Glioblastoma Foundation Hosts ‘Rock Against Glioblastoma’ (RAG), Shining a Spotlight on Deadliest Form of Brain Cancer
First Annual Music Festival Features Talented Lineup of Performers at the Legendary Cat’s Cradle, Raising Vital Funds for Glioblastoma Research & Treatment
DURHAM, N.C., November 27, 2023 (Newswire.com) - The Glioblastoma Foundation (https://glioblastomafoundation.org/) is excited to announce its inaugural Rock Against Glioblastoma ™ (RAG) music festival – raising awareness of Glioblastoma, a highly aggressive terminal stage 4 brain cancer, as well as critical funds for the development of new and more effective treatments. It is a heartfelt tribute to the memory of the late drummer Sara Romweber, who lost her battle with the disease in 2019. Glioblastoma also claimed the life of renowned Rush drummer Neil Peart in 2020.
Rock Against Glioblastoma (RAG) takes place December 2nd at the historic Cat’s Cradle in Chapel Hill, NC, featuring an incredible lineup of well-known performers. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. EST, with performances by The Popes, What Peggy Wants, Bad Checks, Snatches of Pink, and Sara’s brother Dex Romweber. Tickets are available at the door and online for $20.
Funds raised during this event will be used to advance critical glioblastoma drug development and other new treatments for patients. Monies will also go towards continuing ongoing research on repurposing existing drug therapies for glioblastoma and developing a blood test for early detection of glioblastoma.
Glioblastoma Foundation CEO Gita Kwatra stated, "We believe that no one should hear the word 'glioblastoma' for the first time upon their own diagnosis. Our mission is to educate, connect, and involve the public in understanding glioblastoma well before it affects them or their loved ones. We're eager to bring more awareness to this issue through the music community, who have already lost so many due to the disease."
