collectively and individually by providing answers, support and navigation to empower people living with serious and chronic conditions to address their worlds. Our non-profit vision is to provide easily accessible, inclusive virtual peer support for every serious disease and condition allowing widespread participation, especially to those geographically, physically or socially disadvantaged.
AnCan currently hosts around 30 monthly video chat virtual meetings for 11 different conditions. We also produce a dozen or so webinars each year. If you are interested in starting a group for your condition, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

About the Host
Rick Davis is a serial social entrepreneur with a background in finance and real estate. Back in 2010, he had the vision to make peer support virtual and bring it to those who needed it, rather than them having to seek it out. First proving the concept for prostate cancer, AnCan started with telephone conference calls, innovated video chat groups back in 2015, and now hosts almost 30 monthly groups for various cancers, multiple sclerosis and more. Rick met The Marsh’s Founder, Stephanie Weisman through providing support and navigation to a mutual friend. He and AnCan are thrilled and honored to collaborate with The Marsh on Solo Arts Heal.
