A few years ago, Lamb of God lead singer Randy Blythe auctioned off his first Grammy medallion that he won for "Redneck" to raise money for Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy research. Now, the person who won that auction is paying it forward to help Blythe.
This summer, Blythe learned his sister-in-law was battling Stage 3 triple negative breast cancer and he promoted a GoFundMe page set up to help her with the medical costs.
Todd Stone had two kids who were diagnosed with Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy and the money from the auction went to help with the research for that affliction. Now, Stone is paying it back by re-auctioning off the Grammy medallion again -- this time to raise money to help Blythe's sister-in-law.
For anyone wondering, the reason that Stone has the medallion is that the winner gave it to him after making the winning bid. He just wanted to help with the research more than he wanted the medallion. Now, Stone is paying back Blythe for his generosity.
When Blythe learned about this at the time, he called the winning bidder -- who was a giant Lamb of God fan -- and thanked him. Then, when the band played in California, he invited the man to visit the show and spend time with the band.
Now. after everything that was done to help with research for a friend of Blythe's, it seems that his sister-in-law will receive all the help she needs financially during this very hard time in her life.
