Classical concert in Thame for Lymphoma Action

A singer from Princes Risborough is holding a classical concert to raise money for the Aylesbury based charity.

Lymphoma Action is the only charity in the UK dedicated to supporting anyone affected by lymphoma, the fifth most common cancer in the UK.

The concert titled 'Songs of Loss and Love' will see Soprano Sara Kalic joined by pianist Duncan Aspden to perform a range of classical songs.

Songs of Love & Loss

Sara is supporting the charity after her husband was diagnosed with Burkitt's Lymphoma in his early thirties:

"It was a huge shock, and a very difficult time for us all, we are blessed that he has now been in remission for almost seven years and although he is still physically recovering from the after effects of what happened to him, he is now a father to two beautiful children and leading a relatively normal life. We are looking forward to the concert, and by donating some of our proceeds to Lymphoma Action, we are offering our support to those affected by lymphoma who may be going through an experience similar to our own"

Sarah Thorn, Community and Partnerships Manager at Lymphoma Action said:

"We are really grateful to Sara and her family for their support" 

"Every 27 minutes one of us is diagnosed with lymphoma, and it is actually the most common cancer in young adults. Through funds raised by people like Sara we can continue to make sure everyone affected by the condition receives the best possible information, support, treatment and care so that no one has to face lymphoma alone."

'Songs of Loss and Love' starts at 7.30pm at St Mary's Church in Thame. Doors will open at 6.45pm and you can still purchase tickets in advance here or on the door the evening of the concert.
