Heavy-metal legend Tony Iommi has given his backing to a cancer foundation by donating a priceless guitar for a fundraiser.

The Black Sabbath icon is showing support for his late bandmate Ronnie James Dio by providing a one-of-a-kind Gibson Iommi SG prototype left-handed axe, which is expected to go for thousands once put under the hammer.

Iommi, who is currently battling cancer himself, has given the legendary guitar to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund for auction at its second annual awards gala which will take place on October 31st.

All proceeds generated from the sale of the axe will go into the charity's pot and Iommi has agreed to both sign the guitar and pose for a photo with the winning bidder, making it an ideal purchase for any Sabbath fan.

Iommi reunited with fellow Black Sabbath members Ozzy Osbourne and Geezer Butler to perform a host of shows including a headline performance at this year's Download Festival as well as an intimate homecoming show at Birmingham's O2 Academy.
