"Who would ever think that I would be writing these words, let alone telling the tale that is unfolding.
Steven, Stevie, Max, Steven Max… Steven Max Stern. The little boy who dreamed to create music since childhood, who never gave up on this hobby despite the trials and tribulations we ALL face in life, on Sunday the 9th of April, 2017, recorded “Jah Light” with The Wailers, one of the many songs he has written over time, this one 25 years ago, inspired by one of his favorite bands, Bob Marley and The Wailers.
Like ‘the little engine that could’, traveling from South Africa, to Israel, to Wisconsin, to New York, to Indiana, to New Orleans, to Virginia, to Kansas, to California, to Israel, to Miami and many places in between… He has never given up the fight.
In November 2014, Steven was diagnosed with advanced stage 4 lung cancer. This is no longer a secret. He talks about it publicly, has a blog, has written an online book, presented to a class at a University, jokes about it, cries about it, and deals with it 24 hours a day. But mostly, tries to ignore it and the ‘job’ associated with it, so he can live life as fully as possible.
That is what this is all about. The miracle of embracing life, the gift we’ve been given, despite all circumstances and odds. To take what we have been given and make the best of it."
