Ozzy Osbourne, the 22nd rocker to become part of Hard Rock's Signature Series T-shirt program, joins music icons and legends, such as Elton John, Eric Clapton and Bruce Springsteen, helping to raise millions of dollars for a number of charitable causes worldwide.

The Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program works to improve the lives of patients and their loved ones by providing at-home help, childcare, transportation, access to support groups and patient care services offered within Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The program also underwrites colon cancer education for healthcare providers. The long-term goal of the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program is to establish an ever-widening array of screening and educational opportunities.
