Rockin’ for Rachel
Rockin’ for Rachel
Greetings from friends and family of Rachel Vincent.  We’re thrilled to announce the 3rd Annual Rockin’ for Rachel benefit event at the Castle Theatre in downtown Bloomington.  The evening will entail great music, food, auction items, sharing Rachel’s story and information about sarcoma cancer.  

Musical Performances by Sweetwater.

The evening’s goal is to raise funds for a Normal Community High School scholarship for a student who overcame a hardship and excels in subjects Rachel enjoyed:  music, science and math.  A portion of the funds will also be donated to the Sarcoma Foundation of America, whose goal is to advocate for sarcoma research and increase awareness about the disease.

Rachel was only 16 years old when she was diagnosed with sarcoma, a rare cancer of the connective tissues.  Tumors are often hidden deep inside the body (hers was in her thigh), making diagnosis difficult.  By the time her tumor was discovered and removed, it was the size of a softball.  When tumors are that large, there is little hope for a cure.  Sadly, she lost her battle with cancer on January 18, 2009, just a few weeks shy of her 18th birthday. She was a fighter and an amazing young woman who boldly impacted everyone who knew her. 

This event will honor Rachel’s memory, as well as provide funds to help find a cure for this deadly disease.
