Concert for Liza, a fundraiser for 12-year-old Liza Parker, will be held at 6 p.m. in the Gadsden State Community College-Cherokee Arena in Centre. Acts include Ronnie Kisor and Friends and Rebekah James. If you’ve ever met Liza Parker, you’ve never forgotten her. Her spirit, her story, is so inspiring that no one leaves her with an unchanged soul! Read on to learn more about this amazing person! Liza Parker was diagnosed with Von Hippel-Lindau disease, or VHL, at the age of 13. VHL is a rare autosomal genetic condition that predisposes individuals to benign and malignant tumors. Most commonly this disease causes tumors in the central nervous system as well as retinal hemangioblastomas. In Liza’s case, VHL has all but cost her her sight, and her condition is terminal. The Concert for Liza is a collective effort by those that love her to honor her with one of her greatest joys – seeing her brother, Josh, and his friends who made up the college band Mother Nature Sunne, play together on stage. In order to make this happen the guys have gotten together after nearly 20 years for one last show! That show is your opportunity to see an outpouring of love and support for a truly wonderful individual, as well as hear some great classic rock! The cost of the show is but a few hours of your time! We simply hope that you make a tax deductible gift in whatever amount speaks to you toward a fund for Liza’s medical expenses.
