David Oliver, the magician who contracted a rare lung disease from the birds used in his act, received the double lung transplant he has so desperately needed over the weekend. Although this is a great step towards his recovery, it should be remembered that a double lung transplant is not only an incredible physical ordeal but also a tremendously expensive procedure. David can still use the help of his fellow magicians and donations are still be accepted for him by the Central Connecticut Magicians Association via The Do Magic 4 David Oliver blog. There you will also find other ways to support David’s recovery as well as news about and an address to send cards and letters. If you have already contributed and have a purple DO Magic wristband, the blog is asking for a picture featuring the band for a very special (and so far secret) project.
