Off Label, a band of mostly Wellesley residents who are medical professionals, has shared a video featuring an ICU heart patient named Marty Phillips who last month joined the band at the Tufts Medical Center employee appreciation BBQ to play some mean sax.
Phillips, who currently relies on machines to pump blood that his heart no longer can, tells WCVB-TV 5 that his lungs are just fine and proved it as you can see in the video below — a video that has compiled about 26,000 views on Off Label’s Facebook page.
Off Label’s Dr. Shira Doron says “It was a magical moment, especially since the song was one chosen by our late band member, cardiac surgeon Mike Davidson. He would have loved it.”
