Wonderful post from Reeves on Facebook:
"last weekend, thanks to the teenage cancer trust (tct), roger daltrey
and royal albert hall – where i played two benefit shows for great
audiences with my bandmates in the cure -- i had the wonderful
opportunity to visit with two groups of teenagers from all over the u.k.
who are at different stages in their fight with cancer. some are just
beginning the fight... others are victorious and already giving back
energy to their brothers and sisters in battle.
on saturday afternoon,
i was invited to watch the tct gang perform 2 songs they had written
about their time with the disease. it was an incredibly moving
experience, made more powerful by their joy, bravery and determination
in the face of the big C.
that is why we were performing... that is what put the fire and heart in our performances.
we played for all those that were there, all those we met and those we may never meet.
thank you teenage cancer trust for the honour and opportunity to help in some small way.
