Lemmy, Matt Sorum, Billy Morrison, Dave Navarro To Rock Cancer Event
Carolyne Williams is a 27-year-old breast cancer warrior and advocate. After months of being told that her cancer was just a cyst or an infection, Carolyne discovered the worst: that she was diagnosed with malignant Cystosarcoma Phyllodes while having no health insurance from her part-time job. Cystosarcoma Phyllodes is a sarcoma, a very rare type of breast cancer that accounts for less than 1% of breast cancer diagnosis. Phyllodes currently has no research or support for survivors from the bigger Breast Cancer Foundations, because of its rarity. Phyllodes is made of connective tissue and blood, that forms in the breast that does not respond to chemo or radiation. Sadly, many cases of breast cancer are currently being found in younger girls/women in their teens, 20's and 30's, and in many cases they are being misdiagnosed, as Carolyne was. There needs to be more awareness to this growing and sadly silent epidemic.
This benefit is to help raise awareness and spread hope in the darkness of cancer and its effects on families and friends of the infected. The benefit hopes to raise funds in order to help Carolyne with her disease. This unprecedented and special event will include appearances by Camp Freddy featuring Matt Sorum (Guns N' Roses/Velvet Revolver), Billy Morrison (Billy Idol/The Cult), Dave Navarro (Janes Addiction/Red Hot Chili Peppers), and is hosted by Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath. Other monumental yet-to-be-named guests will be making appearances, so make sure to head out and support an incredible cause and witness amazing guest showings. The event will take place this Monday, January 24th at the Whiskey A Go Go in West Hollywood, CA. Performing at the event will be Head Cat featuring Lemmy Kilmiste of Motorhead, and Darling Stilettos.
