The family of Slayer frontman TOM ARAYA is organising a charity concert to raise funds for the singer's sick sister, who is battling ovarian cancer.
Anamaria Araya was diagnosed with the disease in 1996 but the cancer has spread and she has been unable to afford the mounting treatment costs.
So her relatives have stepped up to hold a benefit gig in her honour.
Cisco Araya, brother of rocker Tom, tells Blabbermouth.net: "Our family is putting on a little benefit concert for our oldest sister Anamaria, who has ovarian cancer.
"We want to raise money to help her pay for her treatments that have become increasingly more expensive and complicated. She has been fighting cancer for 13 years. The cancer has progressed but she is still fighting.
"This concert will involve most of our family musicians, visual artists and some of our musician friends. Our family is lucky to have so many talented, creative people in it."
The show takes place on 29 May (09) in Long Beach, California.
