Sugarland Guitarist Surprises Cancer Patients

OMAHA – Cancer patients in Omaha got a pleasant surprise this week.

Thursday morning, Sugarland guitarist Thad Beaty visited 22 families at Bland and Associates in Omaha.

At the meet-and-greet, Beaty met Emily Koester, a 15 year old musician who has battled cancer twice.

Koester said she was attending the concert later that evening when Beaty gave her two guitar picks and offered to have the band’s guitar tech fix part of her guitar.

Beaty believes it doesn’t take much to make a big impact, but he’s asking questions and listening to stories.
