I was diagnosed with bladder cancer this past March. I had surgery to remove my tumor on March 16th and spent Saturday (St. Patty's Day) March 17th 2018 in the hospital recovering, feeling miserable and in a lot of pain. That was nothing, I found out, because after that I did almost 3 months of Chemotherapy. Chemo almost killed me and I felt like I was dying a few times there. I am now doing Immunotherapy and I am feeling great. I also do natural treatments which have no negative side effects. The natural treatments are expensive and out of pocket , but I am determined to beat this cancer. In fact , I know I will beat this cancer. Could you help? I am holding a fundraiser concert on St. Patty's Day , Sunday March 17th 2019 from 1pm to 8pm at The Temple Fire Company Ballroom in Temple , PA. Please sponsor, donate or attend. Thank You! Sincerely, Chris Haas

Q: Why the name Pogue Mahone?
A: I was diagnosed with Cancer and I had surgery to remove my tumor the day before St. Patty's Day. Spending St. Patty's Day in the hospital was depressing as everyone else got to celebrate. Just one pint of Guinness would have picked me up a bit. Honestly , my friends and family picked me up and made me feel a lot better while I was in the hospital a few days. I always loved the band the Pogues named after the Gaelic (Irish) phrase Pog Mo Thoin (pronounced and spelled phonetically Pogue Mahone) which means "Kiss My Ass". I believe in Fighting Cancer and healing with the Attitude "Kiss My Ass Cancer!". That is how Pogue Mahone Cancer was born. May you , your friends and family members with Cancer be able to Fight back and say "Pogue Mahone Cancer!"
