Offset Kicks Off $500k Cancer Fundraiser
One-third of the Migos is set to help raise money for cancer research. Offset will be helping the American Cancer Society raise $500,000 to promote cancer prevention. The organization shared the big news via social media.
"Rapper @offsetyrn, of the chart-topping hip-hop trio @Migos, is raising $500,000 for our organization. He is honoring his grandmother by raising funds to help promote cancer prevention and access to care in underserved communities. In addition, money raised through this effort will also help fund an ACS Research Grant focused on bladder cancer research. #ACSxOffset."
Offset also shared a special message on their website about donating and doing it for the culture.
"Hey, how you doin'? It's Offset, one-third of the Migos. I'm here to raise $500K for the American Cancer Society to help the underserved communities, the people who don't have as many opportunities or the money or the costs. Could you please help me get this task done? Do it for the culture."
Like many others, someone very close to Offset was diagnosed with cancer. In 2012, he lost his grandmother to the horrible disease.
“It was really tough losing my grandma to cancer and one of the hardest things I have dealt with in my life. She motivated me to do my best and go for it; one of my biggest coaches," he said.
