Rock concert aids cancer research
Date:1/18/2011

Rock legends The Who performed alongside Jeff Beck, Blondie singer Debbie Harry and The Verve's Richard Ashcroft. They wowed a packed house and glittering list of celebrities to raise funds for PDT.

The work carried out by Dr. Alison Curnow and her team at the Peninsula Medical School and Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro, UK, was given an immediate grant from the Killing Cancer charity of 30,000, which came from the proceeds of the concert.

Dr. Curnow commented: "The Peninsula Medical School PDT research team and the very busy dermatology PDT service led by Dr. Sandra Campbell at the Royal Cornwall Hospital are delighted with the generous support provided by Killing Cancer. It was a fantastic show and this funding will enable us to continue our clinical PDT research for another year. PDT is still a relatively little know light-activated anti-cancer drug therapy that can be used topically to destroy certain types of skin cancer without scarring."

David Longman, director of Killing Cancer, added: "Alison's team is doing amazing work in Cornwall. The concert was a great success and it was good to be able to make an immediate grant to recognise quickly the way Alison and her team are developing the use of PDT. The charity and the rock legends who supported us wanted to recognise the incredible research work, dedication and determination of Alison and her team."
