CancerBlows, but ChopSaver can help. What do an organization raising money for cancer research and a lip balm have in common? For one thing, they were both started by professional trumpet players.

However, Dan Gosling, inventor of ChopSaver, reveals another connection: Cancer patients going through chemotherapy can suffer from dry or chapped lips as a side effect.

It was a natural fit, then, for the two organizations to connect, with ChopSaver donating 1,000 tubes, which were sold at this year’s International Trumpet Guild Conference to benefit CancerBlows. “It’s a behind-the-scenes thing that I can do” to support a fellow musician and CancerBlows, Gosling says.

CancerBlows was started by Ryan Anthony—principal trumpet player with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra—after he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2012. The organization puts on concerts featuring prominent brass artists to raise money for cancer research.

Will all-natural ingredients, ChopSaver relieves chapping, swelling, soreness, and fatigue for wind and brass musicians and can be used by the general public as well.
