Loud Fight Against Cancer

Fight cancer in the loudest way possible. Join A Gift of Hope to benefit new mother Diana Caserta's fight against cancer. Caserta had a facial tumor successfully removed, but shortly after conceiving her first child, she was diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC). ACC is a rare form of cancer, found mainly in the head and neck, and is known for having long periods of no growth followed by growth spurts. Soon after welcoming a healthy daughter, she underwent facial surgery to remove four more tumors. The diagnosis was grave; the cancer had spread. Western medicine decided there was nothing more that could be done. Caserta is now working with alternative medical specialists, and the treatments she is undergoing are not covered by insurance. Costs are mounting, but with your help, she can continue her fight. Performing at the benefit will be Raggy Monster, Everymen, Retrocities, Bonnie Riot, and DJ Tonx. An art show, live art, snacks, and other refreshments will also be on tap. Suggested donations are $20. Support A Gift of Hope this Saturday at 8 p.m. at Green Room Nightclub, 109 SW Second Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-449-1025.
