BENEFITING: National Foundation for Cancer Research
EVENT: Landon Music | Arts4TheCure
EVENT DATE: May 05, 2018
My name is Cary Salisbury. I am 13 years old and I have been playing the piano for seven years. I am also passionate in the cause to find a cure for cancer and want to help any way I can. I want to raise money for cancer research because of an event that had a long lasting impact on me. My parents took me to Pennsylvania several years ago to attend a fundraiser organized by a lady who is very close to my parents, Lucy Stanovick. I was really young at the time and did not understand much about cancer. I was horrified witnessing how much pain and suffering cancer caused to Lucy. Lucy had organized fundraising events for several years and that was her last event – she died three days later. I was determined at that time that I would do something to help end cancer when I grow up. That is why I am playing the piano here today. I will be playing the piano tonight to raise money for cancer research. Play for the Cure! Music for the Cure!
