Rubblebucket's Kalmia Traver Battling Ovarian Cancer


Earlier today Rubblebucket vocalist/saxophonist Kalmia Traver shared the
shocking news that she was recently diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Thankfully, the
prognosis seems to be good. Traver posted a note about the situation that includes a call
to action:

Dear World, friends and fans and people I love,

I want to share with you the news that shocked my world about a month ago: I found out
that I have ovarian cancer. The doctors found a malignant tumor during a surgery to remove
what they thought was a totally normal cyst for a woman my age. It was caught very early,
and as of now there are no other signs of cancer in my body, so it’s looking promising
that I’ll be totally ok. We’ll know much more after my surgery July 26th.

What does this mean for us? Well, we get to go through this all together. It’s gonna get
crazy! When doesn’t it? Needless to say there will be some very real and challenging
moments ahead. We’ve decided we want to keep truckin all fall, recording and playing
shows. I will be counting on ALL OF YOU to be my love line, my support group and
inspirations (as always). I’ll be updating, and if anybody wants to reach out to me
directly, feel free to email me at cherryfeatherthugkalmiawcancer@gmail.com. I’d be
extremely grateful for your ideas, prayers, thoughts, reiki love, sharing your own stories
of cancer, shrines (look at this one my dad made!!!!!!) etc. And most importantly I ask
that you all take care of yourselves! Love your mind-spirit-bodies, be healthy, get
checkups, eat well, laugh a lot, be kind to each other, be kind to this earth that we are
made of.

Love, Kalmia

The JamBase team is sending our love and prayers Kalmia’s way.
