Here's the latest on Tawn Mastrey's condition from her sister Cara:

This morning [yesterday] Tawn was rushed to the intensive care unit, and never made it to the University hospital. She had a high fever, and was in pain.

She had an ecoli infection in her blood! But is NOW out of the worst of it!!!! Antibiotics are taking over, effectively.

Tawn will be staying in the intensive care unit at Abbott Medical center, and will be moved directly to the Liver Transplant Center U of M, when Dr's feel it is safe to move her and that the infection is completely clear.

Her surgeons want Tawn near by them so that they can keep an eye on her, and hopefully wait for the liver while in the transplant center.

Tawn is out of the worst of it now and is stabilized. She's very confused due to the ammonia levels, but the levels are low. so that's GOOD. When she came to tonight, she was concerned that the nurses were after her sisters to prick us with needles and wanted to protect us.

Later Tawn was trying to get out of bed and told her nurses that she's ok now and was ready to go. She asked where her shoes were because she was going to go dancing. The nurses freaked out, as Tawn was hooked up to a bunch of machines. She also told me she wasn't going to be able to play football today. She was having a very bad trip. Her mind will be much more aware tomorrow.

Thank you all for your prayers. Tawn needed them very much today, as her life was on very thin ice.

Tawn is resting comfortably and our mother is near by her side.

Now, a recap of the Tawn MAstrey Benefit concert at Martini Blues in Southern California:

Members of Dio, Great White and XYZ came out to rock with local Tribute bands Metal Knights, Masters of Reality and Lights Out to help raise much needed money for radio legend Tawn Mastrey at Martini Blues in Huntington Beach this past weekend.

Just a few months ago it was announced that hard rock radio legend Tawn Mastrey had to quit her job at Sirius Satellite Radio due to health issues. Tawn is suffering from Hepatitis C and is in need of a life saving liver transplant. Having found herself in the position of not having any health insurance, major Rockers from all over are coming to her aid to help raise the needed funds so that she can have this life saving transplant.

This past Saturday night, July 28th at Martini Blues in Huntington Beach a "Tribute for Tawn" took place with local metal tribute greats Metal Knights headlining a sold out show that included Masters of Reality and Lights Out as well as an all star jam at the end of the night that included Craig Goldy and Simon Wright from Dio, Tony Montana from Great White and Terry Ilous from Xyz. The show was an overwhelming success in that 100% of the door proceeds from the sold out event went to the Tawn Mastrey Supplemental Needs Trust as well as a Silent Auction and Raffle which brought in about an additional $1000 in cash for items such as a Bass signed by all members of Dio, including Ronnie James Dio and Rudy Sarzo.

The night was hosted by KNAC.COM on-air personality Diana Deville who got the crowd fired up between sets and informed them of how each and everyone could become an organ donor.

Donate Life America provided "DONATE LIFE" Flouresent green wrist bands and dog tags and donations were taken for Donate life from the sale of these items to help spread awareness and to help people learn how to become an organ donor. Please visit www.donatelife.net for more info.

The shows headliners Metal Knights is fronted by Robbie "Razor" Robfogel himself a transplant recipient. "Having worked in radio on air in the late 80s and early 90s I knew Tawn from that period and she was always so helpful to me that when Rudy Sarzo called to tell me of Tawn's situation and Rudy knowing what I went through I knew that I could help in some way to guide Tawn and her loving sister Cara through the medical side of things since I had been through it myself", states Robfogel. "This night of rock at Martini Blues was something that I helped put together, with the help of Jackie Davis who books the venue, and let me tell you that putting on a benefit is not an easy task. But I believe wholeheartedly in organ donation and the importance of getting the word out to help save lives. I have this past year become very involved with Donate Life America and Donate Life Rocks to help spread the word and tell people how important it is that we build up the organ donor pool in the country."

Robfogel goes on: "Tawn Mastrey is a perfect example of someone who is famous to many, but didn't have insurance and we all know that when it comes to medical care money talks in this world today. So we are doing what we can do to raise whatever we can to help Tawn right now. She needs medicines in the pre-transplant phase and certain organic foods to keep her healthy enough to withstand such a long operation. Through our show this past weekend we were able to raise well over $2000 for her and this was just a little venue. Steps are in motion to have much bigger concerts at much larger venues with big name rock n roll stars. Tawn touched and helped a lot of musicians in the hard rock scene in her time on the air, and they want to come out and play to help her now."

The show was helped made possible by Sennheiser USA who donated an incredible wireless set up for Metal Knights as well as Studio-949 owner Jeff Bresnahan who handled sound reinforcement for the show.
