LAWRENCEVILLE -- On April 1, 2008, Collins Hill student Taylor Brooks lost her life to a rare childhood cancer called Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor. She was an avid soccer player, a first degree black belt in Tang Soo Do and sang in her high school's chorus.

On Saturday, there is a concert at McKendree United Methodist Church in Lawrenceville to honor the Taylor Brooks Foundation and raise money to help serve patients, families and doctors dealing with rare forms of childhood cancer.

At 7 p.m., Chordination and Da Boyz from Da Hill -- two a capella groups -- are taking stage to raise additional funds for the local nonprofit.

Tickets are $7. McKendree UMC is located at 1570 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road in Lawrenceville.

The proceeds benefit the Taylor Brooks Foundation. For more information about the organization, visit www.taylorbrooksfoundation.org.
