We have teamed up with The Cure Starts Now North Texas to raise awareness and money for pediatric cancer research! Kids are the reason we get to perform every single day, and we couldn't think of a more worthy cause to support.
The Cure Starts Now is a 501C3 Federal Non-Profit Organization dedicated to finding the cure for cancer, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult cancers: pediatric brain cancer. Since 2007, The Cure Starts Now has been one of the leaders in non-government funding of pediatric brain cancer research and a pioneer in the effort to find the cure to all cancers.
The North Texas Chapter of The Cure Starts Now was started by our dear friend Michelle Bjornberg and her husband Steve in honor of their daughter, Sydney Reece Bjornberg. Sydney was a vibrant, beautiful, smart 11-year old girl who lost her life to DIPG, an inoperable brain tumor, one week prior to her 5th grade graduation.
Did you know?
Cancer is the number one disease killer of children in America - more than Cystic Fibrosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Asthma and AIDS combined.
In the United States, 1 in 330 children will develop cancer by age 20.
To show our support of pediatric cancer research, we are doing a very special performance Sydney's Band of Gold Gala on October 7th, 2017. Last year, this event raised over $160,000 for pediatric cancer research!
We will also be donating $2 for every ticket sold to each of our New Years Day shows in Dallas at AT&T Performing Arts Center.
If you live in North Texas and are able to attend either of these events, please come out and support! For more info on The Cure Starts now, check out: https://thecurestartsnow.org/
