More than 1,200 guests attended a fund-raiser at the House of Blues for Eric Donovan, of Scituate, a quadriplegic who was injured while diving at a Scituate beach in 2009. A few weeks before his accident, Donovan was pronounced cancer free at 21 years old after suffering from Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare cancer in the groin area, since the age of 15. Before beating the disease, he was given a 30 percent chance of survival.

More than 1,200 guests attended a fundraiser at the House of Blues for Eric Donovan of Scituate. Donovan, 15, was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare cancer in the groin area. He had a just a 30% chance of survival. Miraculously, in July 2009, at the age 21, he was pronounced cancer free. However, just five short weeks later, Eric dove into the water at a local beach, and fractured several vertebrae. He is now quadriplegic.
