IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM THE FAMILY:
Following the success of his TIkTok and Youtube fundraising - Piano Grandad, my dad, has been himself diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer. He is undergoing a 6 hour operation today (8th June 2021) and we are hoping to reach his target of £10,000 donations by the time he wakes up. Please donate even a few pounds. As he says "its not IF we find a cure, its WHEN" how quickly is up to all us.
“I started teaching myself the piano aged 12, after I was evacuated from London during WW2. When my wife died from Ovarian cancer I started fundraising for Cancer Research UK through live piano performances. I have 5 children and 14 grandchildren and we all miss her very much.
After lockdown started my grand-daughter helped me take my performances onto TikTok as Grandad_Pianist. None of us expected this to take off so well and I am bemused and blown away by the generosity, likes, 50,000 followers and 1 million views. I hope you enjoy what I do and if you can, donate in memory of the millions of people lost to cancer every year. If each of the viewers had donated just £1 we would have half a million pounds for Cancer Research by now! Thank you for your support and whatever you can afford to give”.
