Concert 4 the Cure
September 9, 2017 –
The Concert 4 the Cure, now in its 12th year, was started by the four sons of Theresa Stacey, after their beloved mother lost her twelve year battle with the disease in 2001. Her courageous fight became an inspiration to everyone she touched. The Stacey family has raised over $500,000 through these concerts and feels a sense of purpose behind their desire to organize them. 'We are excited to have this opportunity to honor our mother with this 12th Concert 4 the Cure. We are fortunate to have so many caring people join us in our campaign to fight Cancer by funding research,” said Doug Stacey.
Discovery grants provide seed funding for cancer researchers to pursue bold ideas in the lab that can lead to breakthrough discoveries in the fight against cancer. Findings from preliminary research supported by these grants are essential to obtain funding from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other federal agencies that grant millions every year to support cancer research.
