Freddie Hubbard passed away on December 29, 2008.

Today I want to post about Freddie and the Jazz Foundation of America.

Despite his brilliant achievement,he did not have his health insurance.

For years he was covered by his wife’s health insurance plan.

In 2002 he suffered congestive heart failure.

Unfortunately after they lost their coverageshe lost,she lost her job.

Finally they spent all their savings on medical bills.

Freddie Hubbard came to the Jazz Foundation of America for help in 2002.

When he had congestive heart failure and couldn’t work, the Jazz Foundation paid his mortgage for several months and saved his home.

Also his funeral was solemnly held by the Jazz Foundation of America.

Here is Freddie Hubbard plays “Sky Dive”.
