Artists sign up for cancer campaign

Local artists have signed up to be part of the Hospital Poroman Foundation Shave, Trim or Dye (Colour) Your Hair for Cancer Campaign.

PNG's leading guitarist Adrian 'Sledge' Gedisa, drummer John Hakalits, male singer Twin Tribe’s Radley Lavaiamat and female singer Mereani Masani are ambassadors of the campaign.

Gedisa is coloring his dreads pink for the cancer campaign.

He has chosen pink because of his mother in-law who lost her battle to breast cancer in 1997.

Radley supports this campaign with the aim to reduce the statistics of people suffering from cancer.

The foundation is overjoyed to have PNG elite musicians frontline the campaign as ambassadors for its fundraising drive.

Athletes have also joined the campaign including PNG Pukpuks representatives Manu Guise, Billy Torea and Titi Gigimat and the players of National Soccer League team FC Port Moresby.

YumiFM radio personality Kasty has shaved half his head for K12, 000.

HPF chairman Charlie Gorogo encouraged the public during the launch last week to participate in this worthy course by fundraising within their own personal networks to help save a life.

The campaign runs until 12 December to raise funds for the Children's Cancer Ward at the Port Moresby General Hospital.

The campaign ambassadors have invited others to come on board to support the campaign and raise funds for children living with cancer.
