ST. GEORGE – In August, 13-year-old Mackayla Marshall of Hurricane went in for a routine eye exam and ended up being rushed to Primary Children’s Hospital due to an aggressive tumor that was discovered on her left orbital socket. After four days of tests, Marshall was diagnosed with osteosarcoma.
According to the American Cancer Society, osteosarcoma is the most common type of cancer that develops in bone. Most osteosarcomas occur in children and young adults, with teens being the most commonly affected age group.
In order to support Marshall and her family as she undergoes chemotherapy, Kalamity and Kaos Krew are hosting a silent auction and “Pray for Kay” benefit concert Saturday at Hurricane High School, 345 W. Tiger Blvd. The silent auction will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the concert will begin at 7 p.m.
Kalamity is a professional hip-hop group and Kaos Krew is its sister group of student dancers, a previous report for St. George News said. The dancers give of their time and talents each year to help support people in the community who are in need.
The approximately hour-long concert will feature performances by Kalamity and Kaos Krew, the Hurricane High School cheerleaders, Hurricane High School Dance Company and more.
Tickets for the “Pray for Kay” benefit are $5 if purchased from a Kalamity or Kaos Krew member or $10 at the door. Proceeds from the silent auction and concert go directly to help Marshall in her battle with cancer.
