The Story

This fundraiser is lovingly set up to help singer/songwriter and angel of a woman, Erica Buettner, win her battle against Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Erica is a 32 year old musician and teacher who just moved back to the USA with her husband from Europe to be closer to her family in New York City. A few months after beginning her first year teaching English language arts at a middle school in Brownsville, Brooklyn, she received the devastating news that she has an aggressive form of breast cancer requiring extensive chemo treatments and surgery.


Erica has barely been able to land on her feet in a new city and now she is facing costs associated with her cancer. She has no safety net, this is a fight for her life and she needs extra help with the daily unexpected expenses like medical bills, medicines, and costs-associated with recovery from her chemo treatments.


Erica’s kind heart and generous soul are known and appreciated by everyone around her. Her incredible songwriting and voice have brought joy to those who know her through her music. The long awaited release of her second album, The Book of Waves is central to Erica’s healing and emotional well-being while she fights her battle against cancer. Its expected release is June which is now just before her surgeries begin. A new urgency has emerged to complete this work and share her story.


Please join us in giving back to this extraordinary woman in her hour of need so she can focus on healing and doing what she was put on this earth to do, create beautiful music and words for all of us....


At the fountains of sorrow,

you don't make a wish,

everyone learns how to swim like a fish

You save all your pennies for a luckier tide

If wishes were horses then beggars would ride


But we will stay afloat

drop our hearts like anchors and rock like the boat

My love was born with gills

A cavernous space that creates, restores, and refills


Time Traveling from the album True Love and Water
