JASON ALDEAN has been doing a lot to raise awareness for breast cancer research for the past 13 years. His best friend lost his wife to the disease back in 2004, when she was in her early thirties.
So for his tour starting at the end of April, he's offering breast cancer survivors the chance to be an "honorary roadie" again. At select shows, a breast cancer survivor and their guest get tickets, VIP backstage access, and a private meet and greet. Jason basically rolls out the red carpet for them, and gives them the royal treatment. They have dinner with him and everyone putting the show together, hang out, see the concert . . . the whole bit.
He also donates a portion of each ticket to the Komen foundation. Just go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation website at komen.org/Jason-Aldean to enter or nominate someone. He says, quote, "As long as I'm doing what I'm doing, I will do what I can to fight breast cancer and celebrate its survivors . . . we're going to treat as many survivors as we can this year with a night out to take their minds off everything else."
