Young Tri-Cities musician holds benefit concert to raise money for child battling cancer | WJHL

JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. (WJHL) – A young Tri-Cities musician gave a benefit concert on Wednesday to raise money for a local child fighting cancer.

Singer Lynnae Moon’s performance at Barrel House in Jonesborough was for 6-year-old Cash Hicks, who has neuroblastoma, a cancer of the nervous system.

Cash was diagnosed with cancer when he was two years old.

Although he couldn’t attend Tuesday’s event, Cash was able to watch via FaceTime.

Funds raised will go towards medical and travel expenses to and from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.

“Regardless of what his scans show next month, he will have at least 12 chemotherapy treatments in total, so we’re looking at at least nine rounds of treatment,” said Cash’s mom, Katie Hicks. “But until now he tolerated it like a champion, as he always has, and he just keeps doing whatever he has to do.”

Katie Hicks said her son is feeling fine but staying away from the hustle and bustle. On Friday he will celebrate his seventh birthday.
