If you were given a second chance at life, how would you choose to live? Two years ago, Trey was lying in a hospital bed, intubated…sedated…with a gaping wound in abdomen. After becoming septic from a perforated bowel, it was discovered that Trey had a cancerous mass in his colon. He nearly died at the hospital… twice.

By some miracle, doctors saved him. Trey’s soul would never be the same and neither would his friends’. On January 15th 2011, five local bands played in front of an audience at the rock benefit branded “Treystock” to support a fellow musician. While Trey was still too sick to attend, the night was electric and emotional- unforgettable. After enduring months of life threatening infections and grueling chemotherapy, Trey is a survivor.

Today Trey is still battling cancer. He is receiving chemotherapy to treat two small spots on his lung. But Treystock 3 is not about helping Trey.

Despite his health status, Trey and his friends are organizing the third annual Treystock. Last April 21st 2012, local bands donated their talent and energy to help raise money for organizations Trey holds close to his heart. This coming April 20th, 2013, we want to continue to pay it forward. Through the power of music, once again, we will bring people together in an effort to raise money for charities that impact our lives on a personal level:

Shenango Valley Relay for Life- - A life changing event that helps communities across the globe celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

Autism Speaks- The world's leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.

Out of the Darkness- Net proceeds from the Out of the Darkness Community walks benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), the leading national not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide.

Musician Henry Rollins has been quoted as saying “Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on”. We all have things in our lives we struggle with. Rather than allowing adversity to consume us, we want to channel our energy into something bigger than all of us.

Today we play to pay it forward...
