It’s really nice to the SL community help to donate for RL causes and this shows again anything is possible. I’m sure this amazing donation will go along way to help Beth with her brain surgery. I wish her all the best with the recovery of the brain surgery.

It’s very heart warming. She is a wonderful person and an awesome musician, and very loved. The whole family is 🙂 for all their contributions to the music community and more. It’s amazing to see an old school “barn raising” not just for a generic cause… for a wonderful woman and for a friend.
Yeah Daniel. This is where we shine as a community. We care about each other. The family is in my prayers.
I wish Beth all the best and true the SL community cares about each other. 🙂
Still awaiting results of an investigation requested to the Dallas FBI and Linden Labs about potential fraud in this fund raiser.
I find it hard to believe that someone would have brain surgery and play live music 12 hours after?
Amazing I think.
Brain surgery may be carried out due to various varying reasons. The most notable reason why brain surgery procedure is carried out is due to the growth of tumors in the brain. Brain tumor leads to complications such as memory loss and in most cases death. Though brain tumor is operable there are some tumors that are literally inoperable due to their extensive growth. Other than brain surgery, removal of tumors from the brain can be done through chemotherapy. This is however recommended for cancer patients. Other reasons that can facilitate brain surgery include brain hemorrhage and severe head injuries. ,
