"Inundated" with well wishes from those he's crossed paths with over the years, world-renowned bartender Murray Stenson says the outpouring of support he's received in the past couple of days has been phenomenal.

"It's just been humbling how many people have contacted me," says Stenson, who's currently on leave from Canon while he deals with a heart ailment.

As for his precise medical condition, Stenson provides the following update:

"I went in for an interior photograph of my heart yesterday, which went smooth as silk. At some point in the near future, they're going to be scheduling a heart valve operation."

Since Stenson has no insurance, an international fundraising drive has gotten underway to raise money to help him defray what are sure to be significant medical costs. Donations can be made directly at MurrayAid.org, and there are a series of local bar socials scheduled over the next couple of weeks where the funds you fork over to pour liquor down your throat will benefit Murr the Blur as well, with Aliuqet, Bastille and Barrio recently joining the Zig Zag, Canon and Paratii as event hosts. Check in frequently at MurrayAid.org for an updated schedule.
