The Red Hot Chili Peppers, No Doubt and The Offspring are collecting merchandise and memorabilia to auction off to help fund fellow California rocker Allen Shellenberger’s brain tumor battle.
Lit star Shellenberger, 39, was diagnosed with a grade four malignant brain tumor at the beginning of the summer and is currently undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments at the Cedars-Sinai Maxine Dunitz Neurosurgical Institute in Los Angeles.
And the stars are lining up to offer signed clothing, equipment and memorabilia for an upcoming auction, which will help fund Shellenberger’s medical costs.
The Make A Noise Foundation is sponsoring an auction through Ebay’s Giving Works Program to help offset Allen’s medical costs. All proceeds will benefit Allen Shellenberger and Cedars-Sinai’s Maxine Dunitz Neurosurgical Institute in Los Angeles.
The four members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers have signed a copy of their Stadium Arcadium album for the auction, while No Doubt are selling off an autographed amplifier.
Shellenberger’s bandmates have offered to auction off dinner with a fan, and former James Bond Pierce Brosnan has handed over one of his paintings for the online sale, in addition to merchandise donated and/or signed by Donna Summer, the Offspring, Judd Apatow, James Taylor, Nickelback, Maroon 5, and more. The auction is currently underway on eBay.com.
