EUGENE, Ore. — The saying goes, you get what you give. After years of giving, a local musician finds himself on the receiving end.
You might not know the name Paul Biondi, but you’ve likely you’ve seen him perform, perhaps even benefited from his music.
Last year, Biondi was diagnosed with lymphoma. Further tests revealed a tumor in his colon. Doctors removed it. Now he’s facing chemotherapy.
Biondi has health insurance, but it’s not enough. So 35 bands are coming together Sunday to play music and raise money.
Biondi is staying strong, but he still has three months of chemotherapy. Sunday, at the concert, he may find the strength to play.
If you’d like to attend the Pay it Forward Benefit for Paul Biondi, it’s this Sunday, Nov. 24 at Mac’s Restaurant and Nightclub at the Vet’s Club in Eugene. It’s from 1-10 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $10.
