Nita Strauss Will Join A Livestream Jam To Support Jason Becker To Cover His Expensive Hospital Bills
On a recent Instagram post, Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss announced that she will be joining a livestream jam event to support iconic guitarist Jason Becker.
As you might already know, Jason Becker’s career cut short following the ALS disease, and he can now communicate with people with his eyes from the computer. Right now, he has been having complications with his health.
In the post, Nita mentioned that Jason is having troubles with his health and his medical bills are higher than ever. Because of that, she will join the livestream jam alongside Herman Li to help Becker’s medical bills.
As Nita stated that Jason is the guitar hero we all needed, she also said that this is the time he needs us, and they need to show their support for him. Also, Nita noticed that all the profits will go directly to Jason Becker.
Here is what Nita Strauss said:
“I’m very honored to join Herman Li and so many awesome guitarists worldwide for a livestream jam in support of our hero, the legendary Jason Becker.
As you may have heard, Jason has been having some complications to his health lately and has even had a couple trips to the hospital. His medical bills are higher than ever now and he is even auctioning some of his own guitars to cover the costs.
Jason is the guitar hero we all needed- and now we have the chance to show up in full force when he needs us.”
“Please join us on Thursday at 1 pm PT/ 4 ET if you can at twitch.tv/hermanli 🙏🏻 There is no cost to view the stream and no account needed- just click the link, I’ll be there at that time!
All funds raised will go directly to Jason’s family to help with his medical bills and needs. So far over $50,000 has been raised!! I know not everyone is in a position to donate right now, but even your presence there in the livestream will make an impact!
From the first time Josh V surprised me with meeting Jason, we have always wanted to do something to help, and there are more things in the works! Tag your shred friends in the comments, and I’ll see you guys on Thursday.”
