“Raising Hell for Mel” with Blackest Sin, Caveat, Greybeard, and His Last Words – February 15th at The Brass Monkey Pub

 

 

Calgary Beer Core and Big Nate Productions are coming together to Raise some money for a solid underground music supporter Melanie Sinneave.

 

Melanie suffers from severe Crohn’s disease, with several fistula tracks accompanied by chronic internal abscesses. She has spent almost three decades living with this disease and it’s escalating complications. Having fistulas puts her at risk for sepsis (blood poisoning), organ failure, and dangerously low blood pressure, among other things.

 

Western medicine does not have a cure for Melanie’s condition, all that they can do it try to minimize the damage to her body through surgical intervention and the results are temporary. Melanie currently has 3 holes in her colon and has had 16 surgeries in the last 5 years (9 of which were in 2018).

 

Melanie recently had to go to another country in order to seek medical treatment for her condition that is not available here in Canada. This treatment was another surgical procedure that was done over the course of two months and cost a total of $50,000. She has been home for two weeks, and will find out how successful this treatment was once her healing is complete in a few months.

 

If you are interested in learning more about Melanie and her condition please visit the GoFundMe page that was done by her sister. https://www.gofundme.com/pcrt7h-please-help-my-sister Thank you very much for your support and donations.

Run As One Music Festival – August 2018

 

Now that we’ve been rehydrated, we wanted to throw out a big thank you to Rich RunningRabbit, Carlin Blackrabbit, and all the crew and volunteers at Siksika Health Services for putting on an excellent Run As One Music Festival this year! It was a great rendition and having Carlin and Von stage managing was huge and made everything smooth as silk. It was HOT and it showed how much the Siksika Nation take care of and support everyone.

 

Not only were we able to provide the staging, PA and lighting systems, but we also successfully recorded this amazing event. Looking forward to next year! THANK YOU!
