Rock Music Event Aims To Raise Awareness Of UK Fibromyalgia Sufferers
Wednesday 3 April 2019
From UK news outlet CheshireLive:
Rock music event aims to raise awareness of Chester fibromyalgia sufferers
Rock Off Fibro aims to help sufferers of the debilitating disease
A music event that aims to raise awareness of the debilitating disease fibromyalgia takes place in Chester this month.
Each year David Williams organises a concert in Chester in aid of sufferers of the chronic pain disorder that his wife Jackie has been suffering from for six years.
She was just 43 when she was diagnosed with the incurable condition that causes muscle stiffness and constant pain all over the body with profound fatigue, disturbed sleep and a myriad of other difficult symptoms.
Ever since, David, who is Jackie's full time carer, has made it his mission to raise awareness and funds through the Rock Off Fibro event, which brings together a number of bands giving up their time for free.
All proceeds will go towards raising money for a fibromyalgia focused centre which will be the first of its kind in the UK.
This year's festival takes place on Saturday, April 27 at G21 at The Saddle Inn on Grosvenor Street in Chester and features performances from Scottish goth rock band Gothzilla, Liverpool blues singer Dan Wilson and The Counterfactuals and the North Wales rock band Bad Earth.
Also on the bill are Bolton musicians Bard Company and punk festival favourite Headsticks.
