Migos member Offset is honoring his late grandmother Sallie Ann Smith, who died of bladder cancer in 2012, by starting a $500,000 fundraiser via the American Cancer Society.
“It was really tough losing my grandma to cancer and one of the hardest things I have dealt with in my life. She motivated me to do my best and go for it; one of my biggest coaches,” said Offset. The 25-year old Lawrenceville, Georgia native hopes to inspire fellow colleagues, friends, business partners and fans to join in the fight with him.
“Losing a loved one to cancer is devastating, and we need to continue to help educate our communities about early detection and screening guidelines. I am incredibly proud of Offset’s desire to help save the lives of others, genuine heart, and talent as an artist,” his mother, Latabia Woodward, said.
