Hip Hop 'Til It Stops

$5,235 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 64 people in 4 months
I am raising money to show my daughter Noémie that anything is possible if you really want it. She has recently been diagnosed with cancer (Hodgkins Lymphoma) and she is currently going through a pretty rough chemo treatment plan.  Each week is tougher than the one before and in order to get through it, she expressed the need to have something to look for. Because she is very courageous, positive and resilient, she has no doubt about the final outcome of this battle. In order to prepare for her upcoming victory, scheduled for some time in the spring of 2019, she would like to organize a Hip Hop concert to celebrate life and thank everyone who supported her during this tough year. She also wanted to use this event to raise funds for research and make a donation of any profits to the hospital and team that is currently taking care of her and many other patients.

Her plan was to hire local Hip Hop talent and rent a venue to hold this event. As the true go-getter she is, she started contacting agents and venue managers only to realize that this was a bit more complicated than she thought when you don't have the initial funds to support the upfront fixed costs.

And so, with the treatment side-effects taking their toll, and the complicated logistics of organizing such an event, her project is slowly becoming more than she can manage. As any father would do, I would like to take the relay and make this happen.  Help us celebrate a win over cancer and support future research... Hip Hop is currently the soundtrack of her battle. We want to make it the sound of victory too.

Thanks in advance

Hi everyone !

First, thanks again for supporting my daughter's project. Here's a quick update.

Noémie has finished her chemotherapy treatments a few days ago and she is relieved that this part is now behind her. More tests are scheduled over the next few weeks to determine next steps. The only really unpleasant thing happening right now is that they have noticed some blood clots in her arm due to the permanent pick line she had during chemo. Not a huge medical problem, but it still means injections every day for the next 90 days... So that's it for the medical update.

What about the big project ? The hip hop concert ? That is going extremely well. We have booked the artist, Mike Shabb. Check him out, he is really good and a big rising star ! We have a venue too, Le Zaricot, a bar which is graciously supporting us by offering the room and technical equipment for free. We have just begun selling tickets yesterday and this step makes it all very real ! The event is scheduled for May 29th.

Thanks to all of you and your generous support, Noémie has been able to have something to focus on for the last few months, other than her health. It made a huge difference and it also proves that when you really want something and put the efforts, more things are possible than you realize.

Based on current donations, predicted revenues from the show and after a few expenses, Noémie will have a nice amount (at least $5,000) to offer to the center that treated her. She has received excellent care and this should be something available to everyone. By the way, we have used a small portion of the donations to support a struggling cancer patient that we know in Colombia. Felt very rewarding to see the rapid and tangible effect it had on this person and it made us wonder what else we could do for more patients. We are still thinking about donating the proceeds of this campaign to the hospital, but we are not ruling out something even more concrete and patient-centric that would last longer. A foundation ? A support group ? Not sure yet, but we take your donations seriously and our intent is to get the biggest return for the most people with this money. One thing is for sure, we will keep you in the loop so you can see what's happening with every dime.

Thanks again for your support, you are all wonderful human beings - and yes, you are making a difference !
