Is to help those touched by cancer and other diseases to cope with what life has to give them. Through the poetry, art and music. Patients and caregivers can lean on each other and together…."There's Hope in What We Do".
R.O.C.c.K. means Raising Our Commitment to cancer Kids. It's a choir comprised of survivors, siblings and those touched by cancer ages 3-18. The odd spelling of our name is there for a reason. The second "c" in ROCcK , stands for cancer that we hope will be a small part of their lives. Through the years we've had children join with other chronic illnesses, spina bifida, juvenile diabetes, cystic fibrosis and autism. The only requirement is love of music and want to help. One more thing about us, the kids and adults wearing YELLOW shirts are cancer survivors.
Over the past 17 plus years the ROCcK Choir has performed at nearly every local Relay For Life, American Red Cross, Wounded Warrior, Epilepsy Society, Alzheimer association, Fred Perry Run for kids,Lou Blaney Memorial Race, Care For Kids, MRDD, Autisim Speaks, Wigs For Kids,Victory Junction Gang Camp and numerous private fundraisers. During the summer and school breaks the choir sings at Veterans Hospitals, Hospice house,children's hospitals, survivor camps, and nursing homes.
