Liver Donor Badly Needed

In an effort to raise awareness to a critical need, a series of concerts are being organized for heritage KNAC FM air personality Tawn Mastrey.

Recently, Tawn's sister, Cara, sent e-mails to several KNAC.COM people describing her sister's dire need for a liver transplant due to an advanced case of Hepatitus C, and a plan to put on a "major concert" to raise needed funds for her sister.

Tawn, known as the "Leather Nun" on the air at KNAC FM in the 80's, continued to work as a high-profile personality at several other U.S. radio stations, and most recently at Sirius Satellite Radio, a job she's had to quit due to her health.

The first, of what will likely be a series of benefit concerts is taking shape in Southern California. Tentatively it's being held at Martini Blues in Huntington Beach on July 28th. Bands said to be on board so far include and Lights Out. Donate Life will reportedly have a rep there. More definate information on this and other events will be forthcoming here, on a website currently under construction at TawnMastreyBenefit.com, and at Cara's MySpace page.

Here is the text of the letter from Tawn's sister, Cara in which she makes a plea for help for our sister-in-metal:

THIS IS A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH.

If Promoter Bill Graham were still alive, I wouldn't have to be writing this letter. He would be taking care of everything. He was like a father to Tawn.

My sister Tawn Mastrey is a veteran in the music industry. She has been a rock/heavy metal radio disc jockey since 1972. (To find out more about her see her profile http down below). She's interviewed almost every rock star, playing their music for decades now, helping launch 100's of musical careers. Tawn has always gone out of her way for others, and is uncomfortable asking anything back for herself. She has been a rock for me in my life and is always there for her family, friends, musicians, animals, and in many occasions, a stranger off the street.

Tawn is now fighting to stay alive. She suffers from Hepatitis C. and is in need of a liver. She has recently quit her job at Sirius radio due to her health.

I have taken upon myself to do a major fundraising charity concert for Tawn's operation and hospital bills. She has no health insurance. The concert will be in conjunction with the American Transplant Foundation. A portion of the proceeds will be going to the American Transplant Foundation to raise awareness as to how important it is to donate body organs.

The headliner has yet been decided.

I am asking for your prayers and for anyone who would like to be involved with the concert, either to perform, or anything else you think would be of help to her, please contact me through my myspace.

A web site will be set up soon for donations. Until then, if anyone would like to donate to her cause, again please contact me.

Tawn has been filming a documentation of her experience dealing with her disease.

Time is of the essence.

Please spread the word... bulletin this out to your friends.

Thank you!
Love you all
Peace

Cara Mastrey
