In 2005, I was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme, an aggressive form of brain cancer, while completing my final year at ISU. I had no idea that every year 70,000 young adults are diagnosed with cancer or that of the 30 million college students there are now, 1 in every 100 are a cancer survivor. These statistics remain constant in our age group and the purpose of this concert is to raise awareness while also raising money for some of the top names in the Young Adult cancer awareness movement. The earlier a cancer is found the better the odds of survival are, with college students juggling many other life elements; it can be difficult to understand that young adult can and do get cancer and it can happen to them.
