Artist, former nun hosts fundraiser for lifesaving bone marrow transplant

REGION — Artist and former Self-Realization Fellowship nun Heidi Hall is hosting another benefit concert and art sale to raise funds for her delayed bone marrow transplant.

Hall, an Oceanside resident, has been battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia since late 2010.

Though originally planned for January, Hall’s lifesaving transplant was bumped to June 26 due to medical complications.

After spending 30 years as a nun for SRF without any financial savings and being unable to work since her diagnosis, Hall hopes to raise funds for the expenses insurance will not cover, including medical care as she recovers from the procedure. The benefit will be held May 31 at 7:30 p.m. at Seaside Church in Encinitas.

The event will feature musical performances by Shimshai, Deepak of the Breath of Life Tribe, and Josiah as well as a show of Hall’s art of sacred figures.
