The death of Poly Styrene of X-Ray Spex from breast and spinal cancer prompted us to organize OH CANCER! UP YOURS! with the intention of raising funds for research. By bringing together as many related charities and services as possible, we hope to make this the biggest, baddest, boldest cancer benefit Vancouver has ever seen.

While the death of Poly Styrene inspired this event, it is not in any way exclusive to her. Most, if not all of us, have lost loved ones to cancer, and benefits of this nature are crucial if we are to develop new and better treatments. The event has a decidedly feminine tone, but men should not in any way feel excluded. Cancer is an equal opportunity disease, killing both sexes indiscriminately. Help fight the scourge that has robbed us all.

Event Details:

* Featuring KISS THIS! (Orchard Pinkish - Gene, Greg Laiken - Paul Stanley, Erol Sora - Ace Frehley, Cameron Rowe - Eric Carr)

* Also appearing: Johnny Thunders Tribute featuring members of The Lifetakers, 69 GUNS, NEXT PISTOLS (sex pistols tribute)

* OH CANCER! UP YOURS! merchandise will be for sale again.

* Drink specials.

Although cancer is very sobering disease, there is no reason for us to be miserable. Poly Styrene and cancer victims everywhere would like nothing better than to see us laugh in the face of this murderous bully. We intend to celebrate life as we search for answers. Join us.
