Bee Gees star Robin Gibb is a trooper. Despite battling cancer, he is determined to perform at a concert supporting British soldiers next month. His doctors approved the performance, set for Feb. 13.
Gibb had previously signed up to perform at the Coming Home charity gig, in honor of British soldiers serving abroad. He feared he would be too ill to fulfill his commitment, since he is receiving chemo for his liver cancer.
However, Gibb told the Daily Mirror, "I'm looking forward to appearing if possible and being able to continue my support for our service men and women. We owe a debt of gratitude to the dedication and professionalism of our armed forces." Seriously, what a great critizen Robin Gibb is.
A source shared, "Quite simply, it is a miracle Robin is able to perform. He is still incredibly weak and sleeping up to 14 hours a day. Robin will be literally dragging himself out of bed to do this gig. He is passionate about the charity and wants to do his bit. Our soldiers are modern day heroes but as far as they are concerned, Robin's efforts against the odds are every bit as heroic. It'll be an incredibly emotional evening."
The singer is hoping to raise $80,000 for a charity which aids wounded soldiers in Britain.
