Syrian mega star Assala will give a concert on Friday 10 January at the Hilton Heliopolis Hotel to raise funds for breast cancer patients.
“I love my life and everyone has the right to love life and live it to the fullest because you only get one chance. Let’s sing together to heal, to love, and to live," said Assala, calling on her fans to attend.
"We don’t know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice. Join us to celebrate strength, love, courage and the lives of those fighting through the pain and tears."
With tickets prices for EGP 850, 1,500 and 2,000, all the revenues from the concert, which is organised by the scientific institution for patients with breast tumours and women's BGICs, will be donated to the treatment of cancer patients.
"This year, we are completing the research march on cancer to which women are exposed, and the possibility of providing treatment for them," said BGICs President Hisham Al-Ghazali, professor of oncology at Ain Shams University.
Born in 1969 in Damascus, Assala's three decade-long career brought her high recognition and a large fan base across the Arab region.
