FCKCNCR in Hamburg came up with a unique idea in support of cancer research. In an effort to draw attention to cancer disease and to free it of taboos, the founder of the company produced hand made bracelets. As of February they can be purchased on the online-shop specifically created for this purpose. All sales proceeds go to the German Cancer Research Center. In this way 6,400 EUR have been raised up until now.

Click here to go to the online-shop, where you can order your bracelet. You will find further information under FCKCNCR on Facebook.   

We are very pleased that FCKCNCR is supporting the German Cancer Research Center, and we wish it much success in its campaign.

For the last four years the band "Lady's Voice" has been actively engaged for cancer research. In 2011, Danny Konz, lead singer of the band "Danny and the Boys", initiated this impressive fundraising campaign. In collaboration with female vocalists from the Karlsruhe, Pforzheim, Baden-Baden and Bühl region, she recorded the song "Give us your voice" specially composed fort this occasion and placed it on the Internet with a call for donations. The ten singers also sang in pedestrian zones to gather contributions.  Altogether, 12,000 EUR was raised. Half of the money went to the Initiative For Children With Cancer "Stelzenmännchen" in Karlsruhe and the other half to the German Cancer Research Center. On the second fundraising campaign the following year her music colleague Andi Deris (Helloween) actively stood at her side and donated a new song "AnEmoria". By the fundraising deadline on Dec 2013, 28,000 EUR had been raised to benefit the German Cancer Research Center and the children's hospice in Karlsruhe. And there is more to come. The singers in the band continue to remain active during their numerous concerts and campaigns, calling out for donations.

Meanwhile, the fourth fundraising campaign is currently underway.

An exceptional football game took place on Pentecost Sunday at the SV Weisenheim am Sand sports grounds. Andreas Stoebner, a former member of the team, brought together numerous players for a benefit football game. All of the proceeds on that day, including the salary of the band that played at the end of the game, were donated to cancer research. Altogether 2,025 euro was raised. This was made possible only through the aid of numerous participants including the restaurant "Ionio" in Weisenheim am Sand and the group "Le Petit Jardin". Our thanks goes out to Andreas Stoebner and all of the other people who made donations!

Curiosity ran high among the regulars at Jameson Distillery Pubs in Köln: How would Craig Fyfe the Barkeeper look without his magnificent facial hairs?
For a donation of 1,000 EUR for the German Cancer Research Center Craig Fyfe was prepared to disclose the secret. Finally a contribution of 3,210.69 EUR was raised. And – as if it were not enough, the donations continued so that all together 3,400 EUR was raised for cancer research. Our heartfelt thanks to all supporters and donators! And special thanks to Craig Fyfe for his courage to strip his face bare!
