A musical evening slated to take place Saturday, Nov. 7 in Abbotsford in support of a young girl battling bone cancer has been postponed until Feb. 27.

The evening features Randy “Elvis” Friskie and his band The Extraordinaires, with Cassandra Friskie as opening act.

The concert is a fundraiser for Greta Loewen, 6, who was diagnosed almost a year ago with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.

She has since had ongoing treatment at BC Children’s Hospital and also travelled to Boston, where she received a type of radiation treatment not available in Canada.

Fundraisers throughout the year – including a bottle drive, a craft fair, an art auction and a book drive – have helped cover expenses such as medication, travel, meals and living costs, as mom Heather and dad Tim stay by Greta’s side.

The concert on will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Matsqui Centennial Auditorium, 32315 South Fraser Way. Ticket information will be released at a later date.
