Poison drummer Rikki Rockett suffered from tongue cancer, but after participating in an immunotherapy clinical trial at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, he was declared cancer-free in July last year.
Rockett is now ready to give back and he is asking to all the fans who are going on their concerts to join him in supporting immunotherapy at Moores Cancer Center. At Poison's U.S. shows attendees will have an opportunity to hear his story, to watch a video about Moores Cancer Center and will be given the opportunity to donate $10 by texting "RIKKI" to 50555. (Anyone else at home can also participate at any time.)
Rockett: "Without the doctors and staff at Moores Cancer Center, I can honestly say I don't think I'd be here today, to say nothing about playing drums and going on tour again,. I am incredibly grateful that I've got my life back and I'll get to see my two children grow up." (via Blabbermouth)
Donations will directly support cancer immunotherapy at Moores Cancer Center, including research, clinical trials and patient care.
