Ryan Anthony, regarded as one of the greatest trumpet virtuosos ever, was only 42 years old when he was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and given just months to live. Faced with an uncertain future and an unending uphill battle full of hospital stays, chemotherapy treatments and blood transfusions, Ryan continued to share his talent with audiences around the world through solo performances, master classes and concerts. Not only that, he and his wife, Niki, created “CancerBlows”, a charity which has raised millions for cancer research since 2015.
Song For Hope is a story about living life to the fullest, about the unwavering strength and support of family and friends and about one man’s refusal to allow his affliction to affect his love of his art.
