15 Miles West & Suspended Benefit Concert The time has come for our end of the year concert! But this time we are doing something special! On top of Vibe's name change and new direction, we are raising money for the Arasato Family. Nolan Arasato is a member 15 Miles West. On March 26th 2014, Nolans father was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. A disorder that has left him paralyzed from the neck down. As of now, there is no known cure for this disease, but there are treatments available that can lessen the severity of the illness and accelerate the recovery in most patients. This is where we need your help. The treatments are very expensive, and not affordable. Nolan and his family do the best they can to help his father, but without the proper treatments they can only do so much. Nolan is going home for the summer to be with his family and is staying to help until his father's condition improves. We are putting this concert on for free as we always do, but we are asking you to come prepared to donate so we can raise money for his father. Anything helps, and this will help us in 15 get Nolan back as soon as possible so he can continue his college career. Thank you, and we hope to see you on the 5th!!!
