Concert by Bebo Norman to benefit baby of young Marine mom who lost battle with cancer

posted by Billie Owens in batavia, bebo norman.

Kailee Bridges is fighting for her life right now passed away Tuesday night from a rare bone cancer. She was a 20-year-old Marine, with a newborn daughter named Lilly, and a husband, Justin, who is also a Marine.

To help this Batavia family, major Christian recording artist and Dove Award winner Bebo Norman, who lives in Nashville, has graciously agreed to perform a benefit concert called "Love for Lilly: A Concert for Hope." It's this Friday evening, May 10, beginning at 7 at Grace Baptist Church, Batavia, located at 238 Vine St.

Tickets are $30 and $25. Monetary donations are also welcome and the church has set up an account for them called the Lilly Trust Fund.

The concert will undoubtedly draw a packed house of people from Canada to Connecticut to help raise funds for Kailee's family.

Kailee was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer known as osteosarcoma during her pregnancy. It was found in her pelvis and she was not expected to live. She had emergency, high-risk surgery in an effort to save her life. She pulled through, and so did Lilly, who was subjected to chemo in the womb.


Event Date and Time:
