Aside from giving us the classics Summer of ’69 and (Everything I Do) I Do It For You, Bryan Adams has used his rock star status to help raise awareness and funds for several charities. Adams, 52, is among celebrities joining the fight against breast cancer, claiming near 40,000 lives each year. The Run to You singer added breast cancer to his list of charitable causes in the late 1990s. Adams combined his love of photography with efforts to raise for breast cancer research.
In 1998, Adams photographed Canadian model Linda Evangelista as part of a promotion for a concert where funds raised were given to a breast cancer clinic in Ontario. That same year, Adams provided a song on a benefit CD to raise funds for breast cancer research. The Cuts Like a Knife singer went on to contribute photos to a book of celebrity and public figures. All royalties the singer earned from the book went to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Adams continues to work today to raise funds for breast cancer and other charities by donating some of the proceeds from his concerts to the cause. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer for women.
