OZZY OSBOURNE And TONY IOMMI Helping With Cancer Research

September 20, 2004

BLACK SABBATH members Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi took part in an all-star signing of an Epiphone Tony Iommi Signature G-400 electric guitar. All of the members of BLACK SABBATH signed the Epiphone guitar which was scheduled to be auctioned at the Huntsman Cancer Institute Golf Classic in Salt Lake City, Utah August 12-13, 2004. Photos of Osbourne and Iommi with the guitar can be viewed here.

All proceeds from the event are used to further Huntsman Cancer Institute's mission of expanding the understanding, treatment and prevention of cancer. Research at the Huntsman Cancer Institute ranges from sub-cellular studies of the way cells communicate with each other to populate studies that track the incidence of certain forms of cancer across large populations. Organized into specific cancer-focused teams, the Institute's physicians and scientists are able to share different perspectives on the causes, treatment and prevention of these diseases. This approach results in a more rapid translation of laboratory discoveries into improved treatments.
