BOC's Fight Against Cancer

$72,760 of $100,000 goal

Created July 17, 2017
Brian O'Connor (aka BOC) needs our help and support. 

BOC was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in 2010 and has been battling it ever since.  Through the years he has been forced to give up touring and even more recently stop doing the odd jobs that have helped support him as he stayed close to home, his family, and his physicians.  His most recent medical scans have determined that Brian is in need of more aggressive chemo and radiation treatment, so we are looking to his friends, family, and fans for support.

If you know Brian you know he has led a thousand lives from growing up in family band, The Country Bugs, felling trees in the great northwest, touring the world and playing for hundreds of thousands in The Eagles of Death Metal, being a father, a son, a friend, a mentor, and an inspiration. Odds are, Brian has touched your life in some way.

It is our privilege as a community to take care of our neighbor, so if he's ever melted your face with his bass, or you've had the distinct opportunity to have the time of your life at his Joshua Tree compound, or very simply been on the receiving end of one of his signature bear hugs, we're asking you to lend a hand as best you can now.

Any donations will help with the costs of past medical bills, upcoming rounds of treatment and daily living expenses.
Please give anything you can.  Any amount can make a difference.

Thank you.
BOC's family and friends

We want to extend a big THANK YOU to each and every one of you for your support--BOC's friends and family, his fans, and the friends of those close to him-we see each one of you, and are so grateful!

BOC is back and forth between the Dez and LA and will be back in LA next week for radiation and chemo, so send him your love. He has recently been placed on a list for 2 trial drugs and immunotherapy, so fingers crossed that he is chosen and more updates as they come.

Next month, there will be a benefit at Pappy and Harriet's in Pioneertown for BOC to further reach our goal. Please join us for a night of amazing music by BOC's friends on September 16 . Tickets available at

All Our Love!!

THANK YOU for getting BOC halfway to our goal! We are blown away by the generosity of BOC's Amazing community of family and friends!

BOC started radiation this week and is in LA for the time being as he goes through treatments. His spirits are up and he is so humbled by everyone's contributions. Please send him well wishes as he starts his chemo and we will keep you all updated on his progress.

Please join us Friday night at Pizzanista in DTLA for a night of Pizza, Drinks, and an amazing benefit full of travel packages, tattoos, art, food, skate and music goodies and SO much more to further benefit the medical fund. BOC may come Friday depending on how he is doing, but we hope to see everyone there! ALL OUR LOVE!
