Talal Abu Al Ragheb
A renowned Jordanian composer, has been working on a benefit song to raise awareness for the fight against cancer. His dream is to write a song and produce and direct a music video that will convey a message of hope for cancer patients and draw attention to the disease. Talal's fight against cancer is personal and his story, like thousands of others, is unique, yet dreadfully common. His battle has taken him to the peaks of Mount Everest, a grueling and exhausting journey, not very different from the journey of cancer. It was on the peak of the mountain that the idea of a benefit song in Arabic, sung by musicians from across the region to give hope to cancer patients and raise for cancer treatment, was born.
Talal’s initiative attracted many people, musicians, singers and cancer patient relatives in addition to an individual people due to the need for creating a passionate atmosphere around cancer patients and remind the other healthy people of their role to contribute in defeating this disease by spreading love and hope to stand up against the second fatal disease in Jordan.
This initiative is to show that joining a movement to defeat disease is not always about donating money, it’s all about being aware that we have different roles in our life that can change and improve the situation if each one of us believed that they can something even if it was a little thing.
