Bass Slap The Crap Outa' Cancer! Lauri Kilby Fund

Donation protected
Our beautiful friend Lauri Kilby was diagnosed with Glioblastoma in June of 2020, which is an aggressive form of brain cancer.  She had surgery to remove the mass from the back side of her brain at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

For the past eight months, Lauri has reminded all of us how truly special and larger than life she really is.  The strength and positivity passed along to us from her in this dire situation must be used as an example of how to handle many difficult things in life.

Since the start of Lauri’s journey, she has endured radiation treatments paired with rounds of chemo.  All of the checkups found no new progression of the disease. 

However, in mid-January 2021, it was discovered that there is another mass in her brain that will need to be removed.  

We are trying to raise enough money to allow Lauri the opportunity to be relieved of her medical expenses during this trying time.  She is entering round two of this fight and will need all of the support she can get!

We need to work fast!

Now it’s time for us to fight alongside Lauri so she can continue to be the most amazing mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, grandparent, colleague and friend!

Lauri is a big hard rock fan!  So to really boost this thing up we are giving away a newly customized Toby Tobias bass guitar!

And now, a new guitar has been donated to the fund!  Also check out the pictures of the Early 90s Epiphone Les Paul in Purple Flake. Pick ups are Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and a Seymour Duncan 59 in the neck that you can win as well!

DR Strings, Dimarzio Pickups, CTS pots, Switchcraft switch and jack.

Every $5 donated, your name will be entered into the drawing!  We will draw and close the fund March 14th!

Thank you for reading Lauri’s story!   We are extremely grateful for support and the shares!

You do not have to enter the drawing for the bass guitar!  Simply donate anonymously and your help is still greatly appreciated!  Rock on!
