As part of our journey we are conducting a series of local concerts and fundraisers as part of our mission to raise $1 Million for a new cancer research foundation focused on new effective treatments, advocate current treatments to become more affordable, and to support local cancer related charity organizations & support groups.
Through your support, we will be able to reach this goal!
We invite you to join us in making a difference in people's lives.
Attend one of our shows or be creative and host your own fundraiser event for Concerts for a Cure.
Vincent had a great sense of humor and loved Transformer toys. At age 3 he was diagnosed with lukemia. During his four year battle, he underwent agressive chemo treatments, bone marrow & stem cell transplants (both of which his sister Elena was the donor), and even experimental drugs. Two relapses eventually took his life one month shy of his seventh birthday.
During his second relapse, I dreamed there was a cure. Vincent was my little warrior, my soldier who greeted each day with courage. He was, and still is, my inspiration. Today I want to share with the world that nothing is impossible!
Through Concerts for a Cure we can bring people together, knowing there is a way to make a difference in people's lives, and work towards a cure. - Lisa D
