DEVILDRIVER and COAL CHAMBER frontman Dez Fafara has recorded a benefit song for his sister Kerri, who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Entitled “Dark Meadowlark”, the track was produced by Greg Weiss (DEVILDRIVER) and is currently being mixed by Logan Mader (SOULFLY, GOJIRA, DEVILDRIVER). “[It] sounds badass,” says Dez.
Even with insurance, Kerri‘s family can’t cover the costs of her surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for the upcoming year. “We have two daughters still at home, we’ve relocated from Boise to Irvine (really close to UCLA/UCI treatment center — what good fortune!), but the cost of two years of what’s called ‘out of pocket maximum costs’ are definitely a burden,” she says.
To help Kerri with the costs associated with her breast cancer treatment and follow-up care, you can make a donation via the online fundraising web site Microgiving at this location.
