HOLLYWOOD, CA (August 11, 2015) – Monday, August 17th will be an amazing night of rockstars hitting the stage at the World Famous Whisky A Go-Go to raise money for a sweet little girl named Charlotte.
This is a special night not only for Charlotte but also to Phil X (Bon Jovi) and his wonderful wife Lindy. “Both Christine and my wife Lindy were pregnant at the same time,” explains Phil X (Bon Jovi). “When Charlotte was diagnosed with leukemia we felt that helping this little girl we care about to get the proper care – Well, we just knew it was the right thing to do. People need to know about childhood leukemia. It is devastating for a family.” This wonderful girl, who is only 20 months, will require 2 years of chemo.
Phil X called upon his friends to help get this benefit together. Actor/Director Greg Grunberg (Heros/Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will host this night of All-stars – With STEEL PANTHER headlining, Phil X & The Drills (Phil X/Bon Jovi, Randy Cooke/Ringo Starr & Daniel Spree), Richie Kotzen Trio and The Barb Wire Dolls to open.

ABOUT CHILDHOOD LEUKEMIA:
Leukemia is the most common childhood cancer, affecting more than 3,500 children in the U.S. every year. Leukemia affects two types of white blood cells that are responsible for protecting the body from disease: lymphocytes and granulocytes. Leukemias that affect lymphocytes are known as “lymphocytic” or “lymphoblastic,” and those that affect granulocytes are called “myeloid” or “myelogenous” leukemias.
Leukemia is also classified as either acute or chronic.
Acute leukemia: White blood cells are released from the bone marrow into the bloodstream before they mature, where they reproduce rapidly.
Chronic leukemia: The white blood cells are a bit more mature when released from the bone marrow, and multiply at a much slower rate.
