Mission Statement

Rock Against Cancer is a nonprofit that supports and empowers pediatric cancer patients by providing
Music Therapy and innovative music programs.

Description

Rock Against Cancer supports and empowers pediatric cancer patients through three main programs:

School of Rock provides a Board Certified Music Therapist, donated instruments, and/or digital recording studio equipment to Children’s Oncology Group treatment centers. This program currently operates in many of the country’s top hospitals, including Mayo Clinic, UCSF, UNC, Duke, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Children's National Medical Center in D.C.

Stars Night Out is a program that provides young cancer patients the chance of a lifetime. They get to meet some of today’s top music artists while enjoying personal photographs, autographs and special concert seating.

Gifts from the Heart serves children unable to leave the hospital. This program brings the gift of music to their bedsides, with help from major recording labels. Children receive a gift bag containing CDs, concert DVDs, t-shirts, temporary tattoos, gold ribbon pins, glow sticks and more.

The Gold Ribbon Project is also now a program under Rock Against Cancer and promotes unity within the childhood cancer community and encourages universal recognition of the gold ribbon as the symbol of awareness and a rallying point for change. Founded in 1997, the Gold Ribbon Project provides high-quality gold ribbons to raise awareness about the devastating effects of childhood cancer.
