In the wake of a recent publicity storm surrounding Andrew Youssef’s medical condition, music fans and friends of the photographer have applied their collective power to helping the man and bringing attention to his fight with cancer.
As reported by the OC Weekly, Youssef is currently fighting Stage IV colon cancer. Known for his coverage of live events, he didn’t let his 2011 diagnosis stop him from covering over 300 events since. A recent song dedication made by the Nine Inch Nails brought further attention to Youssef and inspired fans to create a Facebook group in support of the photographer. A PayPal account has also been created for donations, the proceeds of which go to the Youssef family to assist with the costs of Andrew’s treatment.
