Our hearts and thoughts go out to the loved ones of Abigail Henderson, who recently passed away after a long, courageous battle with cancer. Abby and her husband Chris Meck co-founded Midwest Music Foundation in 2008 when she was originally diagnosed. We thank her for her countless contributions to foster the community and create a support system for musicians, and are proud to carry on these goals. Please enjoy this amazing video from Abby and Chris' band Tiny Horse. Donations to Midwest Music Foundation are always appreciated. Michelle Bacon wrote a nice memoriam at The Deli Magazine for Abigail.
