BENEFITING: Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
EVENT: Jam Kancer in the Kan
EVENT DATE: Sep 26, 2015
You don't realize just how wide cancer touches others until you hear it about you or from someone you love. Suddenly, while you have heard the chatter in the background before from others, it becomes so much more personal and you begin to hear it everywhere from so many others. It doesn't discriminate against age, race, socio-economics, environment, etc. It's life-altering, sobering, and humbling in a heartbeat. I have dear friends and relatives that have fought hard and won their battle so far. I've also felt the crippling blow of loss after an incredibly brave fight, including most recently, my mother. Pediatric cancer is one of the most unfair and frightening diagnoses, especially as a parent. We can all relate to the helplessness these families must feel. All proceeds raised from our 2nd Annual Kan Jam event will go to Memorial Sloan-Kettering's Pediatric Division. Help us finally Jam Kancer in the Kan!
