Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach Releases Shirt To Raise Money for Aunt’s Cancer Treatment
Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach's aunt is battling bile duct cancer, and the singer has teamed up with his bandmates to help raise money for her treatments.
Leach came up with the concept for the shirt you see pictured, and bassist Mike D'Antonio designed it. Not only is it a great looking shirt, if you buy you'll be helping support a worthy cause.
All proceeds from the sale of the shirt will go to Leach's aunt for her cancer treatment. The shirt can be ordered here.
Leach posted the following message on the band's Facebook:
Cancer is a disease that effects so many of us. Recently it has impacted my family as my Aunt has been diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer). She is in need of a great deal of money to get the treatment she needs and I want to do anything I can to help. I reached out to my brothers in the band and asked if they would help my family raise some funds...of course they agreed. I came up with a concept for a t-shirt and Mike D designed it. We are proud to offer this to you the fans as a labor of love and a unique one of a kind design for a great cause. All proceeds for this shirt will go to help my aunt get the treatment she needs. Thank you all in advance for supporting this most worthy cause.
