Cancer Can Rock was founded by multi-platinum record producer, Jim Ebert, an 18 year brain cancer survivor. Unlike most cancer-based charities, this foundation doesn’t seek a cure, rather it strives to serve a singular community: Musicians facing aggressive cancer.

Donations to Cancer Can Rock go toward getting these musicians into a studio with professionals and producing a tangible result for them and their families during what is otherwise an unsettling time for them. These songs have provided both pride for those who have survived and solace for those that survived them. Many family members and some of the artists have communicated that the studio time was one of the best experiences in the artist’s life.

Cancer has no perks. Cancer Can Rock, at least for a moment, changes that for those it serves.
