Boise Bands to Stand and Deliver Against Hep C 

Wednesday, June 6, at Neurolux

"I got found out I had Hep C the last year Kurt Cobain was alive," said Christopher Webster.

Webster, now 44, is cured of Hepatitis C, but on Wednesday, June 6, he will hold a benefit to help people who aren't.

The Stand and Deliver Your Money or Your Liver benefit will take place at the Neurolux from 7-11 p.m. Grandma Kelsey will join New Transit while hillbilly folk band Jim Boyer from Portland, Ore., will headline. Webster will also play a few songs.

"Most people don't even know they have Hep C until they get sick," he said.

Webster hopes the event will raise awareness about the disease. The money raised will go to pay for people without health insurance to get tested. Proceeds will go to the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho, Inc.

"Your fate depends on finding out that you have it," Webster said.
