Singer-songwriter Victoria Williams was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1993. At the time, she didn’t have insurance and was able to pay her medical expenses with the help of friends like Pearl Jam, Lou Reed and Lucinda Williams. They made the benefit project CD Sweet Relief: A Benefit for Victoria Williams, which would end up becoming the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

More recently, in mid-December 2015, Williams had a seizure, injuring her back and fracturing her shoulder. She is expected to recover fully, however, the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund is asking fans and supporters to contribute donations because her medical insurance will not be covering the costs.

Williams' career began back in 1987, with debut album Happy Come Home. Below is one of her best-known songs, "Crazy Mary," which Pearl Jam covered for the benefit album.
