‘Cancer Interrupted’ concert to benefit cancer victims and their families

June 19, 2014 

— A benefit concert for cancer victims and their families will take place at 6 p.m. Sunday at The Lord’s Church, 1657 North Market Drive in Raleigh.

The event, “Cancer Interrupted,” will feature gospel music from at least seven local singers and informational booths on places to get screened or treated for cancer.

Raleigh resident Sanina Barber organized the event in honor of her father, who will be the host for the evening. Her dad was diagnosed with stomach cancer a year ago and is now cancer-free.

“God gave me the vision to do this Cancer Interrupted event for anybody,” Barber said. “The purpose of this event is to really uplift the children and male and female adults to know it’s not the end. They will survive and they will make it.”

The event is free, but donations will be accepted. Proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society. For more information, call Barber at 919-491-5021 or go to www.gofundme.com/9a95zk
