Last May I informed you about a benefit show for Codebreaker's Steven Hawley, who had suddenly gotten sick and was dealing with crushing medical bills due to having no insurance.
Unfortunately, Hawley's medical issue has not been diagnosed yet and he's still living a painful and restricted life.
Friends who are tired of seeing their friend suffer physical, emotional and financial pain while just trying to figure out whatever is ailing him have once again put together a benefit show to raise money for Hawley's rising medical costs as he seeks to have several expensive tests and procedures done.
The show benefit is tomorrow at MOCT, beginning at 9 p.m.
The lineup for the night includes, but is not limited to:
Frank Straka â€“ (Love Sounds, Lazersweat)
DJ 1L â€“ (KingHellBastard)
DJ Sage "Champagne" Schwarm a.k.a. Global Schwarming â€“ (Codebreaker)
Fortune â€“ (A.part)
DJ Danny Torres
Hawley has also set up an account for anybody who wishes to donate money to the cause and he has this to say to any potential donors:
"I've made this page with an extreme sense of humbleness, reluctance and extreme gratitude to anybody that's able to donate anything to help me cover medical costs for crucial procedures and testing I need to have done to pursue my path to get proper treatment.
"It's been a very tough, overwhelming road for me. As soon as possible, I need funds to get a bronchoscopy, lung biopsies and the applicable testing/work ups related.
"Any donations, large or small, are tremendously appreciated. If you have any questions, feel free to message me on Facebook or email me directly at: email@example.com.
"Thanks for your time and warmest regards, Steven"
You can find the page here if you wish to donate.
