Event Details


‘FK with Cancer’ - A Memoir of Sex, Dating, Love and Cancer by Patrice Capogreco.

Book Launch with discussion and performances.

'A night that goes beyond breast cancer awareness - this is a celebration of bodies, dating, love and sex!’ 

Patrice will be joined on stage for an Artist in Conversation with Namila Benson (ABC TV) as well as performances by friends Cash Savage, Eliza Hull, Jim Lawrie, Loose Tooth and Frankie Mazzone! 

Patrice Capogreco (Naarm/Melbourne) grew up on a hobby farm in Northern Victoria. Her teen years saw limited sexual experimentation due to the strict boundaries of being raised by her conservative Catholic Italian family and the small town mentality of country living. And then in 2021, came an unpleasant surprise. Whilst juggling all that comes with being a single Mum and raising two daughters, Patrice neglected to have a lump checked that she had discovered months earlier. This lump would turn out to be stage 3 breast cancer requiring a long journey of treatment during a pandemic. 

Though Patrice is used to dealing with the business side of enabling artists to tell their stories, now it’s time for Patrice to tell her story in her first ever book. ‘FK with Cancer’ A story that goes beyond breast cancer awareness - this is a celebration of bodies, life, love and sex!
