Please support Paul Cardall at this wonderful benefit concert put on by some of his friends who care (Kurt Bestor, Peter Breinholt, and Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband, along with other talented artists). I saw some of these guys in concert while at BYU and they were great. This is very dear to me since it is helping a wonderful family who has inspired many heart families including mine. This would be a GREAT FHE activity for students and families. The “Living for Eden Concert,” so named in honor of Cardall’s 3-year-old daughter, will get underway at 7:30 p.m on Monday, April 6 at Cottonwood High. A silent auction will precede the concert beginning at 6:30 p.m.“ Cardall, who was born 35 years ago with a severe congenital heart defect, has been on the waiting list for a heart transplant since last August. He has been limited in his ability to support his family and to meet escalating medical expenses during his prolonged illness. Seeing their friend’s condition, Cardall’s colleagues decided to do what they do best – make music and use their talents to benefit Paul, his wife Lynnette and their daughter Eden.“Each of us wanted to do something to benefit Paul,” said Peter Breinholt. “Coming together as we are is our way of paying tribute to, as well as helping, one of our own. A hundred percent of the proceeds will go to help Paul with his mounting expenses.

It's so great to see all the support in the 'heart community' for Paul. He has a special place in our 'hearts' after being such a support to Michele and Tom and doing such a wonderful job at Gracie's funeral. We will be at the concert for sure!
