Hervey Bay rocks for critically ill Tyler Rostedt
THE Rostedt family has been left overwhelmed after more than 400 people attended a concert in Hervey Bay to raise funds for critically ill son, Tyler.
Leanne Rostedt said she was overwhelmed by the love and support she felt at the Yarrilee State School concert which raised almost $10,000 on Saturday.
"One elderly woman walked in, donated $100 and said 'I just felt like I had to be here today'," she said.
Tyler, 25, left Hervey Bay to study performance art in Ohio until he was recently diagnosed with a brain tumour which needed urgent attention.
Leanne is flying to America today to be with Tyler when he has surgery on Thursday.
