To see Matt Ward enjoying a microbrew and casual conversation under the Baldacchino Gypsy Bar’s tent on Saturday night, you might not guess he was fighting for his life less than an hour before.

Sarah Taurchini aptly describes her visit to the Fringe Festival’s Baldacchino Gypsy Tent Bar tent on Saturday afternoon as “a social call.”
Jason is nursing a carbonated beverage when I approach him. A light rain is starting to fall, but it hasn’t dampened his spirits. “I feel really good,” he says. “We had a nice turnout tonight, and people really seem to like it.”
