ron peno recoveringMusic industrty charity Support Act has launched an appeal to support Died Pretty frontman Ron Peno through his new battle against cancer.

Peno was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in 2019 and after multiple treatments, major surgery and rehabilitation,  the cancer has moved to his brain.

Ron’s partner, Charity, is his primary caregiver. With rises in the cost of living and inflation everywhere, it’s become a struggle to provide around-the-clock care, maintain a steady income and keep on top of living costs.

Support Act's Help A Mate appeal is targeted to cover rent bills, essential utilities, groceries, transport, in-home support services, and much-needed medication. Peno’s cancer has affected his ability to work and stay on top of the cost of living. 

Donations of more than $2 are tax deductibile and can be made here.
