On September 24th 2020, singer-songwriter and self-described “cancer thriver” Rachael Sage will bring together a powerful group of performers for a great cause.
“Bravery On Fire: A Benefit for Women’s Cancer Awareness”: The virtual event will raise funds for Foundation For Women’s Cancer, and feature a variety of performers including Grammy winners Paula Cole and Lisa Loeb, Latin Grammy winner Gaby Moreno, Tony-nominated Broadway actors Megan Hilty and Alison Pill.
Plus, musicians Jill Sobule, Kyshona, Grace Pettis, and Heather Mae & Crys Matthews, Grace Kelly, Toby Lightman, Fiona Harte, dancer Abigail Simon and more.
September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month, and Sage – who is in remission from uterine cancer – felt it was more important than ever to shine a light on these cancers that affect so many women, but receive relatively little public attention or research funding.
Sage explains, “Every 5 minutes we lose a woman to gynecological cancer, and it concerns me that women and their loved ones are often embarrassed to even discuss it.
“Before my diagnosis, I was completely uninformed about how wide-reaching these cancers are, across all demographics and worldwide.”
Via this event, Sage hopes to bring awareness to Women’s Cancer in general, specifically highlighting prevention, early detection, and research.
The livestream will be overseen by Grammy and Emmy-winning music and television production company StreamTheory, and livestreamed from braveryonfire.com as well as via Facebook Live and YouTube.
