In the latest installment of Rappers Doing Good, Offset has teamed up with the American Cancer Society for a $500K fundraising campaign to help combat the disease.
“I am thankful to be partnering with the American Cancer Society to help save lives against this horrible disease. It’s especially important for me to give some love to my community and do what I can to help,” the Migo says.
Offset’s dedication to the fight against cancer is personal. His inspiration for working with the American Cancer Society is his late grandmother, Sallie Ann Smith, a significant role model in his life who died of bladder cancer in 2012. After Mrs. Smith’s cancer diagnosis, her family learned firsthand about the positive impact the American Cancer Society programs and services make on families.
“It was really tough losing my grandma to cancer and one of the hardest things I have dealt with in my life,” he continued. “She motivated me to do my best and go for it; one of my biggest coaches.”
Offset hosted a launch party yesterday (9/19) at Main Event Entertainment in Atlanta, Georgia, where he spent the day with teens and young adults whose lives have been impacted by cancer.
