THE Ipswich community has rallied behind a mother whose doctor has given her only weeks to live.

Even country music star Troy Cassar-Daley has come to the support of Jo Goldstein and is due to perform at a fundraiser for her family in Coominya tomorrow.

Mrs Goldstein, a 32-year-old mother of three, was diagnosed with small cell carcinoma in September 2011, but was told by doctors in January she had only eight weeks to live.

Dean Goldstein, Jo's husband, said the family had been overwhelmed by the support.

"It's been great. The support we've received from people we don't even know is amazing," he said.

Mr Goldstein said there had been support from individuals and companies including the donation of a pool by Barrier Reef Pools and a flight to Sydney to see family.

The pool was one of Jo's wishes before money had to be spent on medical treatment.

A fundraiser will be held at the Coominya General Store tomorrow from 11am where Troy Cassar-Daley will be performing.

There Coominya local Tahlia Jordan will have her head shaved with the money going towards the This Hair Goes for Jo campaign.

Mr Cassar-Daley said he wanted to help out however he could.

"I'm just hoping by being there I can get a good mob to raise some money for Jo," he said.

"The support I've seen for her has just been amazing; even the support I've seen on Facebook is great."

Mr Goldstein said CrossFit, which he has been involved in for seven years, had also come to the support of the family.

Groups in Tivoli, Sumner Park, Bundamba and Ipswich have all offered their support.

Alongside Ms Jordan's fundraiser a group will shave their heads at 11am tomorrow, while another will be waxed at Ella Bache Saturday.

Money can be donated to the bank account This Hair Goes for Jo, BSB 814 282, account number 312 64472.
