Papa Carl from House Of Shem is suffering bowel cancer

Music 15/03/2017

It's with great saddness we share the news that the great Papa Carl from House Of Shem is suffering through terminal bowel cancer.

Over the years, Carl & House Of Shem have provided us with some sweet tunes and provided some of our favourite songs.

Right now whanau, we are sharing a link to Papa Carl's GiveALittle page.

The page is to help support Carl and his family through his journey with terminal bowel cancer.

Carl is a husband, a dad to five boys, a granddad and a great grandad to some beautiful tamariki.

He started his reggae career in the legendary band, HERBS and is now in the reggae band House Of Shem.

At just 58, Carl was diagnosed with this deadly disease that unfortunately affects so many of us Kiwis.

If you have the spare cash to help another whanau, especially the whanau from this legendary Kiwi reggae artist who has touched so many with his music over the years, then we would greatly appreciate the support.

You can donate to Carl and his family's journey here.

Kia kaha Perkins whanau.
