ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This song is being released in aid of The Knock On Effect, a fundraising business, which raises money to help those affected by cancer. The following words are taken from The Knock On Effect, which was set up by Rosie Kilburn.

Luckily, cancer is already on predictive text ....

In April 2009, Rosie Kilburn wrote her first blog post:

“My name is Rosie Kilburn, I’m 17 and I have cancer.

. . . a few months ago I started thinking. . . What can I actually do with this cancer stuff? I mean, I have quite a strong story right? 17 year old fighting cancer, pull on your heart strings blahblah, surely there has got to be something that I could use my influence to do...I wanted to do something long term. So I was sitting in that hospital waiting room and I decided to hold an auction. An art auction”

The auction raised £10,000 to start production of a range of t-shirts, the main message of which is to stand up and fight back against cancer. To be a victor and not a victim.

“I hate hearing about people and their families who get diagnosed with cancer and just revert into themselves and completely change who they are because of how cancer has got them down. I want to change that perception. Be proud that you are a right trouper, don’t consider yourself as weak.”

Rosie developed a sustainable, non-profit business selling wearable art in the form of T-shirts. Her aim was to break the taboo of cancer by getting people to talk about it. She wanted to promote the message that cancer is not about the suffering, it’s about the surviving.
