The Canadian country music industry really is one big family! On Sunday March 3, 2019 the Canadian country music family will be coming together in an Opry-style benefit concert to support Runaway Angel singer, Cadence Grace. The event entitled, 'Country Kicks Cancer's Ass' will take place at the Rock 'N' Horse Saloon in downtown Toronto. The evening will feature performances by Jessica Mitchell, Eric Ethridge, Leah Daniels, Genevieve Fisher, Kris Barclay and more!
After receiving the devasting diagnosis of Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia in early 2018, Cadence Grace spent much of the year going through TKI treatments which were ultimately ineffective. As Cadence prepares for a bone marrow transplant - with the risk and costs associated - family and friends are coming together to raise funds to support Cadence during her treatment and recovery period.
'Country Kicks Cancer’s Ass' will support Cadence and her family, while also raising awareness surrounding blood and stem cell donation to help others get a second chance at life.
