Chuck Dauphin - November 2017
Since being diagnosed with cancer, Sheryl Crow has lent her time and talents to a variety of cancer-related causes, organizations, and events. This year, Crow gears up to participate in An Evening with Scott Hamilton & Friends, which benefits Hamilton's CARES Foundation helping cancer patients and survivors learn to navigate their diagnosis. Hamilton established the CARES Foundation through the Cleveland Clinic where he had been treated.
This will be the second annual event and the performers are gearing up. By bringing together their passions of music and ice skating, the evening will be filled with fun live entertainment for a great cause. As two cancer survivors themselves, Crow and Hamilton are aware of the toll the disease takes on the patient, but also the family and friends. Crow explains that her family is one of the biggest reasons she gives back to others as they go through their battles with cancer. She recalls "when you get diagnosed, your family and friends get diagnosed as well...it introduces you to your mortality."
Hamilton and Crow are showing that not only can you continue doing the work you love after cancer, but you can also work to give back to others who are going through similar battles.
