Gray Matters Music Jam
One Day Music Festival Benefiting UW Carbone Cancer Center- Brain Cancer Research
Sun, Aug 13, 2017 at 1pm
Gray Matters Music Jam is a one day music festival started in memory of Steve Semmann who passed away from brain cancer in 2007 at the young age of 44. Brain Cancer is the second leading cause of death among males up to age 34 and is the most common type of childhood cancer. Over 13,000 deaths occur each year from brain tumors. People like Steve Semmann (a dad, husband, son, brother and friend) diagnosed with a stage 4 glioblastoma brain tumor have a survival rate of only a few months, sadly these survival rates have not changed over the past twenty years.
It is the goal of Gray Matters Music Jam to raise awareness of Brain Cancer and raise funds to benefit research at UW Carbone Cancer Center. UW Carbone Cancer Center is the only comprehensive cancer center in the State of Wisconsin and the work being done there to advance survival rates is tremendous.
