A friend's cancer has come out of remission. She has tumors in her pituitary, the lymph node in her thyroid, and in each breast. She's trying to find some bands to play for a benefit that's to help set up a trust fund for her 5 year old daughter. She's a long-time DFW native (was on BBSes back in the day).
Her name is Kathryn Foster, and:

Flier will be up soon! please read my plea
I'm in need for 2 more bands for a show at Rockstar Sports bar in Ft. Worth.
I'm sick again and have currently tumors growning in my pituitary gland, my lymphnode in my thyroid bed where cancer was before, and a mass in each breast. so my BEAUTIFUL friends have gotten together to help me help my family. The theory is by the medical world is that the radiation I just had 4 weeks ago is showing signs of tumors shrinking. However, that being said, I have to go back to see the status, they believe I'm exhibiting symptoms of Lymphoma Leukemia..
I also have this AMAZING beautiful 5 year old child who happens to have Autism. The wonderful people at ROckstar bar have offered on their own doing to do a benefit show for me. as I do need assistance with medical bills, the majority of the money I would like to donate is to setup a trust fund for my daughter, Chloe. and the remaining to donate to American Cancer Society.
See, 2 years ago, I was told I was in remission, now I've got tumors attacking all my glands and causing insane side effects. I'm trying to maintain a normal life, while holding a full time job and taking care of my daughter. With that being said. I'm looking for 2 more bands to play this show if you could. Here is the set list as it stands.
