C2C was conceived in 2015 by teenagers desperate to help their classmates who were diagnosed with rare (and very scary) PEDIATRIC CANCERS. All were shocked to learn that Pediatric Cancer receives only 4% of allocated government funding for cancer research.
The kids shared a passion for music, so they created this now-annual benefit concert. In addition to the talented student performers, our Special Guest Artists have included OneRepublic, Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol), Zac Barnett (American Authors), Magic Giant, Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters) and Chris Martin (Coldplay).
To date, C2C has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fund important clinical trials through the kids’ oncologist, Dr. Noah Federman, Director of the Pediatric Bone and Soft Tissue Sarcoma Program at UCLA.
This year, Chords2Cure will be a virtual event, held on Saturday, September 26, 2020, featuring special guests Courteney Cox, Helen Hunt and Molly Shannon! Please visit www.Chords2Cure.org for access information. Thank you for helping us cure Pediatric Cancer, one chord at a time!
