Hi everyone! How are you doing? We don’t wanna get all sappy but we have some bad/good news. After Fest this fall, Mixtapes is gonna go on a break. We’re not breaking up for good—eventually we want to play as Mixtapes again—but as of now we’re not sure the next time that will be.

My sister has decided to take a trip to Boston Children’s Hospital to get a second opinion. They are the #1 hospital in the nation for Children’s Nephrology. My family is by no means a rich family, and we unfortunately don’t have the money to completely cover the costs associated with the visit. The feeling of helplessness in this situation is entirely overwhelming.
