Hard-rock cancer fundraiser in support of Esquimalt man

The family and friends of Tristan Taylor hope an upcoming night of hard rock tune

The family and friends of Tristan Taylor hope an upcoming night of hard rock tunes will benefit the 22-year-old Esquimalt resident who is battling cancer.

Taylor has neuroblastoma and says he is running out of treatment options. He is trying to raise $100,000 for an alternative therapy at the Byrzynski Clinic in Texas. The cost is not covered by B.C.’s Medical Services Plan.

The upcoming fundraiser, featuring local bands Deckard Cain and Sexy Offenders, happens March 10, 7 p.m. to midnight, at the Esquimalt Dockyard branch of the Royal Canadian Legion, 622 Admirals Rd. Ticket holders must be at least 19 years old.

Tickets are $10, and are available at the Legion, in advance or at the door.
