Tony Terry: R&B Singer and Fibromyalgia Caregiver, to Perform at National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, May 15 at Cal State Fullerton


R&B singer Tony Terry, whose wife, Ronnie has fibromyalgia, will perform a special concert at the National Fibromyalgia Association’s (NFA) National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day on Saturday, May 15 at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF). Terry will perform during the “Lights of Hope” candle-lighting ceremony starting at 7:30 pm.

Anaheim, CA, April 09, 2010 --(PR.com)-- R&B singer Tony Terry, will perform a special concert at the National Fibromyalgia Association’s (NFA) National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day on Saturday, May 15 at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF). Terry will perform during the “Lights of Hope” candle-lighting ceremony starting at 7:30 pm.

Terry, whose wife Ronnie, has fibromyalgia, is the NFA’s new spokesperson. He is hoping to bring awareness of fibromyalgia by telling his own story as a caregiver, husband and father. Last November he appeared on the “Mo’nique” show, where he talked about fibromyalgia and advised others who may be caring for a loved one with chronic pain illnesses. An in-depth profile on Terry and his family is featured in the latest issue of FM Aware magazine, scheduled for release in late April.

At the concert on May 15, Terry will also debut a new song from the National Fibromyalgia Association dedicated especially to the over 10 million people affected by fibromyalgia in the U.S. and 3-5 percent worldwide.

The free concert and “Lights of Hope” ceremony will close the NFA’s day-long activities at Cal State Fullerton, which also include a Wellness Fair, educational seminars, and 1K and 5K “Walk of Fame.”
