Proceeds from the concert will benefit Cancer Kiss My Cooley (CKMC).  CKMC is a Huntley, IL based 501(c)3 charitable organization. They are dedicated to raising community awareness towards pediatric brain tumors. CKMC® grants Kisses of HOPE, which are special moments or experiences tailor made for the patient and their family. We receive our Kiss of HOPE referrals aged 0-18 years old through our established partnerships. We are partnered with the brain tumor program at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, IL and Journeycare, a Barrington, IL based community agency that provides hospice and palliative care services to children facing serious or life-limiting illnesses.

DIPG affects children almost exclusively. Approximately 200-400 children in the United States are diagnosed with DIPG each year. These children are typically between the ages of 4 and 11. DIPG accounts for roughly 10-15% of all brain tumors in children.

DIPG is an aggressive tumor that interferes with all bodily functions, depriving a child of the ability to move, to communicate, and even to eat and drink.
