Ron and Nicole Berg, and son Ben.
SODA SPRINGS — 28-year-old Ron Berg, husband to former Direct Communications employee, Nicole Berg, and father to 4-year-old Ben Berg, will perform at a benefit concert with Season 8 “American Idol” contestant Devin Bodkin, of Blackfoot, at Soda Springs High School on Thursday, Nov. 20, starting at 7 p.m.
Ron was diagnosed with Stage 3 brain cancer (anaplastic astrocytoma) seven years ago. At that time he was given less than one year to live. One year ago, Ron was diagnosed with stage four brain cancer (glioblastoma) and once again given less than a year to live. It has been 13 months, and Ron just learned that the cancer is all through his brain, and he has been given just a few months to live.
Of course, we have seen, and can continue to see miracles, but we would like to let Ron do something for our community that has been his passion since he was 8 years old.
He has had a love for music. He is a talented songwriter, singer, pianist and guitarist. There will be a silent auction as well as door prizes.
If anyone would like to contribute to this benefit concert by way of attendance at the concert, donating something for the auction and/or door prizes it would be greatly appreciated. Please call Brenda Cellan at 547-7089 if you have something you would like to donate.
Ron has been unable to work for the past year, so any donation would help his family out immensely. If you are unable to attend the concert, but would still like to make a monetary contribution, you can do so at any Advantage Plus Federal Credit Union or Wells Fargo Bank. Just tell them you would like to make a deposit into Ron L. Berg’s account with his birthday of 12-6-85 and tell them he lives in Soda Springs.
