Cardiac Rehabbers Support Fund The NIU Steel Drum Band has agreed to do a benefit concert for Cardiac Rehabbers at our church on April 19th, 2015 at 3:00 pm. While there is no cost involved for the band, there is a transportation cost for getting the bank members and their instruments to the church. This is due to insurance and liability laws. Since 100% of our contributions are used to pay for rehab sessions, we have no money to cover transportation costs. We would appreciate any donations for this. Checks or donations can be made out to Cardiac Rehabbers support fund in care of Alberta Dequin 808 Normal Road, DeKalb 60115.
