Cancer Takedown 2023
Cancer Takedown is a 'spirit-raiser' for anyone touched by cancer. It shines a light on the mental burden of cancer and unites people through song, story and solidarity. Featuring incredible performances by: Melissa Payne, Kate Suhr, Linda Kash, Megan Murphy, Anthony Bastianon, Rob Phillips and Pol Coussée. Also including people sharing their cancer stories. All proceeds go to Cancer Care at the Peterborough Regional Health Centre.
The event was founded by husband and wife team Rick and Amy Kemp. 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.
“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.”
