Proceeds from the Tammy Carmona Fun(d)raiser on Sunday, July 24, 2016 from 2:00 – 5:00 pm at Frog Level Brewery, 56 Commerce Street, Waynesville will go towards living expenses during treatment while she cannot work. Come prepared for fun with music and entertainment by DJ Captain Moose, karaoke, dancing, food, a silent auction, fabulous door prizes and more to celebrate life with Tammy Carmona. A donation of $10 at the door includes admission and food. Donations to the Tammy Carmona Fund are gratefully accepted at any branch of TD Bank, to the following account: Router: 053902197, Account: 4329609593, and online at http://youcaring.com/givetotammycarmona. Any amount is greatly appreciated. For more information, please call 828-550-7050. About Tammy Carmona Among the smiling faces you’ll find in Waynesville’s shops, Tammy Carmona is a national celebrity of sorts, touching thousands of lives nationwide every month. Her genuine smile and cheery countenance are especially bright. A deeper look reveals an incredible and unique strength of character and wisdom born out of difficult circumstances. Tammy is living with stage IV metastatic breast cancer, a disease that takes many lives annually. For Tammy, her diagnosis has brought her a new family of friends, a personal journey of health, and a deep understanding of our health system and supporting organizations. Finding a lump in her breast in February of 2013 at age 39, Tammy began a new chapter in her life and has documented her journey in a blog at www.tammycarmona.com. Reaching over 100,000 readers, she offers support to those on a similar journey. In March, her blog was recognized as one of 2015 Best Metastatic Cancer Blogs by Health-line. Tammy was also a guest speaker at the Metastatic Cancer Research group in Washington in October 2015 and helped to raise over $1 million for this organization. As a result of her chemotherapy, Tammy, like others, now lives with Type I diabetes that surfaced last year. With her sugar levels suddenly out of control, she spent a good part of her vacation in the hospital. This year Tammy took her health into her own hands and has been successful in maintaining appropriate blood sugar levels through diet, reducing the need for both insulin and pain medication. Most recently, Tammy has been diagnosed with cancer cells in her ovaries and brain. She has endured painful radiation, chemotherapy and surgery but Tammy is a strong spirit, full of life. Since Tammy is not able to work, a dedicated donation account has been set up at TD Bank to assist Tammy and her family. Donations can be made at any TD branch office, to the following account: Router: 053902197, Account: 4329609593. To donate online, please visit http://youcaring.com/givetotammycarmona. Any amount is greatly appreciated. For more information, please contact Nancy Powell at 828-550-7050.

Performances include flashy 80s and sleek 90s Hip Hop Showgirl, a Jazzy Showgirl shout out to Prince, a Modern performance to a Color Me Badd hit, Bellydance, and Bhangra (Indian).

The show will be hosted by the local, hilarious improv troupe, No Regets, and includes aerial performances by Amber Victoria, live music by Yourmomsmixtape (local musicians Matt Kinne and Ken Kiser), and a buti yoga demo by Cynthia Sims. The DJ overseeing all the festivities is DJ How D Bot (aka Juan Holladay from the Secret B-Sides). Other pop-up surprises await! $1 from every regular ticket and $2 from every VIP ticket will go to Girls Rock Asheville and Girls on the Run, two great local organizations that empower girls to grow into strong and confident women. There will also be a raffle with fun 80s/90s inspired gifts, with some of the proceeds going to these organizations too.
