Rick Wakeman: Lends his support to young girl fighting aggressive cancer.


Music legend Rick Wakeman has lent his support to little Ruby Young, who is fighting a very aggressive cancer.
The former keyboard player with the band Yes helped on a video which has been made about Ruby and her family as they work to raise £500,000 for life-saving treatment.
Rick, who has also made music with the likes of David Bowie, Black Sabbath and Cat Stevens, worked alongside film-maker Andy Humphreys for the Ruby Roo video and donated the use of a track from one of his albums for the backing sound.
The 65-year-old said: “I am delighted to help Ruby and her family. The efforts so far undertaken by the Ruby Roo fundraising team, the people of Medway and beyond is a fantastic achievement.
“I hope that my support and that of film-maker Andy Humphreys helps them achieve that aim. Ruby is a fabulous little girl who deserves a chance to survive.
“I urge everybody to go online to the Ruby Roo Facebook page and pledge as much as they can. Every pound helps.”
Rick’s support follows that of One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson. The singer sent his own personal message of support for Ruby over Twitter on Tuesday and it was retweeted more than 60,000 times.
