When Crisis Talks asked me to cover there live benefit show for ovarian cancer I jumped at the chance to document something special. It was a great turnout at Newports fairly new venue Slipping Jimmys.

Lead singer and front man Dave Merrick decided to organise the event as he has a personal connection with his partner being diagnosed with ovarian cancer last year. Unfortunately she wasn't able to attend the show on doctors advice not to be in crowds because of a weaker immune system. The guys played a solid set and Dave also read a poem written by Helen, I have to say it was pretty moving and I had a few tears to try and hide.

They raised a lot of money for the cause which hopefully will help fight this horrible disease that affects so many. I have so much admiration for the brave men and women that battle cancer and the video will be up soon so you can watch it yourself.  It would be great if you could support the cause, so get over to either Cancer Research UK or Target Ovarian Cancer and make a difference.
