Dan Fogelberg passed away from prostate cancer 10 years ago, December 16th, 2007. We will miss him dearly. We are blessed to have his music to live on, sharing his talent with the world.
It was December 17th, 2007 when Joe Ed Coffman (in pain of losing his favorite singer/songwriter to cancer) started calling musicians - Bob Hopkins and Woody Key - about putting together a concert benefit to play Dan's music, and raise money for prostate cancer awareness.
Their first tribute concert was 2008 at the Amarillo Globe News Center, Texas. The concerts and dream continues raising over $300,000 in 10 years, and hosting Free PSA Blood Test to men in the Amarillo Panhandle. This allows men to be flagged - early detection for prostate cancer can save men's lives.
Thank you to all those who have kept Dan's music alive, and help in continuing his quest - "to defeat prostate cancer."
