The second annual Cancer Takedown will be presented Thursday, November 9 at Market Hall Performing Arts Centre, featuring incredible performances by Melissa Payne, Kate Suhr, Linda Kash, Megan Murphy, Anthony Bastianon, Rob Phillips and Pol Coussée.
Cancer Takedown is a spirit-raiser for anyone touched by cancer as much as a fundraiser in support of cancer care at PRHC. Founded by husband and wife team Rick and Amy Kemp, it shines a light on the mental burden of cancer and unites people through song, story and solidarity.
Rick has been a patient of PRHC since 2019, when he was diagnosed with metastatic kidney cancer. In May 2021, his battle doubled as he was diagnosed with a second primary cancer, CNS lymphoma. He says, “The goal of Cancer Takedown is twofold. One is to raise funds. The other is to raise spirits for those battling cancer and the people helping them in their journey.”
Tickets are available from the Market Hall box office by phone at 705-775-1503, in-person at 140 Charlotte St. – 3rd floor, Peterborough, or online. And don’t miss the Cancer Takedown 2023 video with local legends Linda Kash and Megan Murphy!
