Sammy Hagar‘s Acoustic-4-A-Cure has raised a $100,000 for the pediatric cancer program at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in San Francisco. Acoustic-4-A-Cure features performance by John Mayer, METALLICA‘s James Hetfield, Tommy Lee from MÖTLEY CRÜE, Joe Satriani, Pat Monahan from TRAIN, and Melissa Etheridge.
Sammy told The Pulse Of Radio: “This lady is building immune systems through diet and through vitamin therapy and stuff that are extending their lives. Because these children have strong immune systems if she could just get it back going again. And she’s squeezing 10, 12, 14 years out of some children and so I’m supporting her. And how I’m supporting her is I get her $100,000 a year for two assistants so that she could spend more time in the lab and less time doing interviews and filling out paperwork. Just to put money into cancer research there’s so much money going into cancer research and it’s a tough one. This lady I think has got a handle on something and I want to give her a good shot at it.”
