ARTISTS BAND TOGETHER FOR BENEFIT CONCERT TO AID THE WAR ON CANCER
Cancer has killed millions and has affected every person on earth. In Canada, 230,000 people get cancer every year and every year 85,000 of these Canadians die. 2 in every 5 people will get cancer in their lifetime. In 2021, Rocket Norton, formerly of the band Prism, was diagnosed with rectal cancer, and during his treatments a package arrived from a friend. It was a black tee-shirt with bold white letters:
These tee-shirts are everywhere. It’s an underground battle cry.
“I realized how fitting the slogan is. On behalf of every person on the planet who has been grieved by this disease we say … Cancer tried to kill us! F**k you cancer! We’re going to kill you first.” Rocket stated.
This slogan has inspired a charity concert in aid of the BC CANCER FOUNDATION called, appropriately enough, F**K CANCER.
A group of famous classic rock musicians from bands PRISM, LOVERBOY, LEE AARON, TROOPER, CHILLIWACK, HEADPINS, STREETHEART, POWDER BLUES, NICK GILDER and others have been assembled to play their hits at the Hard Rock Show Theatre in Coquitlam on Saturday October 1, 2022. Tickets on sale now. Purchase at https://fcancerconcert.com/tickets. All proceeds go directly to the BC Cancer Agency and you will receive a tax receipt for your generous donation.
