Is EMatters or Knudsen of Danish EPUnLtd organizing this event ? Maybe it can be filmed and later sold on BlueRay video to fans who want to spend their money on such materials.

Lets just hope that EPE help Myrna financially with her medical bills, after all the years she's worked to earn them money....

I hope the best for Myrna, but it shows that the most people in the USA don't have a normal insurance to pay their medical bills...that's a shame..! Get well Myrna !

I have been praying for Myrna's return to good health and have sent her numerous cards. It is wonderful that there is going to be a benefit concert for Myrna but I would never have anything to do with an event that Sonny West was involved with in any way. I will find another way to donate to Myrna's medical expenses. God Bless you Myrna.

Yes I agree with you Judy but what's the chances of that happening, they don't do much for nothing do they? Myrna was hospitalised here in the UK for three weeks before she got home and I think other sources got her home not EPE. We are fortunate in the UK with our NHS service, even though at times we knock it. Great idea Elvis Unlimited and good luck with the ticket sales. How nice to see the guests above supporting the cause, for nothing I hope : ) All the more for Myrna's medical bills then. I'm sure if Elvis knew of this he'd be helping her too and wanting nothing in return for it other than for her recovery which is what we all want. Get well Myrna we love you.

Lets get over the Sonny West thing, Geez it was over 30 years ago. He is doing a good thing here. Elvis certainly was no saint and Sonny was no better or worse a person.
