Jason Bonham was amongst the guest musicians who performed with Camp Freddy this past Monday, January 24 at Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California as part of a benefit event to create awareness and raise positive vibes in celebration of breast cancer survivor Carolyne Williams. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be viewed below.

Carolyne Williams is a 27-year-old breast cancer warrior and advocate. After months of being told that her cancer was just a cyst or an infection, Carolyne discovered the worst: that she was diagnosed with malignant Cystosarcoma Phyllodes while having no health insurance from her part-time job. Cystosarcoma Phyllodes is a sarcoma, a very rare type of breast cancer that accounts for less than 1% of breast cancer diagnosis. Phyllodescurrently has no research or support for survivors from the bigger Breast Cancer Foundations, because of its rarity. Phyllodesis is made of connective tissue and blood that forms in the breast that does not respond to chemo or radiation. Sadly, many cases of breast cancer are currently being found in younger girls/women in their teens, 20s and 30s, and in many cases they are being misdiagnosed, as Carolyne was. There needs to be more awareness to this growing and sadly silent epidemic.

This benefit was to help raise awareness and spread hope in the darkness of cancer and its effects on families and friends of the infected. The benefit hoped to raise funds in order to help Carolyne with her disease. This unprecedented and special event included appearances by Camp Freddy featuring Matt Sorum (GGuns'N'Roses, Velvet Revolver), Billy Morrison (Billy Idol, The Cult), Dave Navarro (Jane's Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers), and was hosted by Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath.
