Kathy Brown's Battle With Cancer

Donation protected
Last week my mother, the internationally celebrated house music vocalist and chart-topping diva, was told that she has stage 4 lung cancer which has already spread to her brain. The news came as a total shock as the cancer was only discovered after my mom was taken to ICU here in Charleston, South Carolina where she’d recently returned home for a visit. The doctors performed surgery right away to try and reduce some of the swelling in her brain, and my mom is currently recovering from the operation but the road ahead is going to be a challenge unlike any she has faced before.

As the news is only just sinking in we are already facing the harsh reality of what this means for my mother - not only the physical and medical challenges but also the many financial ones. Like most artists who have devoted their careers to dance music, without being able to perform LIVE there’s little to no chance of earning an income. My mother has poured her heart and soul onto stages and dance floors all over the world for more than thirty years, and now she needs your love and support more than ever. My siblings and I are going to do everything we can to take care of her, but the costs we are facing with medical expenses and monthly bills is overwhelming.

My mom deserves the best care and comfort that money can buy. I know that she has thousands of fans all over the world who adore her voice and her beautiful spirit. Please consider contributing to assist Kathy and get her through the weeks and months ahead. The London-based record label ‘Revival’ that she has recently been working with have offered to match contributions up to $10,000. Let’s show my mom that the dance music community really is an extended family who keep each other lifted not only in the good times, but the hard times too. Thank you for the love, support and many messages that you have been posting and sending to Kathy. I promise you that she sees every single one, and they mean so very much to her.
