In fall 2012, George Winston’s 40-year career of selling 15 million albums came to an abrupt and absolute life-alternating halt. During a Sept. 12 Idaho performance, Winston barely made it through the show, laying down on his dressing room floor and then being rushed to the emergency room.

Blood tests showed a dangerous loss of healthy blood cells, a textbook “myelodysplastic syndrome” and led to his transfer to the City of Hope Cancer Hospital in Duarte, California.
