F*ck Cancer x Notes4Hope
Released on October 4th is the second edition of F*ck Cancer, a hazy IPA brewed with Idaho 7, Mosaic and Citra hops. This beer was created in collaboration with Ghost Town Brewing and Canyon Club Brewery to support the work of Notes4Hope, a non-profit organization that builds community around the healing power of music to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research and prevention initiatives. Read more to learn how you can support.
We teamed up with Ghost Team Brewing and Canyon Club Brewery to brew two distinct versions of F*ck Cancer, one of which is available here at Del Cielo. Having had friends and family members affected by breast cancer, this cause was important for us to shine a light on.
We believe in partnering with others that do great work and are passionate about what they do. Being able to brew a beer and partner with the team at Notes4Hope allows us to support their work, while learning more about how to best support breast cancer patients in their health journey.
Notes4Hope is a non-profit organization founded by Sandy and Mark. After enduring a long 2 year journey of fighting cancer and multiple removal and treatment surgeries, she was deemed cancer free in 2011. Shortly after, her friends and family threw her a surprise “FUCANCER” party, which included a live band with lots of friends.
Sandy believed that the support and love she received from friends and family helped her heal, along with the power of music. From that moment, a group of them decided to make things official and created Notes4hope to organize benefit concerts to support other families fighting the same fight. Not only does their team organize benefit concerts, they also provide Wellness & Recovery Kits for cancer patients and offer extensive research on toxic chemical-free products.
