A Benefit for Brandi. A concert in her honor, spread your love!

As some of you have read in earlier posts a good friend of mine and my sister’s bestie is in a battle with Cancer.  The doctors original thought was she has ovarian cancer.  She had a full hysterectomy last week to rid her body of the Ovarian Cancer and during the surgery found a tumor the size of her stomach and spots throughout her body, one being on her pancreas which has brought up the possibility of it being Pancreatic cancer.  They are awaiting the results of the biopsy, which should be in later this week and will know for sure what it is, but for now they are sticking with Ovarian Cancer.  She will be starting Chemo in just a few weeks.  She is 29 years old and the sweetest girl you will ever know.  She will light up a room when she walks in with her huge smile and laugh, she is hilarious, she is loving, she is caring and just all around a great girl and I am proud to say she is my friend.  She is loved by so many around our city and Sunday 3rd and Lindsley is throwing a benefit concert in her honor.   The benefit concert has a huge list of performers and most likely more artists will be added seeing that on fb people are adding to the comments that they or others want to perform.  The current list of artists that will be playing the benefit:  Dave Pahanish and The Rust Belt ,Tom Bukovak, Marcel, Jessica Andrews, Kristen Lee, Keith Anderson, Josh Hoge, Andy Davis, Rick Huckaby, The Wooten Brothers, Old Union, Johnny Neel, Chris Bledsoe, Randy Boen, Jack Pearson, and Very Special Guests…..

So if you are reading this and live in Nashville get your tooshie to 3rd & Lindsley Sunday at 4:00!
