The DeLand community is coming together to support resident Steve Bradley, a frequent community volunteer, in his battle with cancer.
“Stevepalooza” will take place at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 24, at Cafe DaVinci, 112 W. Georgia Ave. in Downtown DeLand.
The event will feature live music donated by several bands, barbecue, raffles, a 50/50 drawing, an auction and more — all with the goal of helping Bradley enroll in a nontraditional 10-week cancer treatment that is not covered by his insurance.
Bradley is seeking the treatment, his girlfriend Lisa Monti said, after several unsuccessful rounds of radiation and chemotherapy.
“He is an incredibly kind and wonderful human who would go out of his way to help anyone,” Monti said of Bradley, adding “We are both so grateful to our loving community that have chosen to come together and help raise additional funds for his fight. His strength has been unbelievably admirable.”
All are welcome. Donations are also welcome to Bradley’s GoFundMe account. Search for “Stevie B Strong by Michael Nadeau” at www.gofundme.com.
Stevepalooza is being organized by Bradley’s friends, led by Courtney Ford, Samara McLaughlin, Sarah Campbell and Paul Jones.
