Help Marcus BEAT Cancer!!!

UPDATE: Marcus is getting ready for another sugery to BEAT cancer!! Please step up to help for the first time or again to let him know we've got his back!!

We all know our great friend Marcus “Big Daddy” McQuade as a larger than life, ultra positive, huge hearted personality. He is a father, grandfather, and as we all know, one of the most talented musicians in the North West. As a friend, he is a place where anyone with any problem can go for understanding and compassion. He’s been there for all of us at one time or another.... and now it’s our turn to step up to help.

Marcus was recently diagnosed with Colon Cancer, that has already spread to his liver, and he has not only accepted this new fight but embraced it with all his being. Marcus will fight several battles in the larger war against this cancer, and he will WIN!

While he’s taking them all head on, one place we can help is easing the financial stress of being out of work to rest during and after chemo treatments. Marcus is working as much and as often as his body will allow him (and we know how stubborn he can be!)

Let’s rally together and show our dear friend that we’re always with him, and that we HAVE HIS BACK! #FuckCancer #BattleOnBigDaddy

Donors who make a contribution of $100 or more will receive a T-shirt that says "I helped Big Daddy Battle On!".

From Marcus: Please understand that though I would love to offer everyone who contributes, a gift, it is just not financially feasible. Please know that to say I am appreciative or humbled by your kindness, in no way reflects the absolute gratitude I feel and does not begin to say "Thank You" enough!
