As most of you now know she was recently diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in February with a 5.2 tumor in her left breast. Soon after the diagnosis she went through a double mastectomy. She is currently going through chemotherapy. 8 sessions. 4 of which are a double dose of A&C. Hard core. She has been in high spirits although the bills are stacking high. She as most victims of this terrible disease cannot work to pay the bills due to the extreme exhaustion. So we are throwing a HUGE PARTY to raise some cash to help her out

Q: How is it that you have a different guitar in almost every photo??
A: I own the two main guitars you see in the photos. One is an ovation, and the other an Aria. They can be a little fickle, so I switch it up depending on which guitar sounds the best at the time.
