The Real Me follows the stories of young songwriters and performers with cancer who found hope, healing and connection through music.

Presented by Teen Cancer America, the national non-profit founded by rock icons Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who, “The Real Me” highlights the moving experiences of cancer patients in TCA’s Play It Back program, which matches them with music professionals to write, perform and record fully produced studio versions of their original songs.

Up this week...Patrick!

Patrick Eck grew up in a musical tribe surrounded by a brother and close friends with whom he immersed himself in music playing guitar in numerous bands. His love of progressive rock is deep. He’s a thoughtful writer, poet and thinker and his songs reflect that. During his cancer experience, he admits he backed away from music, but through Play It Back he took his first steps as a singer-songwriter. The results are inspiring. Patrick is a family man with a deep sense of social responsibility and compassion for the world.
